Charles Leclerc is optimistic Ferrari will achieve a good result at tomorrow’s Spanish Grand Prix.

The Monegasque qualified on pole for tomorrow’s main event but says he still needs to be careful despite starting in a “strong position” as his team struggled to manage their tires, unlike Red Bull.

“I feel good. It was a very very difficult session,” he said. “Especially in Q3, because I did a mistake in the first run, and then obviously, I only had one lap. But it went extremely well. I had a bit of a moment on my lap, but in the end made it stick. Very very happy with pole position, it was a very good lap and the car was amazing too. So yeah, very happy.”

“I am in a strong position to start the race, but we’ve been struggling with tires in last two races compared to Red Bull. So, Max is just behind. If we don’t manage it well, we will lose that win. So, we need to get on top of it and do a good job tomorrow with tire management.”
