The pilot of the Formula 1 Ferrari team Charles Leclerc described as a "great challenge" the signing of the Spanish Carlos Sainz by the Italian team, being a new "very fast" teammate for next year.
« Clearly, he will bother me . I think Carlos will be very fast, "he said this Sunday in an interview with the French newspaper L'Équipe where he predicted a tough rival within his team such as the German Sebastian Vettel.
Leclerc made it clear that he will not be number one for the Italian team and that Sainz, whose signing for next season was made official last week, will prove to Ferrari that he is "a great driver".
«I don't become number one. I think Carlos is a great pilot and he will show it, if it is not already obvious to everyone . It will be a great challenge for me, "he said.
