Divided between personal interest and team reasons, Charles Leclerc does not seem to have doubts in putting themaximum interest of Ferrari. The words spoken at the press conference at the end of qualifying for the British GP do honor to the # 16 of the red, who tomorrow at Silverstone will start from third position on the starting grid, behind teammate Carlos Sainz – author of his first pole career position – and Max Verstappen, leader of the world championship with 49 points ahead of Leclerc.
The situation of the championship would perhaps make one imagine the native of the Principality anxious to recover as many points as possible and eager to get help from the team in their fight against Red Bull # 1. Instead it was the same class of ’97 who made himself available to the needs of the Cavallino. “Would I be happy to help Carlos win his first race tomorrow? Of course I would be very happy if Carlos wins the race tomorrow and I don’t hide the fact that I want to win too. But I believe that the most important thing is to finish first and second“ Leclerc said. The Monegasque, therefore, in case he finds himself behind Sainz but in front of his direct opponent for the world race, Max Verstappen, has made it clear that he does not expect gifts from his team.
Inevitably, however, in the management of strategies, in the Maranello garage we will try to reason to guarantee ourselves a tactical advantage on the reigning world champion: “If we can make strategic moves between the cars I’m pretty sure we will – commented Leclerc – but let’s see how it will go tomorrow. But I feel confident with the car, so let’s wait and see. The team result is very good – he then concluded, speaking this time to the official F1 channel – And obviously it will be even better if I can pass Max at the first corner, finding us first and second. But let’s see what it will be possible to do“.
