“Tears in his eyes”, Charles Leclerc lets go

Two weeks after his first success in Monaco, Charles Leclerc confided how important this home victory was for him. The Ferrari driver also had difficulty containing his emotions.

It’s the next race for Charles Leclerc. After his victory at the Monaco Grand Prix, the Ferrari driver quickly looked ahead to the next race, this weekend in Canada. But the Monegasque returned once again to this historic success, and very moving for him.

« It was an incredible feeling, I had dreamed of it since I was little, he said about his victory in Monaco. I enjoyed it a lot on Sunday evening, we celebrated with the whole team but on Monday we had to think about the next race. Tuesday I was already at Paul Ricard preparing for the Canadian Grand Prix. But I know that when I retire, I will look back on this victory with enormous pride. It was very moving “.

Leclerc: “A dream that comes true”

Charles Leclerc did not wait for the checkered flag to feel the significance of this victory. During the last minutes of the race, the emotion was already there. “Everything was under control until the last ten laps. I was in total control of the car… but less so of my emotions. This has never happened to me and I don’t think it will happen again. It was so special that I realized I had tears in my eyes with five laps remaining,” he confides.

Leclerc says he received nearly 500 messages after his victory. This is proof that his victory was far from trivial, because the Monegasque wanted to add “his” Grand Prix to his list of achievements, after having often lacked success in this race in recent years. “ Everyone around me was very moved. They know me best and know how much it meant to me. Coming close to victory twice makes this success even more special. They were there during the bad times, it’s a dream come true for the family.”
