The 2016 world champion points out Leclerc’s weakness

Nico Rosberg had his say on the drivers who most impressed him last season, in his interview with ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’. The 2016 world champion with Mercedes certainly did not have honeyed words for Ferrari’s Monegasque Charles Leclerc, who finished the championship in second place with three wins on the season.

“Who surprised me, besides Verstappen? Russell, for sure, and also Norris, in a way. And Leclerc, but only in qualifying, in the race not so much,” said the former Mercedes and Williams driver, limiting his compliments for the Prancing Horse bearer only to qualifying.

Charles Leclerc is the third driver from the Principality to have competed in the Formula 1 World Championship after Louis Chiron and Olivier Beretta, as well as the youngest ever to win a Grand Prix driving a Ferrari single-seater. In 2019, he made his debut with the Rossa, taking Kimi Raikkonen’s place, and in March he scored his first career pole position, in Bahrain. His first success with the Prancing Horse came at the Spa circuit in Belgium on September 1, 2019.
