WATCH: Charles Leclerc on his 2019 Spa win and what he's doing to help Ferrari out of their slump

Share

The 2019 Belgian Grand Prix threw up the most contrasting of emotions for Charles Leclerc: on the one hand, elation at taking his first ever Formula 1 victory, on the other, despair at the death of his friend Anthoine Hubert in the F2 feature race on the Saturday.

One year on from that weekend, Leclerc joined Will Buxton on F1 TV to discuss how difficult it was for him to even get in the car on race day following Hubert's accident, and how the French racer's mother was urging him on before the start.

The Ferrari driver also spoke about the contrast in the team's form, from winning at Spa last year to trailing home out of the points at the same track this season - and explained what he is doing to help get the Scuderia out of the alarming slump they currently find themselves in.
