    Former Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 live

    Yeah Leclerc not very happy, more to the point his engineer not very happy with the stress of his gearbox going over the bump. He's still pushing on high fuel.

  9. Radio message - to Leclerc

    "Charles, try to up shift earlier on exit on Turn Nine."

    CL: "Yeah but guys I cannot up shift earlier, I'm already doing it. I will try even more, but that's what I'm already doing, I'm shifting before the bump!"

    It's fair to say, Charles isn't very happy.
