Leclerc: Ferrari upgrade secured Singapore pole

Leclerc: Ferrari upgrade secured Singapore pole

Charles Leclerc believes his acquisition of pole position for the Singapore Grand Prix is due to the car upgrades on his Ferrari which the team have introduced this weekend.

The Scuderia have started superbly since the summer break, with Leclerc winning at both Spa and Monza. Singapore was predicted to be a step back as the track allegedly doesn’t meet their strengths.

However, Leclerc ended up taking pole ahead of Lewis Hamilton after suffering through some poor laps in practice on Friday.

“We brought some new bits which worked properly. It's not always the case, but it was this weekend,” he said after qualifying on Saturday.

“I had a very tough Friday, I didn't feel comfortable in the car. But, I worked hard and today it paid off.”

After besting Hamilton and team-mate Sebastian Vettel to P1, Leclerc thanked his team for the implementation of the upgrade.

“I'm extremely happy about today,” he beamed.
