“There are improvements coming and I am confident that they will allow us to move in the right direction”
« In terms of development, keeping up with Red Bull will be difficult, but the team that designed this car is the same one that is handling its development this year, so I’m confident. We have no reason to be behind because we did a brilliant job, or rather the guys from Maranello did a brilliant job, in setting up the car for this year. There are improvements coming and I am confident that they will allow us to move in the right direction. Over the past two years, I’ve really seen a leap in the way we analyze weekends, how we also identified our weaknesses and how quickly we reacted to improve where we were struggling. So yes, I’m confident that the team can do a good job with development this year. » told Charles Leclerc in comments reported by Motorsport.
