Leclerc: It was a positive weekend for us

Ferrari made it three consecutive race victories as Sebastian Vettel won the Singapore Grand Prix and Charles Leclerc finished in 2nd behind his teammate. Leclerc had won the previous two races after the summer break thanks to victories in Belgium and Italy.

As a result, they've closed the massive gap on Mercedes at the top of the standings to 133 points as the grid heads to Russia.

“As a team, it was a positive weekend for us, "Leclerc said.

"Arriving in Singapore, we did not have high expectations, so bringing home a one-two finish is a pleasant surprise and also a sign that all of the hard work done by the team has paid off.

“That said, of course, I am a bit disappointed to finish in second place.

"But I am certain that our race was aimed at maximising our result as a team, which we did, and that is good.

"We know that we have a lot of potentials and will keep working in this direction to do the best job possible at the remaining six races.

Now I look forward to the next one in Russia.”

The race for third in the constructors' standings is hotting up thanks to Ferrari's fine form, Max Verstappen is level with Leclerc, while Vettel is placed a further six points back.
