Leclerc will use the number 16 in Formula 1. Based on his birthday (16 October 1997) and this number is close to 17. He considered asking the Bianchi family for 17 but decided against it because he wanted it to remain Jules’ number. Also he said that he likes the number seven and 1 + 6 = 7.
I hope he is as talented as junior formulas suggest. Would be a real shame if he turned out to be wasted seat. Ideally, he'll be in a Ferrari come 2019.
In Vasseur we trust here in France when it comes to manage new talent. We doubt more when it comes to Boullier and Abiteboul. Vasseur 2019/2020 team principale of Scuderia Ferrari in replacement of Arrivabene if he cant bring the driver championship title to Maranello next year ? Sound good to be honest. If he does a fantastic job with Sauber, why not.
Horrible car. Yikes. With having a 2018 PU, I'm sure they'll leapfrog Haas and Toro Rosso with Leclerc.
GP3 and Formula 2 cars you drive with a lot of oversteer and this is the way to go fast. I did not expect to go quicker when going towards an understeer set-up in F1, but this seems the way these cars work. I just need to get on with it.
I improved a lot because of the approach we had with the set-up. We went to a more understeering car for me. My car was way too unpredictable and was very difficult to put everything together. We targeted a more understeering balance and it has been night and day [different] for me.
