Leclerc’s race at Silverstone was a challenge after a Q2 exit, as he advanced three places at the start and found himself behind team-mate Carlos Sainz. Unfortunately, getting stuck behind Lance Stroll’s slow Aston Martin slowed down Leclerc, making it difficult to pass until Lap 13. Ferrari tried a risky strategy of pitting him for Intermediates on Lap 19 to catch up, but track conditions did not worsen as expected. Team principal Vasseur defended the decision, recognizing that Leclerc being out of position influenced the outcome. Sainz managed to seize fourth place, but Piastri’s undercut during the tire change back to slicks hindered Leclerc’s ability to recover. Vasseur emphasized the driver’s role in making strategic calls in mixed conditions, absolving the pit wall of blame.
