“It was a tiring season” – Charles Leclerc is relieved to see the end of the F1 2020 season, and hopes for big things this season with Ferrari.
Charles Leclerc had a decent outing in the 2020 season, especially considering the mediocre season of his team Ferrari. He did considerably better than Sebastian Vettel, who struggled and is now going to race for Aston Martin.

With Covid-19 causing massive problems across the globe, it was extremely tough for drivers to cope with it. This was also the case with Charles Leclerc, who find it extremely mentally challenging. More than the drivers, he believes the mechanics had a tough time dealing with it.
“On my side, physically, surely the race after race you feel a bit tired but already from the Monday I was feeling ready to get in the car again. But I think it’s more mentally where race after race you want to achieve better. You are also under a bit of pressure, too, and so mentally it gets tiring at the end of the season to also spend quite a lot of time away from home.”
“So yes, on my side it’s more mentally than it is difficult. It is maybe more difficult for the mechanics who are coming to the track earlier than we do and leave the track a lot later than we do. So, yes, it was a tiring season.”
