Charles Leclerc revealed that he “needed” the summer break after having experienced “loads of emotions” in the first half of the season.

Leclerc began the 2022 season with two victories in the first three races. However, the Monegasque won only one race and finished on the podium twice after the Australian GP.

As a result, Leclerc is now 80 points behind Max Verstappen in the Drivers’ Championship. Ahead of the Belgian GP, the Ferrari driver admitted that he “needed” the summer break.

“I needed it. The first half of the season has been full of highs and lows, so loads of emotions,” Leclerc said.

“There’s lots of accumulation of emotions which leads to being tired.

“So, I was quite happy to go on holidays and I used these three weeks as best as possible with my family and friends. It was just great.”

Leclerc acknowledged that competing with Red Bull will be difficult, though he still believes in championship success.

“Well, I think we will take it one by one, as a team.

“But for sure we have to maximize every opportunity that we have ahead, and I still believe in the championship.

“Of course, it’s going to be a very difficult challenge. But I will believe in it until the very end.”
