Montezemolo: Leclerc is one of the best of his generation

Former Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo says that Charles Leclerc is "one of the best" on the grid right now, but also adds that he would not stand for the kind of complaining over the radio over the last two races.

Leclerc has been frustrated in the last two races, having trailed teammate Sebastian Vettel in both and has been vocal over the radio in expressing his disappointment.

Di Montezemolo, who was Ferrari president during their dominant period in the early 2000s, told Corriere dello Sport: “If Leclerc had complained like that to me, then he would have heard more than a few words in my office..

“I can remember a situation with Rubens Barrichello when he was upset about making room for Schumacher in Austria,” Montezemolo continued. “I told him: You will do what we ask you to do and that’s it, but I can say to Leclerc is that he is one of the best of his generation.”
