Leclerc head held high: Always feels good to be a Ferrari driver.

Charles Leclerc drove a fortnight ago as if the devil was on his heels, but with little success. A great qualifying could not be turned into a good result during the race and with some luck he got points. Still, he stepped out with his head up in a Ferrari overall.

"It always feels good to be a Ferrari driver, especially when the race is a home race. But the performance wasn't what we wanted and it's difficult now. I had a good Saturday, which was great, but on Sunday it was a lot harder.

"I also love the circuit. At first I was sceptical about the number of overtaking manoeuvres during the race, but in fact it went much better, even though the incidents and the red flags were useful of course. In general, however, it was easier than expected to overtake or be overtaken."

So Leclerc is trying to see the situation very positively at the press conference for the Russian Grand Prix. However, it is likely to be difficult for Ferrari again this weekend. The Sochi circuit is traditionally a circuit where Mercedes and teams with Mercedes engines are doing well. Power plays a crucial role in this.
