Leclerc 'never been so tired' after thrilling Monza win
A buoyant Charles Leclerc says he has never been as tired after a Formula 1 race than after the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday in which he emerged victorious in front of the partisan Ferrari supporters.
The Monegasque driver returned from the summer break with a win at the Belgian GP at Spa last weekend - his first ever in F1. He continued that form in Italy as he bravely fought off the attentions of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, who both looked poised to hunt him down at different points.
In the end, Leclerc’s Ferrari powered him to the emotional win in Ferrari’s home race, and he admits the battle has left him weary.
“What a race. I've never been so tired,” he said after claiming the flag.
