A very gentleman Lewis Hamilton has said he is “disgusted” for Charles Leclerc after the Ferrari driver’s incredible blunder while leading the French Grand Prix.
The Monegasque’s error handed championship leader Max Verstappen another big points cushion that saw the Red Bull driver extend his lead over his rival in the drivers’ standings to 63 points.
As an F1 fan, Hamilton has never made a secret of his fondness for Ferrari, and given Mercedes’ secondary role in the championship this season, a victory for Maranello is the best thing the seven-time world champion could hope for.
“It’s great to see the Ferrari performing this yearsaid Hamilton after the French Grand Prix. I am disgusted for Charles, who is doing a great job, just like Carlos. »
“It’s not easy though, to get that pace and performance and maintain it. It’s hard work and I’m wholeheartedly with Ferrari. I hope they will be able to put everything back together” he adds.
“They’re a great team that will continue to keep their heads down. Yes, they have massive gaps, obviously quite huge, so it’s pretty clear where they need to improve. »
“But a lot can turn in their favor in the future, so I would just advise them to keep pushing.” concludes Lewis.
