Charles Leclerc, 3rd in the Japanese GP: “I really struggled with these tires”

Charles Leclerc (Ferrari, 3rd in the Japanese GP): “From the 5th lap, it was worse and worse, I really struggled with these tyres. It was a bit like the last race (Singapore) where we could heat our tires well but, after 3-4 laps, they were destroyed. Congratulations to Max (Verstappen) for his second world title. We will continue to push until the end of the season, it is obviously very frustrating today. The pace was gone after 4 laps, but that’s how it was. The goal is to be champion in 2023. Max’s title was only a matter of time this season. We expected him to be champion, now we have to use these last races to improve. I hope that we will offer him a good battle next year. »
