With this victory, Ferrari has bridged the gap to the front-runners in the championship. Team Principal Bruno Famin expressed optimism about their progress. Leclerc’s win removes the millstone of past disappointments, and the Scuderia is poised for further success. Recently embarked on a two-day testing session at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France. The focus of this test was to evaluate wet-weather tyres and improve their performance for the 2025 season.

On the second day of testing, the track at Paul Ricard was artificially watered using the circuit’s irrigation system. The goal was to replicate wet and intermediate tyre conditions accurately. Pirelli, the official tyre supplier for Formula 1, introduced a new extreme wet compound for testing. This compound aims to enhance grip and stability in heavy rain conditions. Engineers closely monitored Leclerc’s lap times and feedback to assess the tyre’s performance.

Simone Berra, a Pirelli engineer, shed light on the test objectives: “We have two days of testing. The first is a dry session, while on the second day, we will wet the track. But the priority is to run on wet tyres to improve performance.” Berra emphasized the importance of accurate wet-weather simulations to refine tyre compounds.
