Charles Leclerc: “The car is solid, a positive sign”

“Last Sunday’s victory is a further motivation to fight for the top positions once again. We are happy with the result obtained in Bahrain, in Maranello everyone is happy with the work we are doing. The last two years have been very difficult and we have prepared in the best possible way, now we have to keep pushing. In the meantime, however, it’s nice to be back fighting for the very first positions “.

These are the words of the Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, in view of the Jeddah GP in Saudi Arabia, which will start on Sunday at 19.00 Italian.

“The machines are totally different than last year, it is also difficult to make a comparison. I’m certainly happy with the balance that gave us riders confidence to push properly. This car is solid and this is a very positive sign – explains the Monegasque – Are we still favorites? I don’t think or at least I don’t feel like saying that we are favorites this time too, Red Bull is strong and this time they will certainly want to reach the end. As a rider, I feel better than in 2019, the year in which I couldn’t keep up with the race. I was strong in qualifying, but weak in tire management. I worked a lot on this aspect and I feel improved in recent years, in Bahrain we saw the result ”.

Sainz, I aim to adapt Ferrari to my driving style

“In Bahrain I was not entirely happy with the car, I was unable to drive it as I wanted and I still have to adapt to this new generation of single-seaters. But we got a great result and now I’m working with the team to try to bring the car closer to my driving style, I’m sure I will gradually feel more and more at ease ”. Said the other Ferrari driver, Carlos Sainz.

After the second place obtained last Sunday behind his teammate Leclerc, the Spaniard seems really close to an agreement for the renewal of the contract with the ‘Rossa’: “we’re getting there, it will certainly be an important contract for my career and I want that everything is done in the right way – he explains – The important thing is that both Ferrari and I want the same things to reach an agreement “.
