One of the themes of 2022 was Lelcerc and Ferrari going well in qualifying but falling short on race days.
A series of strategic blunders saw Ferrari drop away significantly from the Red Bull, despite early promise with Leclerc winning two of the first three races.
Monaco neatly summed up their problems and Leclerc does not look back on last year's race too fondly.
"I wasn't feeling well," he added. "I was at home. Honestly, I'd done everything perfectly, it was a perfect weekend, I qualified on pole position and in the race we had an incredible pace. So to finish the race in fourth position was ... not easy."
Leclerc finished second in FP2 on Friday afternoon and is hoping to make it a hat-trick of poles at his home race, arguably the most important qualifying session of the year due to the lack of overtaking opportunities on track.
