Austrian Grand Prix: Clouds lift at Ferrari as Charles Leclerc claims statement win

For five races, it was looking like this was just not going to be Leclerc’s year, despite the blistering pace he has been showing in his Ferrari. He had been beaten to pole position by Verstappen, and lost out in the sprint race on Saturday, too. Leclerc and Sainz had allowed Verstappen to get away in the opening laps of the sprint as they fought among themselves. In Canada, where Leclerc started from the back, Sainz was on Verstappen’s tail in the closing laps, but again there were tyre off-sets and safety cars involved. “I think Barcelona was one of those races where we were very strong,” he said. But since those races, yeah, it was the first once where we were quite a bit quicker.
