Charles Leclerc explains why there are no incidents between him and Max Verstappen this year, compared to the situation with Lewis Hamilton in 2021.

Back in 2021 Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen have been involved in a fierce battle for the championship, which often involved dangerous on-track encounters, and numerous collisions.

This year, however, there are almost no incident between Verstappen and his main title rival Charles Leclerc.

The Monegasque driver explains why there are less incidents this year and what might change that.

“It depends on the situation, on the person you’re facing, your opponent. How far is he willing to go?” Leclerc explained to BBC.

“This year, either I had a big advantage in the championship and then you are not really willing to take those risks.

“Or he had a big advantage in the championship and he is not really willing to risk. Or I am not really willing to risk because I need to catch up points.

“So, I feel like the championship of last year was probably much more prone to see these type of things because it was so close until the very end.

“I would have expected us to be much more like this if the championship will be extremely close towards the end.

“[If the championship is] not finished [by then], then we might see that at the end of the year,” Leclerc concluded.
