Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc wrote an emotional tweet after the heartbreak he suffered at the Monaco GP.
At the Monaco GP, Leclerc clinched pole position in qualification, which was a huge result for Ferrari. However, 24 hours later, he was forced to pull out of the race before it even started, owing to a gearbox failure. It was extremely unlucky, and naturally, the driver was extremely upset with the proceedings.
Leclerc took to Twitter to express his pain at what had happened.
He tweeted out, “Sunday still hurts but there’s a lot we can be happy about. After a tough 2020, to be back at the front of the grid and scoring a podium with Carlos is a great reward for everyones (sic) hard work. Monaco I love you and hopefully one day you will love me back. We’ll keep pushing”
Leclerc expressed his happiness with Ferrari’s result at Monaco, as his teammate Carlos Sainz finished P2. It was a huge result for Ferrari to heat up their midfield battle with McLaren. One can only imagine how many more points Ferrari would have sealed had Leclerc started the race on pole.
Ferrari gets injection of life
Ferrari has had a new lease of life this season. It would not be prudent to call them title contenders at this stage. However, that’s a possibility in the future with this level of performance.
The Italian F1 giant has all the tools to give Mercedes and Red Bull a run for the money in the future. They have the drivers (assuming they keep them), they have a good car, and their strategies are getting better. If Ferrari can fend off McLaren this season, they could aim higher when the next one comes around.
McLaren finds itself facing a two-headed Ferrari dragon with only one head. Amidst Daniel Ricciardo’s struggles, Lando Norris is said head fighting against the Prancing Horse.
Ferrari will hope McLaren’s worries continue, allowing them to overwhelm the Woking constructor with their double-edged attack. Both teams need that third place spot, and the fight for it will be exciting to behold.
