The relationship is very good. We are very similar in many things, we do some similar things, like chess, golf, even though we haven’t played together yet, because he is better than me.. He is a fun guy, someone who is easy to get along with, “explains Leclerc on the F1 podcast. Beyond the grid.

“The way he works is his greatest strength. He’s a very smart guy and he really knows how to work on a weekend. He’s very good at building it from the first free practice to the race, looking at the important points of the car, ”says Leclerc about Sainz. “He doesn’t look for the lap time until it is necessary, in qualifying. It is always there, it is very consistent”.

With such a good relationship between the two, Leclerc has a hard time choosing between Sainz or Sebastian Vettel as the best partner throughout his sports career. “It is difficult to answer that. Carlos is a very good companion. It would be between Carlos and Seb. Last year was tougher for Seb, but in his good days he was unbelievably and unbelievably difficult to beat, if not impossible. Carlos is very consistent. They are different ways of dealing with it, but they are both very strong”.

However, Leclerc makes it clear that the rivalry and the spats with Sainz are an important incentive. “With Seb the relationship was different. I saw him as an older brother. He had a lot of experience. The one I had with Seb is not the same competition as the one I have with Carlos. With Carlos, more or less, we are the same age, we are very competitive in everything. Seb was less competitive in everything. If I wanted to win at other things, he would let me, he didn’t care. With Carlos it’s different, I can see his anger if I beat him at anything. He may already be the dumbest thing and he will be so pissed off … and the same thing happens to me”.
