F1 News: Charles Leclerc Speaks Out On Controversial Italian GP Ending

Charles Leclerc has spoken out about the ending of the Italian Grand Prix after coming second to Red Bull’s Max Verstappen under safety car conditions. Fans were angry to not see Ferrari racing to the end of the race, and while Verstappen likely would have still won, it would have been great to see as much racing as possible.

Leclerc spoke to the press:

“The end was frustrating. I wish we could have ended up racing,” he said sounding disappointed. “Unfortunately we were second at that point because of what happened earlier. It’s a shame. I gave everything.”

This is Verstappen’s first podium at the Temple of Speed, with his lead ahead of Leclerc becoming even larger. Charles was asked if Ferrari could quicken the pace to fill in that gap:

“I don’t know,” he replied simply.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
