The words of Charles Leclerc after the pole position in Monte Carlo

Charles Leclerc hit pole position in the Monaco Grand Prix, the third of his career at the Monte Carlo circuit. "It's been nice,” said the Monegasque, in the words reported by The feelings after a qualifying lap are always very special here. I am very happy with my lap. However, I know even more after the past that qualifying is not everything, as much as it helps, sure".

"It&#39s as good as the first time here in Monaco,” added the Ferrari driver. “You feel the tension before you go up and it&#39s much higher than anywhere else. When you finish the lap and you know you are on pole è special. In the past, the emotions stay with me longer, but now after seeing 2 victories fade away after two poles, I am more cautious and I know we have to finish the job tomorrow".

"Qualifying was complicated – he later explained -. In Q1 I caught a piece of a sponsor’s banner and it slowed me down. When I came back to the pits we took it off but è it was complex, I hoped there were no flags. In Q2 I struggled with the balance of the car. In Q3 I modified something on the front wing and on my driving and everything è went better".

"You have to put everything together on Sunday. In the past we have not been able to do that, but now we are a stronger team, we are in a stronger position and I am sure we can do great things tomorrow. The goal è victory. I need to get off to a good start and once we do that I hope Carlos can get off to a great start as well. If he does, then we could be in first and second position, thus being able to better manage the race as a team. That would be the perfect scenario. Whatever happens; we will have to bring the victory home" Leclerc commented.
