Charles Leclerc has established a powerful start to the new season. The Monegasque racing driver won the first race in the Bahrain International Circuit and finished second in Jeddah, indicating that he is now actively immersed in the championship battle. Leclerc emphasises the importance of continuing to improve in order to remain competitive.

For the time being, Leclerc leads the championship, but the Ferrari driver must keep Max Verstappen in mind. If the Red Bull driver did not have to retire his car in the final laps of the race in Bahrain, the two rivals would be relatively close in terms of points.

Ferrari Team Principal Mattia Binotto is confident that Leclerc is fully prepared for the title bout in 2022. The 24-year-old driver is upbeat about the season’s onset, but he wishes to make even more headway. With a victory and a second-place finish in the first two races of the 2022 season, the Ferrari driver is left wanting more.

“We’re still early in the season, but let’s say it’s a good start” : Charles Leclerc

On being asked how the Monegasque driver is going to prepare himself for the rest of the 2022 season of Formula One after two consecutive brilliant races, Leclerc replied, “I want to know what I need to work on to become even better. Whether it will be enough to win the world championship, I have no idea. We’re still early in the season, but let’s say it’s a good start.”

Because the implementation of new cars is predicted to play a significant role in the upcoming season, Leclerc wishes to continue functioning well with his team to get the most out of them. Ferrari’s F1-75 has been nothing short of reliable compared to the other cars on the grid as they have already made some waves this season.

It’s our duty to help the team as best we can to maintain the lead over the competition”, added Leclerc. The 10 teams on the grid will meet again from April 7-10 at Albert Park for the Australian Grand Prix.
