'Prize' for mistake Leclerc in Turkey
So none of these drivers went home with a trophy, but Leclerc got a prize for his race: The Golden Tapir. This is a trophy that the satirical news program Striscia la Notizie awards to someone who was working on something exceptional, but then made a mistake that throws a spanner in the works.
The prize was awarded in Maranello to Leclerc, who received it sportingly. He was also not too moved to explain his actions again. "The race went well, but I threw everything away in the last corner. I made a mistake and reacted via the radio, everything could be heard."
"These things happen, but it's a learning moment and a starting point to grow and come back stronger," said Leclerc.
