Leclerc applauds Sainz: "He's very competitive and that's great"

The Ferrari driver is delighted with the arrival of Carlos in Maranello. The Monegasque says that the pressure they exert on each other has produced great results.


Last season was one of the worst years for the Italian team in Formula 1. Ferrari finished the year with sixth place in the Constructors' World Championship. But this year things have changed, those of Maranello with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz Jr at the helm, have reaped three podiums in the first half of the season. Even at Silverstone, the Monegasque driver fingered victory.

For Charles the improvement of Ferrari is not a surprise: "I think there is a lot of work behind it and I can see it every time I go to Maranello, here on the track. So it is not an absolute surprise", continues the one from the Principality. "Obviously, there is a big gain compared to last year, which is great to see, and it shows that we are working well. But it is not the end of the road, we are aiming to get back up."

He applauds the work of the team, but also considers the arrival of Carlos Sainz very important, which gives them that point to be able to fight for victories today. "It's the first year with Carlos as a teammate. He's going really, really well. We're pushing each other, he's very, very competitive, which is great for me."

"As a team we are working very, very well. We try to take advantage of this momentum to gain experience and be as prepared as possible for next year, which is going to be very important. Not forgetting this year and trying to maximize our results," he said. completed the Monegasque on the web portal.
