Charles Leclerc was asked which driver he ‘trusts’ more when racing them, Lewis Hamilton or Max Verstappen. He didn’t hesitate when giving an answer.

“If I want to be sure to finish the race, probably Lewis,” said Leclerc.

“But for the fun and the close racing probably Max, because I know it’s always exciting to be fighting with Max.

“There’s very little space given but I think that’s what we all enjoy with the sport. Sometimes it’s a bit over the limit, sometimes it’s just on the limit, but I enjoy racing it in reality.

“Lewis is a bit of a different driving [style]. He’s extremely clever and I learn always so much when I fight with Lewis.

“He always knows exactly what you are going to do next with his experience, and that’s what makes him so good on track with the battles.

“He’s not very aggressive, always very correct, but always very good to anticipate what you are going to do,” concluded the Monégasque.
