Leclerc Targets Victory in Miami by Putting Pressure on “Unhappy” Verstappen



Charles Leclerc Reveals Strategy to Overcome "Displeased" Max Verstappen in Miami

Charles Leclerc has shared his approach to potentially outperform Max Verstappen in Miami.

Charles Leclerc aims to challenge Max Verstappen in the upcoming Miami Grand Prix, following Verstappen's concerns about his F1 vehicle's performance issues.

Leclerc is set to begin from the front row of the grid next to the Red Bull driver once more.

The driver from Monaco crossed the finish line slightly more than three seconds after Verstappen in the brief sprint race held on Saturday morning.

Verstappen is dissatisfied with how his RB20 performed in Miami, prompting Leclerc to set his sights on the current world champion.

"He's quite powerful. Today, we were together, and he expressed dissatisfaction with the car. It'll be interesting to see his attitude towards the car tomorrow."

"Hopefully, he remains discontent and we apply pressure on him."

"This morning, we made some progress, and so did they. If we manage to activate the DRS following the initial lap, I believe there's a chance we could keep up with him."

Leclerc thinks maintaining a close enough distance to Verstappen to activate the Drag Reduction System (DRS) is essential for a shot at overtaking him for the win.

Leclerc also mentioned, "Indeed, this along with maintaining the DRS, should we not manage to overtake by the first turn," he clarified.

DRS has a significant advantage in this context, and losing it beyond the initial lap complicates any attempt to regain its benefits. It's crucial we maintain DRS access.

"Initially, the beginning will take place. This morning">kicked off positively, and I aim to achieve an even more successful start tomorrow."

Following a period of underperformance in 2024, Leclerc seemed to have returned to his top form during the Miami race.

He secured the second position in both qualifying rounds, despite losing most of the first free practice session due to an awkward spin.

Leclerc was satisfied with his comeback, despite the difficult track conditions in Miami posing challenges for the drivers.

"I'm pleased. The weekend didn't">kick off as smoothly as hoped," he recounted. "As mentioned, a minor error had significant repercussions during that initial free practice session, and managing only one lap wasn't optimal. However, the remainder of the weekend turned out well. That's a positive. Today was a good day.

"This morning we were in second place, and again this afternoon, we found ourselves in the same position. The conditions were challenging, not just for our team but for everyone participating. Navigating the second sector proved to be particularly tough, with the grip going into Turn 11 being unpredictable. This uncertainty made it quite hard to execute a flawless lap."
