As per Planet F1, Leclerc said that the reports are absolutely untrue. Out of all the reports that came out, about 90 percent are completely unfounded, the Monegasque said.

The former Alfa Romeo driver further stated that any rumor about him meeting with Elkann is baseless. Moreover, both Leclerc and Sainz confirmed that there is no dispute in the team.

The European country’s leading media house Corriere dello Sport reportedly sent out multiple stories of David Sanchez, Laurent Mekies, and Enrico Cardile are set to leave the Maranello-based team.

Star driver Carlos Sainz also opened up on the rumors surrounding the team. He said that the reports regarding the departure of key officials were made to destabilize the team. However, the Spaniard assured that the team is in a much better place.

It might look like the inside story of Ferrari is troublesome, but Sainz stated that it is not the case. Everyone back at Maranello knows that they need to improve, and they are committed to the team, believe the former McLaren man.
