Leclerc: I feel that something is still missing right now

As Charles Leclerc chases his and Ferrari's first win of the season, the Monegasque has admitted he still feels something is missing but insisted the team are working are to resolve it to get back to where they should be.

Luck has not been on Ferrari's side this season, a short circuit denied Leclerc a maiden victory at the Bahrain Grand Prix before a controversial five-second penalty cost Sebastian Vettel a first win of the season in Canada. Leclerc looked on course for a first win, before a stunning Max Verstappen fightback denied him at the Austrian Grand Prix last weekend.

After Verstappen stormed to the win at the Red Bull Ring, Ferrari are the only top three team without a win this season and Leclerc feels something is still missing.

"I knew coming to Ferrari meant having to win, I feel that something is still missing right now," Leclerc said as quoted by Formula Passion.

"Sometimes we have difficulties as a team, but we are trying to understand what is wrong and solve it."

Leclerc also gave an insight into his mindset and preparations and revealed other people's opinions don't come into it.

“My approach consists in giving the best I can in the car, I don't think about what others say or expect.

"I focus on work and, if everything goes well and I'll do things right, the results will come. I'm quite convinced of it, the pressure does not affect, I do not feel it," added Leclerc.
