Charles Leclerc believes that 5th place in Canada was his maximum given the challenges he had to face.

Leclerc started the race from P19 after exceeding the limit of used power unit components. The Monegasque went on to finish the race in P5, though he had to deal with difficulties throughout the race.

“In the very first part of the race, there was no problem with traction in general. It was just everyone had DRS so I couldn’t do anything,” Leclerc reflected on his race.

“In the middle stint, there was quite a big problem of traction, but that was only because Esteban [Ocon] had new tires and so out of turn 10 that’s where you need the tires. He had much more grip than I did, so I struggled to follow him there and that was very frustrating.

“Then obviously we had the problem at the pit stop, which made our life much more difficult, because I got back four cars again with the DRS train and I had to be a bit more aggressive after that to come back. So yeah, considering all of this, P5 was the best.”
