Charles Leclerc will compete in Spa-Francorchamps with an engine similar to that used in Hungary. Not the same unit, because the engine was irreparably damaged by contact with Lance Stroll at the start of the race, but with the same specifications. Updates foreseen by Ferrari, which should have given 10 hp more to the Reds in Belgium, they are not ready yet (some parts are still in production): the Monegasque will be able to exploit them when he will mount the fourth power unit and therefore will have to collect the penalty of ten positions on the grid.
For a Leclerc who at this point can only wait to know when he will be forced to make a comeback from the rear, there is a Carlos Sainz that can breathe a sigh of relief. According to what he reported Auto Motor und Sportin fact, Ferrari managed to save the second unit (replaced on Friday at the Hungaroring for some suspicious parameters). The Spaniard, therefore, still has two engines to fully exploit before facing a penalty.
