Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc states that his mindset has changed as he now has a competitive race car.

Leclerc had a remarkable start to the 2022 season. He won the races in Bahrain and Australia and also was the runner-up in Saudi Arabia. As a result, the Monegasque is currently leading the Drivers’ Championship with 71 points scored. The fact that he had never been in such position in F1 as well as Ferrari’s performance changed his mindset.

“I’ve been in this situation in the junior categories but then, to be in this situation in Formula 1 means a lot,” he said.

“Especially after the last few years, and especially with a team like Ferrari, so it feels incredible.

“Obviously, the mindset is a bit different compared to the last few years.

“Because now I know that, underneath me, I’ve got a car that is capable of winning.

“I don’t really have to overdo things, or to do something extremely special and spectacular to actually get one or two positions, because I know that it’s in the car and and I just have to do the job.

“So the mindset is a little bit different this year.”
