Ferrari SF1000 Turkish GP 2020 #16 Charles Leclerc 4th Place
Let's just say that the 2020 season was not Ferrari's year. The lousy engine was a stamp on the Italians' entire season. Even Charles Leclerc, who burst onto the scene like a comet in 2019, had to settle for a points finish at best, but there were still race weekends when Ferrari were more competitive and Monaco were able to shine.
The pandemic-ravaged 2020 season has been replaced by the Turkish Grand Prix, last held in 2011. The late autumn weather meant that the field was greeted by largely rain-slick conditions, giving hope of a good result for teams that would not have had a chance to kick the ball around in normal conditions.
Charles Leclerc had a great qualifying session, but qualifying was a disappointing 12th place for the Monaco driver. Then Leclerc adapted to the changing conditions in the race and this time Ferrari partnered him to a strong result. The Monaco driver fought his way to the front and could have been in contention for second place on the final lap when he overtook Racing Point's Pérez, but he misjudged the braking distance and not only missed out on second place, but also the podium. Of course, he was not happy about the wasted opportunity, but even fourth place this year was a good result for the Italians. Looksmart has released Charles Leclerc's car in 1:43 scale with intermediate tyres.
