Charles Leclerc stated that he felt confident at the Austrian Grand Prix despite recent misfortunes.

Before the Austrian GP, Leclerc had a seven-race winless streak as well as had not finished on the podium for five races. Both streaks ended last Sunday with the victory at the Red Bull Ring. Despite frustrating results in previous races, Leclerc still had confidence in his car.

“I was quite confident. The pace has been strong in the last five races. Obviously, I had quite often said that on the Saturday night, but not only to say it, I believed in it in all five races,” he said.

“So it’s good to finally show it on a Sunday and [to have] a clean weekend.”

The Monegasque added that his performance in the Sprint was encouraging as well.

“Speaking about [the Sprint], I think the pace was there, even though at the end of the Sprint it was difficult to know how much Max [Verstappen] was pushing.

“I had a feeling that we had the upper hand at the end of that Sprint race, so that’s why I was confident.”
