Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc prepared to do whatever it takes to win the F1 title this year, as he wants to challenge Lewis Hamilton.
Last year, Hamilton secured 11 Grand Prix wins in a stunning charge to a sixth title.
Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas was Hamilton’s closest rival, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen a distant third in the World Drivers’ Championship standings.
Leclerc, meanwhile, ended the year fourth in the pile.
The Monegasque says he’s prepared to put everything on the line in order to knock Hamilton off the throne.
“I hope it will still be a fair World Championship – even with fewer races – and if it is me who wins, I will be very happy,” Leclerc told The Sun.
“But I am pretty sure Mercedes and Lewis will still be the favourites. But I will risk more on track with risky strategies and risky overtakes – and maybe it will pay off.”
