Charles Leclerc thanks Sebastian Vettel for his teamwork at Ferrari

Charles Leclerc won his first Formula 1 race last weekend at the F1 2019 Belgian Grand Prix but has said that he couldn't have done it without the "teamwork" of Sebastian Vettel. The Italian team will be hoping for another victory at their home race this weekend at the Italian Grand Prix. 

“It was a difficult weekend, all the more after the events on Saturday. We knew it would not be easy with the pace of Mercedes. Eventually, it coincided through good teamwork between me and Sebastian, who contributed smooth cooperation to the result," Leclerc said

"It takes a certain amount of pressure off your shoulders when you win the victory, but we have to stay focused on the next task: to perform as well as possible this weekend,"  Leclerc concluded. 

It will be interesting to see how Ferrari manage their two drivers at Monza and if Vettel will be happy to be a team player in a Leclerc victory or if the German manages to bounce back and get a race win of his own.
