He continues to go strong, winning three races in the season so far. After winning in Australia and four podium finishes, Leclerc remained on top of the drivers’ ranking heading into Barcelona. He was 1 step ahead of Red Bull’s Verstappen by 19 points. However, things did not go as the 24-year-old would have hoped during the Spanish weekend. He started strong with a pole position during Saturday’s qualifying.
