Sunday at Silverstone: It looked like the stars aligned and Ferrari would win on the 70th anni of their 1st F1 victory in Y 1951. But, in the end Charles Leclerc had to settle for 2nd place behind Lewis Hamilton, saying afterwards that he gave “200%” in the fight for 1st.
Mr. Leclerc held onto the lead following the race restart, despite fighting both an engine issue and heavy pressure from Lewis Hamilton, and succumbed with 3 laps to go after the MercedesAMG driver had roared back.
“I am feeling 50% frustration, 50% happiness. Obviously going into this weekend there was absolutely no hope of fighting for a win here at Silverstone. So this shows how great a job we are doing as a team. It’s not an easy situation for the team, but the team is working extremely well.
“We have shown that today with this second place and we’ve got to keep on working because that’s what we want to do consistently, fight for the win.”
