Scuderia Ferrari Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc admitted that he likes his alone time ahead of Formula One races. In the heat of Austria and France, the Ferrari driver was on the grid early. The man from Monaco explains why he likes isolation minutes before the lights go out in an interview for German newspaper Bild.
“Every athlete wants to isolate himself completely just before a top performance. Compare it with entering a tunnel: Only you and what is right in front of you. For every race, but also for every qualification or free practice, I separate myself and try to get into the mood that I need. The only thing that I think about are things that are important for the car. In the case of training that is: What exactly am I going to practice and how do I approach that” – Chares Leclerc explained, as reported by the German media earlier today.
Moments before a race, the grid is busy with the crew, media and celebrities. Engines and mechanical parts are fired up and it looks like a challenge to get the isolation he needs. But Charles Leclerc says it’s easy.
“Simple: My eyes are open, but I don’t see anything at that moment. I can turn everything else off. For that reason it doesn’t bother me at all” – Scuderia Ferrari Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc concluded.
