Leclerc critical of Hockenheim track following German GP DNF

Leclerc critical of Hockenheim track following German GP DNF

A frustrated Charles Leclerc criticised the run-off areas around the Hockenheim circuit after he spun out of the German Grand Prix amid wet conditions.

A number of drivers struggled to maintain control on the track, with Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton and Niko Hulkenberg among others also finding themselves in the gravel.

Leclerc was in a good position to challenge for the lead midway through the race when he lost control and collided with the barrier, and was unable to restart.

Speaking to journalists post-race, he claimed that the tarmac exit was 'dangerous', though was keen to add that it was not an excuse for his retirement.

He said: “The only thing I can say is I think it’s unacceptable to have this type of tarmac exit out of the two last corners there. It’s like a dragster track and once you go on it, it’s just very, very dangerous.

“My mistake was not huge but going on this tarmac I had absolutely no control over the car.

“This is in no way an excuse to the mistake. I take full responsibility of it but I believe that this type of tarmac should not be on a Formula 1 track.”
