Charles Leclerc has reflected on the Qatar Grand Prix, where he managed to cross the finish line in the 8th position.
- Leclerc had to start the race from the 13th place after a chassis crack affected his qualifying pace.
- The Monegasque is delighted that the chassis change improved his performance.
What he had to say:
- “I’m satisfied with today. Obviously when you look at the position it’s nothing special but if you look at the pace in free air in the second stint it’s very positive and we were very strong. It’s a track where it is quite difficult to overtake – especially when you are on the same strategy as the guys in front. So whenever I was in free air I could show my true pace.”
- “And I’m quite happy to see that the pace is back after the change of chassis because yesterday was a bit worrying to see so much lack of pace and obviously when you see a chassis is damaged you never know how much is in the chassis damage or whatever, so to find the pace back after that change feels good.”
