Charles Leclerc returned to his best form yesterday in the Canadian Grand Prix, finishing 5th, but still conceded 15 more points to his rival, Max Verstappen, in the F1 drivers’ position.
Sergio Perez remains ahead of him but with a three-point lead after retiring from Montreal, but Monegasque remains optimistic about the clash against Red Bull in the upcoming race.
“It motivates me because of course I know the rhythm is in the car. As long as it’s mathematically possible, I believe it.”
“I’m not worried, I’m very motivated to finally have a clean weekend and show that we are here and that we are strong. So yes, at Silverstone, I hope we can make it, for change, win and score. Those big points that we have been missing for a few races. “
“We can see that it is clear that Red Bull has had a number of issues as well, so that reliability will certainly be a major factor.
“But that’s what we need whenever we have a tough weekend like this weekend, just to get good points and that’s what we did in Canada.”
