Charles Leclerc has pinpointed an improvement in qualifying as he looks to get back on track at the French Grand Prix. Leclerc has only qualified ahead of Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel once so far in 2019, when he took pole position at the Bahrain GP.
Sakhir is also the only race in which Leclerc has finished ahead of Vettel and the Monegasque is fifth in the drivers' championship, behind Red Bull's Max Verstappen.

"In qualifying, I did some mistakes," Leclerc said of the Canada weekend. "To put everything together in qualifying is my main target at the moment.
