Charles Leclerc has reflected on a very challenging Qatar Grand Prix qualifying for him as he did not get to Q3.


  • Leclerc reveals that he suffered a lack of grip on Saturday evening.
  • The Monegasque admits that they need to find the cause of the issues.

What he had to say:

  • “Normally I’m quite good at understanding what’s wrong, in a qualifying lap especially, which is one of my strengths. But this one is a very strange one. I just had no grip from all four tires. It’s not like I had a balance issue or anything like that. I was just struggling with all four tires with grip.”
  • “So we need to look into it whether there was anything strange or not. If there’s not anything strange, then I will be very happy to understand what I did wrong. Let’s see.”
  • “I have no idea why [issues appeared]. The tires just felt at their limits. I don’t know if I wasn’t putting the car, the tires in the right window before the lap. I have no idea for now, but we need to find an explanation.”
