Charles Leclerc acknowledges the progress that Ferrari has done over the offseason to come back after a difficult 2020 season.
The 2020 season has been one of the lowest points for Scuderia Ferrari as it has been one of the worst seasons in decades. However, the 2021 campaign shows some positive signs as they are one of the clear contenders for the 3rd place in the Constructors’ Championship as well as they constantly are around the podium. Charles Leclerc is happy with the team has dealt with the struggles of the past season.
“Last year was definitely a difficult season, to accept where we were. But I think the team has done a great job by accepting pretty quickly that we have done a step back [in 2020], and then we’ve been working in the best way possible. I think since that moment onwards, and this year, we can see that the team has done a great job by just making steps in the right direction,” Leclerc said.
“It shows that all the work that the people have done in Maranello, and that we have also done at the track, is paying off and we can see it at the track. The road is still long and we want to be fighting for the first positions very soon. But I think the way we work is the right one and we are just doing a good job as a team, and we want to keep going like that,” he added.
After the opening 4 races of the 2021 season, Scuderia Ferrari sits 4th in the Constructors’ Champioship with 60 points scored.
