Ferrari confirm "short-term fix" for Canada

Ferrari has confirmed a "short-term fix" is in place for the Canadian Grand Prix following Carlos Sainz's hydraulic failure in Azerbaijan.

Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc both retired from Sunday's Baku race after suffering reliability problems.

It was Ferrari's first double-DNF for reliability reasons since 2009 with Sainz forced out of the race with a hydraulic issue while Leclerc's power unit billowed smoke as he slowed.

Issuing a brief statement on Tuesday evening, Ferrari confirmed a short-term fix for Sainz's issue will be in place for this weekend's race in Montreal.

"Charles’ engine arrives at the factory tomorrow, an initial assessment should be completed by the evening," said Ferrari.

"Hydraulic components from Carlos’ car have already been examined. A short-term fix is in place for Canada, while work is on-going on mid/long-term solutions."

Ferrari's failure to finish coupled with Red Bull's one-two with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez has seen the Scuderia drop to 80 points back on its championship rival.

Leclerc also dropped to third in the drivers' standings, behind Perez, and trailing leader Verstappen by 34.
