Leclerc says Sainz is a closer teammate than Vettel

Charles Leclerc says he is forging a closer relationship at Ferrari with Carlos Sainz than he did with his former teammate Sebastian Vettel. Spaniard Sainz, 26, moved from McLaren for 2021 to replace the ousted quadruple world champion Vettel, who is now struggling to get up to speed at Aston Martin. As for Leclerc, he sounds happy now that Vettel has been replaced by Sainz. I think it’s always good for a team to have two drivers pushing to get back to victory. “I spend more time with him than I did with Vettel,” Leclerc revealed. But now with Carlos we are often together on the same days and consequently we spend more time together,” he added.
