Mattia Binotto believes that Charles Leclerc’s performance shows that he is ready to be in the title contention.

After the first two races of the 2022 season, Leclerc is leading the Drivers’ Championship with 45 points scored. The Monegasque is among the title contenders as of now. Binotto has praised Leclerc’s performance at the start of the season.

“I think he is [driving like someone who can win the title],” the Ferrari team principal said.

“But it’s something which I was expecting when renewing as well with him in the last year for up to 2024, because we know what he’s capable of.

“I think he is simply demonstrating that he’s capable of fighting for the championship.

“No doubt he’s got the talent, he’s got the capacity, he is a very good racer and we’re very happy with what he’s proving in these two races.”
