So far, Charles LeClerc has had the measure of his older and more experienced teammate, Sebastian Vettel. All this is while the latter makes more and more mistakes in his pursuit of rival, Lewis Hamilton.
“This is very nice to hear but on the other hand I don’t spend too much time thinking about it, just trying to get better every race and focus on the weaknesses on my side, from the last Grand Prix and try to fix them and get better for the next one.”
Charles LeClerc also revealed that he tweaked his driving style ahead of the 2019 season. He believes that that is the trick to gaining the upper had over the 4-time world champion.
“Seb and I, we have two very different driving styles,” he explained. “So, we require some changes on the car and some slightly different balance.”
“I won’t go too much in detail with this but we don’t require exactly the same car obviously.”
Charles LeClerc is on a roll this year and there have only been three races done and dusted. But the season is long and there are plenty of chances for Vettel to strike back.
