"I asked if they were sure about it," Leclerc said. "They told me," we think we are. "I said" shouldn't we go out again? "But yes, there was no real answer. I think they thought we would go … I don't know. No explanations yet detailed. Very difficult to take.
"In fact, we had plenty of time even when we went out of the box to go out again. The wall bridge was not the problem. We still had the fuel to go again and change only the tires. None of this was a problem. I need some explanations. "
It is very difficult to adhere to Leclerc starting from the 16th on a circuit and recognizing that he will have to take a number of risks and hopes for help from the weather to save a good result on Sunday.
"Hopefully it will rain, and then there will be a little lottery in there. If it is dry, it will be boring. I have to take many risks, I think, even risk colliding. In the end, all we have to do now is try to be extreme in our assault, because it is a track where basically it is impossible to overcome, so we will see. "
