Charles Leclerc has received praise from Jean Alesi for his current performance for Ferrari, which includes displaying wonderful perseverance in the midst of suffering. Charles Leclerc lost 95 points to Max Verstappen during the course of the last six races, going from 46 points in front to 49 points behind. In Montreal, he got off to a bad start by accruing engine penalties that sent him to the back of the grid. He succeeded in climbing back up to position five in the race.

The Canadian Grand Prix

While talking about the Canadian GP Alesi showed optimism about the team and the drivers. “From the trip to Montreal, we needed to come back with a higher morale, I think this has happened: positivity and conviction are important to keep pushing with the awareness of being part of a compact and determined group. The work that [Carlos] Sainz, refreshed by the good Canadian test, can continue to do. He has been driving and pulling all the time and he too, I think, needed some reassurance.” said Alesi

Ferrari’s reliability issues

Ferrari have had multiple reliability issues in recent races, with team principal Mattia Binotto urging patience among the Tifosi so that the team can figure out answers to the issues that have plagued them this season, notably in the power unit department. However, Alesi believes that the length of time remaining in the World Championship provides lots of opportunities ahead, and Leclerc must maintain his optimism about his chances.

‘Leclerc has still got time’

“Leclerc is right when he shows beautiful optimism. Such a tight championship puts a strain on gearboxes, engines, hydraulics, everything. Technical troubles have come and will come for every team. We are not even halfway through the championship. There will be plenty of time and opportunities to recover, starting with the next round at Silverstone, a track that exalts champions.” Explained the former Ferrari driver.
