Leclerc after achieving pole: "I hope to do it like in 2019"

One of Ferrari’s plans was to unleash the full potential of its single-seater with the special livery to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the brand’s creation at the Italian Grand Prix, the home race for the Prancing Horse . Since free practice in Monza, those in red, now with a bit of Giallo Modena yellow, were competitive, although Max Verstappen was on the prowl at almost all times.

At the time of getting the best out of the car, qualifying, Charles Leclerc gave his chest to take pole position and allow the tifosi to dream of a second victory for the Monegasque in the ‘Temple of Speed’ after the one he achieved in the 2019 season .

The man from Monaco was helped by the slipstream of his teammate, Carlos Sainz, and set a 1:20.161 that was a tenth and a half faster than Verstappen’s record, who, after applying the penalties, will start fourth in tomorrow’s race.

When he got out of the car, he shared his impressions in English, before later switching to Italian to please the fans present: “In English first, and I’ll finish in Italian as always, but it’s incredible.”

“It wasn’t an easy qualifying session, I knew there was quite a bit of potential in the car, but I didn’t put it all together. I knew on the last lap of Q3 I had to do it and I got it, so I’m really happy with the lap, very happy with the performance”, explained the Ferrari driver.

“It’s been a great weekend so far, the feeling with the car is incredible, and I really hope that tomorrow we can do it like in 2019,” continued the Monegasque driver, who already celebrated a win at Monza with the Prancing Horse team. .

Leclerc was asked about the second sector , where he pushed to the limit to score pole position on the Italian track: “I just took a lot more risks. It was the last lap and I knew I had to find a lot of performance there, and I just went to for it and it worked.”
