The French Grand Prix has been in the headlines recently, especially because of the new controversy surrounding Charles Leclerc. Even NBA players got involved, starting with Evan Fournier. The latter has also launched a sacred debate on Twitter, with his tweet.
Starting in pole position during the GP of France this weekend, Charles Leclerc also seemed destined for victory for many minutes. Unfortunately for him, the day in Monaco ended in terrible disappointment for the Ferrari driver, yet again. He indeed left the race for abandonment, after having crashed against the protections on the track. It was therefore Max Verstappen who took the victory, enough to make the player who played at home scream in frustration, being from Monte-Carlo:

Fournier stunned after the failure of Charles Leclerc
It is already the third time that the Frenchman has finished without a single point following a race this season, which seriously penalizes him in the general classification. This trend, which is worrying to say the least, leaves one wondering, including among athletes from other disciplines. In front of his TV to follow the event, Evan Fournier had particular difficulty understanding, to the point of asking their opinion to the specialists among his fans:
F1 experts you can explain to me what is going on with #Leclerc and Ferrari. I find it difficult to understand what is wrong with each race.

From what we could hear from the radio communication, the problem would lie with the accelerator pedal. However, this had already posed a problem two weeks ago during the Austrian GP, even though Leclerc had emerged victorious. A rather dramatic technical defect therefore for a team as prestigious as the Scuderia… The latter was not spared by Internet users, who did not hesitate to set it on fire in the process.
Just Ferrari and its lame strategies, problems etc.

Driver error or technical fault? Like Evan Fournier, it’s hard to know why Charles Leclerc’s races are encountering so many problems this year. The consequences are in any case severe, because according to the pilot, this is equivalent to 25 points less in the classification, if not more.
