Charles Leclerc: I have found peace and maturity

May 25, 2022

May 25, 2022 In an interview with La Gazette De Monaco, the Ferrari driver talked about the start of the season, the team’s form and the fight for the title… Q: Charles, this week will be the seventh stage of the World Cup. How do you rate the start of the season? Charles Leclerc: The rating is very good. I am pleased with the work done since the beginning of the season. In some races, we were a little behind Red Bull. I can’t forget the retirement in Barcelona and the mistake in Imola, but everything else is positive. I am satisfied with the way we work with the team. Q: Until last week you were in the lead in the World Championship. After your retirement and his victory, Max Verstappen took the lead. Does your approach change depending on whether you are leading or catching up? Charles LeclercA: It doesn’t change anything for me. Yes, I would prefer to come to the home stage as the leader of the individual standings, but in this phase of the season it is not important. Ahead of 16 Grand Prix, many points to be played. Before the Spanish Grand Prix, we had a lot of questions. In particular, a lot of tire wear, which did not allow the race distance to match the speed of Red Bull and keep them behind. Stage in Barcelona gave a lot of answers, everything was generally positive there, except for the problem that cost me the race. The approach has remained the same. I will give 110%, as in all races since the beginning of the year. For me, this is a special Grand Prix, my home stage, but it is important not to overdo it. You need to gradually progress and move on. Question: Did the new products that appeared on the car in Barcelona solve the problem of tire wear? Charles Leclerc: The novelties worked, allowing us to add. This is important, because in Formula 1 the results on the track do not always correspond to the calculated ones. Wear has indeed decreased, but after one race it is too early to draw conclusions. We can only say with certainty that we have taken a step in the right direction. Q: You’ve been competitive since the beginning of the season, but could you expect your team mate Carlos Sainz to have problems? Charles Leclerc: Carlos is a very good racer, he proved it more than once. Yes, in the first races he had some difficulties, but I think it’s only a matter of time – soon he will feel comfortable in the car and will be able to fight for victories. Question: How do you see the fight for the title? Can we expect Mercedes drivers to join it? Charles Leclerc: I think the main fight will unfold between Red Bull and Ferrari. Now Mercedes is a little behind, although such a team can never be excluded from the number of contenders. Question: At the track in Monaco, the contract with Formula 1 is ending, negotiations are underway to extend it. How will you feel if your home stage leaves the calendar? Charles Leclerc: I can not imagine that the calendar was not the Grand Prix of Monaco. There are some truly legendary circuits in Formula 1 and Monaco is one of them. We must preserve the historical heritage – this is important not only for our sport, but also for the Principality. I have spoken about this many times. Those who make decisions know my position very well. I am in favor of keeping this Grand Prix, and I am not the only one who thinks it is special. Q: In Formula 1 you have not had any luck at home so far. Do you think about it when you come to the Monaco Grand Prix? Charles Leclerc: I really didn’t have much luck here, but I don’t believe in bad luck. I am sure that all these incidents that I have encountered here will eventually become a beautiful story. Let’s hope that luck will turn to me this year, because now every point is important. When it comes to retirements, it happens in motorsport. In the race, I will not think about it and will not change anything. Question: What would you choose – the championship title or victory in Monaco? Charles Leclerc: I love Monaco very much, but if I have to choose one thing, I will choose the title. But since I don’t have such a choice, I will try to win here first, and then win the title. Q: Rain is not ruled out this weekend. What kind of weather would you prefer? Charles Leclerc: In recent years, Ferrari in the rain sometimes had problems, although this season everything is going better and in Imola we saw that we can be competitive in such conditions. Honestly, I don’t care if it rains or not. Q: What is the difference between Leclerc in 2019, his first season at Ferrari, and Leclerc in 2022? Charles Leclerc: I have changed a lot compared to three years ago. Sport is like life, you grow, gain experience, discover something new every year… The changes in piloting technique are difficult to describe in words. It is the accumulation of small details that ultimately give rise to evolution. Over the years, I have gained peace and maturity.
