Leclerc admits Paul is ‘good’
Charles Leclerc is pinching himself after sacking Paul at the Bahrain GP.
“I feel good. The last two years have been difficult for the team. We hoped this would be an opportunity to take the lead again.”
“We worked very well as a team to find us in a position to fight for a better place. We are very pleased with today. It was a very demanding qualifier session. We were not satisfied with the drive but we were able to do that lap in the third quarter. ..
“From the driving point, it was completely different from last year, so we tried different driving styles. There is so much more you can get from us.
“It feels really good. We were sure the Red Bull was going to be faster than us. Now it’s time to finish the weekend at the highest level. It won’t be easy.
“We have to focus and we hope we can have a good race tomorrow. The race is long and anything can happen, so we have to keep going.”
