Charles Leclerc has admitted maybe he drives too aggressively having struggled with his tyres at recent races. The Ferrari man was caught whilst leading the Austrian Grand Prix and was beaten to third at the Hungaroring by Sebastian Vettel.

Leclerc has had a mixed start to life at Ferrari but he has been affected by reliability issues in Bahrain, team orders and personal mistakes, crashing out in Monaco and Germany. After crashing out at his home race Leclerc was on a run of four consecutive podiums until he crashed at the Hockenheimring.

Leclerc was beaten to promising results in Austria and Hungary because of his tyres degrading and the Monegasque has admitted he may be too aggressive in his driving style, something he must improve.

“I have to solve something on my side. I have more problems, more relegation than Seb," Leclerc told Motorsport.com.

"I believe that this is also due to the driving style. Maybe I drive a little too aggressively in the races so I have to analyze that and try to improve the coming races.

"I'm pretty sure that Seb is doing a little better than me in that area, so I have to figure it out and improve it."
