Why Leclerc won't change approach to Ferrari strategy calls

While Ferrari have often come under scrutiny for their strategy decisions, Charles Leclerc does not plan to become more vocal either in or outside of the car.

Charles Leclerc is not planning to change his approach to voicing his thoughts on Ferrari's strategy calls. The team have often come under scrutiny for various strategy mishaps, with the issue becoming particularly prevalent during the 2022 F1 season. However, when asked on the Beyond The Grid podcast if he feels a need to take more control over such decisions, Leclerc stated his belief that his current approach is the correct one. "I am really vocal within the team of what I want, and this I think is the right approach," the Monegasque explained. "So, this I won't change. I won't be more vocal outside the car because I don't care what people really think. "What I care [about] is that I'm feeling good with myself, doing the absolute best within the team to improve things, and this is my main focus."

Leclerc: We won't win a title if I make decisions on my own

Just as he does not intend becoming more vocal outside of the car, Leclerc also wants to keep this same attitude whilst behind the wheel. Instead the five-time race winner believes that a collaborative approach between himself and the team is the best way forwards. "In terms of being more vocal once I'm in the car and taking more in hand the decision, I don't think this is the way forward," Leclerc continued. "Because people don't understand how little information we have in the car about the whole situation during a race. "I strongly believe that if we get better as a team and, when I say as a team, it's everybody involved. "Speaking about strategy, looking at the strategy, this is when we will be the best all together, that's where we will win the World Championship. "We won't win a World Championship if I am making the decisions on my own in the car, this is not how it works. So, on that, I'm convinced. So I'll keep this approach."
