Leclerc thinks Verstappen is more aggressive than Hamilton: 'Always on the limit'.

Charles Leclerc already knows Max Verstappen from karting and fought several duels with Lewis Hamilton in 2019. The Monegasque was therefore asked by The Race Asked about the difference between these drivers.

Leclerc and Verstappen have known each other for longer than a day. The two talents fought a lot of duels in karting, which sometimes resulted in a crash. In Formula 1 they also had a thrilling duel in Austria, with Verstappen as the winner. Leclerc now has to watch his former rival Ferrari take on Hamilton in the battle for the world title in Formula 1.

Aggressive Verstappen

''They have two different styles. Max is a bit more on the aggressive side, Lewis a bit more on the clean side. It’s nice to be fighting with both of them. Lewis is always very, very clever in the way he positions his car to put you in a difficult situation. And he most of the time manages to make the pass in a clean way. Max is a little bit more aggressive,'' said Leclerc.

However, the Monegasque does not mind racing against the Dutchman. ''But I enjoy racing with both, and if anything I quite like fighting with Max because it’s always really on the limit,'' concludes Leclerc, who will not be surprised if Hamilton and Verstappen come into contact again.
