Leclerc's manager is the F1 boss's son who also was also the top man at Ferrari.... Leclerc got a white and black flag that got pulled out of the FIA's ass so he could win in Monza and don't even get me started on Suzuka when the FIA thought it was perfectly ok for Leclerc to ram Verstappen off the road. I mean they watched it and decided no action was necessary, only changing their minds when fans were losing their minds and Max called them out and then decided to give a penalty after the race when the incident happened on lap one!
Leclerc was on the radio like a spoilt kid everytime something didn't go his way last year. I don't agree with this, we will have to talk about this etc etc
Imagine being so spoilt that you want to get the benefit of qualifying second while sitting on pole?
Because that's what Leclerc did in Russia, it is always better to start second there due to the slipstream. How many times have Mercedes been 1/2 and it's been a free race from the start even with the wdc on the line. Whoever gets to the first corner in the lead, gets to keep the lead. Instead Leclerc went to the Ferrari management before the race and said if ye don't get Vettel to agree to stay behind me at the start then I can't guarantee I will move over and give the slipstream to Hamilton. As if that was going to happen. The team should have told him to shove it. I'm glad that Vettel kept the lead after getting a better start than Leclerc. Hearing Leclerc on the radio saying that Vettel needed to give the position back made me so mad and then to see Ferrari actively sabotage Vettel with the pitstop so Leclerc could retake the lead made me sick. Protected?? Leclerc is going to be the most protected driver in the history of the sport
