Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc consciously says he knows what it takes to get there to get even more performance because he and Ferrari want to stay competitive in the title fight against Max Verstappen. Already at the opening of the new era of Formula 1, Leclerc and Verstappen have already shown that they will obviously lead a big fight for the title - something that the Italian team eagerly expects.
wheel-to-wheel fights have amazed the motorsport world as they outwit each other on the track over who will overtake whom in order to then detach themselves and create a comfortable advantage of being the first to cross the finish line.
The Monegasque and the Dutchman clearly and skillfully use the DRS zones, which allow them to approach each other, and even when one passes into the leading position, a counter-attack by the other driver soon follows. In the first race in Bahrain, Leclerc was the first to cross the finish line, while Verstappen had to give up.
At the Saudi Grand Prix, the new world champion came out on top. The Ferrari driver was right behind him, only half a second apart. In the driver standings, Charles has 45 points, while Max has 20 points less.
Ferrari and Leclerc
In addition, the 24-year-old is the fifth driver in Ferrari history to win pole position and win the race at the opening of the season, and the four drivers who have done so before have led the team to the title.
However, Leclerc knows he needs even more to become an even better driver. He assures us that he knows what he needs to do in order to improve himself and be even better. "In general, I feel good, but there is certainly more to come.
What makes me happy is not the performance, but the fact that I know exactly where I still need to work and what I need to improve in order to unlock more performance, "said Leclerc. "I have no idea whether that will be enough or not to win the title.
It is still very early, but let's say it is a very good start to the season, "he added. "As I have said many times, I think that development will be crucial, and we as drivers must help the team in the best possible way to maintain this competitiveness," the Ferrari driver concluded. The season is long, and Ferrari has never seemed so serious. It is certain that they strive for the greatest goals
