Laurent Mekis: We hope for the fourth-fifth place


Ferrari sporting director Laurent Meckis said the team drew conclusions from the situation last weekend when they ignored the hidden drive damage on Charles Leclair’s car.

“The incident in Monaco made us stronger. We realized that we should improve the process of checking the car, which was used in that situation, – quoted Laurent Mekis website RaceFans. – We underestimated the possible consequences of the accident, but the team made conclusions – this is how we are progressing in each area.

It can be a bad experience, like the incident in Monaco, or a successful performance, when we achieve better results than expected – all this helps us to develop the team and make it stronger. We are focused on this process. “

Laurent Mekis also spoke about the expectations from the Grand Prix of Azerbaijan: “Red Bull Racing cars are very fast this weekend, but we have different goals. Mercedes cars are likely to be in top shape in qualifying – training results can be deceiving.

Now our goal is to become the best team from the rest, but there are quite a lot of applicants for this status. As we expected, both McLaren riders are fast on this track. We hope for fourth or fifth place – this is our maximum.

At the moment, our car is effective in slow corners, and we have confirmed this on various tracks. Now we work with speed in medium-speed and fast turns, but fortunately, there are not very many such turns in Baku. That’s why we looked pretty good in Friday practice. “
