- Ferrari driver has never finished a race in Monte Carlo
- He sits six points behind championship leader Max Verstappen
Charles Leclerc insists he feels no pressure at his home grand prix in Monte Carlo despite the streak of poor fortune that has plagued his performances here. The Ferrari driver believes this is the year he can see off his Monaco curse, a meeting where he has yet to make the finish line.
Leclerc is also aware that victory would help recover some of the momentum he has lost in a fierce title fight with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen. The 24-year-old, who was born and grew up in the principality, was relaxed speaking before Sunday’s race, despite carrying the expectations of delivering a win in front of a home crowd.
