Scuderia Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc believes that rival F1 teams should trust the FIA and their judgement about the team’s 2019 power unit.
On the final day of pre-season testing, it was revealed that the FIA had entered a private settlement with Ferrari over the legality of last season’s power unit.
It prompted all seven non-Ferrari powered teams to address a letter to the governing body which threatened legal action if the results of the investigation were not fully disclosed.
Both the FIA and the World Motorsport Council quickly rebuked those teams saying that the investigation and its findings were considered closed.
“I understand it yes and no,”Leclerc told motorsportweek.com.
“In a way they should also trust the FIA for doing their work and I think it is completely understandable that they don’t explain absolutely everything because there is a lot of work for us on all the parts.
“So, if you make all of this public you will make all the work a team has done public and for me that is understandable.
“I fully trust my team that is for sure and I trust the FIA for making sure everything was okay, so for me it is done, and I look to the future.”
Late last year Leclerc signed a five-year contract renewal with Ferrari, extending his services until 2024.
