Charles Leclerc believes that the fact he is the championship leader shows that he “is doing something right.”
Leclerc has been leading the Drivers’ Championship since the Bahrain GP. However, Max Verstappen starts putting pressure as he has won two races in a row and reduced the gap to the Monegasque to 19 points.
Leclerc has reflected on his position in the standings and stated that he likes it.
“I think we have been in only one position since the beginning of this season, which means we are hunted for now,” he said.
“I quite like this position, to be honest, because it means that you are doing something right, but it is also true that it’s two races that the gap is slowly closing down.
“But I don’t really mind in whichever position I am in; I just want to be the most competitive out there.”
At the same time, Leclerc admits that Red Bull Racing are currently having the advantage.
“At the moment, it seems that Red Bull has the upper hand in the races.”
