Heartbroken Leclerc Didn’t Know He’d Left His Radio On When Screaming After Crash

Well, that was painful. Charles Leclerc suffered another massive loss at the French Grand Prix, crashing out of the lead and handing Max Verstappen another 25-point victory. 

The Monegasque driver has been Verstappen’s closest rival this year, but key mistakes have cost him. 

Speaking to media, including The Race, Leclerc said, “I mean, I feel like I’m performing at the highest level of my career since the beginning of the season, but there is no point of performing at that very high level if I then make those mistakes.” 

Leclerc had initially thought a mechanical issue had caused the crash but soon took full responsibility, screaming down the team radio – which he didn’t know was on 😬

“32 points overall, 25 today. I think it was likely that we were going to win this race because we were fast, and seven [points] in Imola because of my mistake.

“So if at the end of the year we countback and it’s 32 points missing, then I know it’s coming from me and that I did not to deserve to win the championship. For the second half of the season, I need to get on top of this if I want to be world champion,” he added. Ooft. That cuts deep. 

Heartbreaking loss for Leclerc. Do you think he can still become world champion this year?

    I see a Vettel 2.0. Since the pressure to preform for Ferrari is insane.
    They make mistakes but when they don’t the driver cracks under the pressure.

    I honestly think radios should be on in those moments, would make us viewers feel what drivers do. It still gets edited before being played, so if it would be bad they just wouldn’t play it.
