“Winning is for me not obsession. Okay, to be asked to your team-mate to pass to is frustrating. But I understand it too. Vettel is now in his fifth season at Ferrari, he is a four-time world champion and for me is only the beginning. I continue to work hard. And yes, in some situations, I will him again and won the race, if they ask me.”
We listen to Charles Leclerc during his press conference in Baku, Azerbaijan. The journalists have only one question: dare Ferrari new hint later for the fourth time, back to flutes? In Melbourne it was Leclerc faster than the sukkelende Vettel, but if he had the German not outgrow. In Bahrain, it was Leclerc asked for two rounds to wait before Vettel went to attack, but he immediately caught leather. And especially, in China: in the first round already got the young Monegask the order to Vettel to pass.entourage
do not Believe that Leclerc's position as a bearer accepts. He would be team boss Mattia Binotto have said that he is tired to have to brake for Vettel, strengthened as he feels by his talent. There is also the entourage of Leclerc. His manager is Nicolas Todt, son of Jean, in the Schumacher-years, the big boss of Ferrari and now president of the international autosportfederatie FIA. It opens doors for you.
Someone from the Todt clan would be after the Chinese grand prix, said: "This can not by the bracket. Leclerc is faster and quickly races to win." That someone from the team leader of Ferrari has said that Vettel is mentally fragile and so need support, would not the least impression made on Leclerc and his men.
