Charles Leclerc said after the 2021 season came to an end that race management had been his biggest improvement.
The Ferrari driver admitted that it was one of his weaknesses both in 2019 and in 2020. He felt confident in qualifying, but when it came to managing the tires he did not feel comfortable.
“Definitely the race management in general,” the Monegasque said.
“I think, since early 2020, I started to say that it was one of my weaknesses, especially after 2019, where I had a lot of good qualifying, but then in the race, I was struggling a bit more.”
Leclerc focused on improving race management already in 2020, and now he feels that it is one of his strengths.
“I put a lot of work into it in 2020, [and] I got much better. And I think in 2021, it’s actually one of my strengths. Now I feel good whenever we need to do some tire management. I feel like I’m doing a good job.”
