RaceFans Round-up: Joining Vettel at Ferrari felt “intimidating” – Leclerc

In the round-up: Charles Leclerc said an emotional farewell to Sebastian Vettel, who he said he had “really, really enjoyed” having as a team mate despite feeling intimidated at first.

What they say

Speaking alongside his team mate after their last race together in Abu Dhabi, Leclerc said that despite difficulties during their time as team mates (including several on-track clashes) he had been overwhelmed by the warm welcome given to him at Ferrari by four-times world champion Vettel:

Seb knows about what I think about our relationship. Surely, we’ve had our moments, we’ve had very good moments on track, also ones that were less good.

So thank you for being who you are, the way you welcomed me to the team when I arrived. It was not easy having you as a team mate, too. I think you know how intimidating it was sitting next to a four-time world champion when I arrived at Ferrari.

You welcomed me in the best way possible and I really, really enjoyed being your team mate for two years. And I just wish you the best for the future.
