Charles Leclerc is happy with his pole position for tomorrow’s French Grand Prix after admitting to struggling ‘all weekend’ to put a good lap.

The Ferrari driver managed to qualify ahead of Max Verstappen to claim the top spot on the grid. After the qualifying session, he admitted struggling all weekend and thanked his teammate Carlos Sainz, who will start from the back, for his teamwork.

“It was a great lap, I’ve struggled all weekend to put a good lap together and I finally did. But I must admit that I also had the help of Carlos and that was amazing teamwork.

“Without Carlos, it would have been much closer. Hopefully, he can join us in the fight for victory tomorrow,” he said.

The Monegasque admitted he expected Red Bull to be quicker than his team this weekend at Paul Ricard.

“After Q1 I was very surprised with the pace we had, and also in Q2, we were very strong. Somehow we managed to turn it around for qualifying, which was a nice surprise.

“The car feels great, but it’s hard to understand what the Red Bull guys did yesterday. Let’s see how it goes tomorrow,” he concluded.
