All the songs I listen to are very depressing: Charles Leclerc

In a recent fan meet-up, we saw them bonding, yet again. When they were asked by a fan about their favorite songs to listen to, their answers were quite different, but their chatter was amusing.

While Charles mentioned he listens to songs that are depressing in nature, Sainz’s choice was a popular one.

“All the songs I listen to are very depressing,” said the Ferrari driver. Upon being asked about his reasoning, he said, “I don’t know. I love depressing songs.”

“Because you are too happy,” joked Sainz.

The Spaniard then brought back another F1 joke. He said, “Obviously, apart from ‘Smooth Operator,’ that has become a song for me,” which obviously made all the fans break out in laughter. When Charles asked him if he really likes the actual song, Sainz replied in the affirmative.

Yeah, the actual song is cool. You don’t like this song? It is a typical song in the background of a restaurant. I can live without this song but now it’s become a bit more special you need to understand.” said Leclerc.
