On Sunday, Charles Leclerc, the Ferrari F1 driver who has been leading the tally of driver’s championship race, has broken off the 1974 Ferrari car of three-time world champion Niki Lauda following a break failure in a demonstration at Monaco’s Historic GP track.
Although, Lauda took charge of the wheel for a little while, the current Ferrari F1 driver has been at the driving seat for most of the time. Many may witness the event as an embarrassment, but the 1974 Ferrari also had experienced problems on previous occasions, as the car crashed at the same event last year with ex-F1 driver Jean Alesi had been behind the wheel.
Nonetheless, Leclerc’s has been en-route to finish the demonstration, but he apparently made a mistake by going deeper into the La Rascasse corner as cited by the experts and lost control of his car.
The car spun and its rear-end had crashed into the barriers. Nevertheless, Leclerc managed to take control of the car after the impact, though the damage to rear wing had forced him to race straight towards the pit.

In point of fact, latest awkward moment for Ferrari F1 constructors came forth as the Team have been leading the tally of driver’s championship title with a more-matured Leclerc leading the grid.
Although, there had been a neck-to-neck battle between Verstappen and Leclerc during last weekend’s Miami GP, though, considering the track’s bumpiness and his lead over the Dutchman in title race, Leclerc decided not to chase Verstappen after having been overtaken at the ninth lap.
However, an introduction of a late safety car had offered an opportunity for Leclerc, but an ultra-perfect Verstappen had shown a sustenance of his jubilant run of form. Following the Miami GP, Leclerc stands 18 points ahead of Verstappen.
