Charles Leclerc suffered a mental blow last weekend by finishing outside the podium. Nevertheless, the Monegasque seems to be fighting for the world title this season. According to Mattia Binotto, Leclerc is also showing what he is capable of within the team.
While last season Lewis Hamilton fought alongside Max Verstappen for the world title, this season it’s Leclerc’s turn to do battle with the Dutchman. Leclerc has won the weekend twice so far, while Verstappen has won as many races this year.
