Formula 1's rookie pilot Charles Leclerc says he's had a pretty strange spin on the Chinese Grand Prix.
Sauber pilot, Marcus Ericsson, a more experienced teammate, left behind on Saturday for the first time this year, and the first part of the race was again at the front.
In the first corner, however, the spit was dragged into the gravel pool. Sauber pilot, who managed to return to the piste again, suffered damage on the base and completed the race in the 19th place.
Speaking to Motorsport.com, Leclerc said that this spin was very strange and that he could normally get there faster.
Leclerc said, "It was very strange to me, because in the first round I could turn this curve faster."
"Actually I tried to go slower but I lost the back of the car."
"From then on I have not been able to go at the same speed ever again in all the high-speed bends, and the car is very sensitive and very difficult to drive."
"It was really hard to drive in places like first bend, 7th and 8th bend, 13th bend." said.
The Formula 2 champion said that Ericssino's performances made it difficult for him to get started as he wanted.
The young talent, who says the spin is pretty frustrating, thinks Sauber is reducing the size of the mistake of scoring a fight like Bahrain.
"Of course we would like to get a better result but we do not lose too much." This is not what we want, but there are many positive things on the other side. "
"I think we learned a lot this weekend and we could be stronger in Baku."
Ericsson was slower in the first part as well as in the qualifying rounds in China, but was more competitive and 16th after the middle riding.
"We have to understand why we have so many problems with the balance in the first part, because it was very competitive in the second," he told.
"The race was divided into two different parts for us, and it was nice to finish it strongly because it showed that we have the potential."
