ANDThis Sunday July 10, Sergio ‘Czech’ Prez I not only suffered the pain of being left out of the Austrian Grand Prix of Formula 1, but saw how the second place in the Drivers’ Championship slipped from his hands due to the triumph of Charles Leclerc, staying the Monegasque with the second rung, at the moment.

Date 11 of the championship was played, and there are still 11 other dates to play. Undoubtedly, the tapato is motivated by being among the first places; however, it is not surprising that he became more motivated by recovering his second place and getting fully into the fight for the individual title, in the hands right now of his teammate Max Verstappen.

That is why, here in CLEAR BRAND we show you the factors that must be present for Checo Prez to return to the second rung after 53 laps at Paul Ricard, inside the French Grand Prix, to be held on July 22, 23 and 24.

There are only 19 points difference between Checo and Leclerc, so the chances are very small so that the Mexican can reach the Ferrari element:

What Checo needs in France to overtake Leclerc in the Drivers’ Championship

  • Checo (151 pts) needs first place (25 pts) in the GP to reach 176 units. Taking into account that Charles has 170, he also needs the Monegasque to be below seventh place so that he adds 4 or less units
  • With a second place (18 pts) Checo will reach 169 units, so it depends on Leclerc not adding units; in addition to getting the fastest lap, which gives you an extra point. With this, both Checo and Charles tied with 170 points

As we can see, it is extremely complicated that the Mexican overtakes Charles at the end of the month in the Drivers’ Championship; so you can’t afford to lose points, least of all behind the wheel of Ferrari. It seems that Prez’s direct rival in the coming weeks has a first and last name.
