Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc admitted he has “moved on” from his crash at the French Grand Prix.

The Monegasque had to retire from the race after crashing out at Paul Ricard, allowing Max Verstappen to further his championship advantage by 63 points.

“I just need to move on, focus 100% for this [Hungarian GP] weekend, try to do the best possible, try to win this race, and then I’m sure it will go well,” said Leclerc, trying to be optimistic for the remaining 10 races of the season.

“At the end there’s nothing that will help me dwelling on my mistake or staying in the past on that mistake. I did that mistake, it cost me a lot of points. I’m aware of it, and that’s it.”

“The real pressure I had before that, when Max was really behind,” he said. “Then at that point Max had already moved to a non-optimal strategy. So I just had to push and focus on my own race, which I was doing.

“But then obviously when you are fighting with the limits, sometimes mistakes can happen. And I think this is a kind of mistake that I just went too far and that’s it.”
