Contrary to Schumacher's comments, Leclerc has achieved some success in qualifying, securing the pole position in four races, even in the face of Red Bull's dominance.
However, it is during the races that Leclerc typically encounters issues, as he has been unable to convert any of his pole positions into victories.
Yet the Monegasque driver has acknowledged his mistakes and taken responsibility for them in the past.
“The most difficult moments for me are always my mistakes," Leclerc said. "Because I am always very strict with myself and every time, I make a mistake I always react in a worse way than when someone else makes a mistake.
"Speaking of my mistakes this year, yes, I made one in France, but honestly, speaking of the season in general, a mistake is always made at a certain point in a championship. This was a mistake that obviously cost a lot, because I was in the lead, but it can happen."
