Charles Leclerc is in third place after Canada 126 points His name in the Drivers’ Championship and ex-Formula 1 driver Jean Alesi believes Leclerc is right not to give up hope as the season is long and things can change at any time.
Jean Alesi believes the 2022 season is only 9 rounds behind and there are still plenty of races to go for Leclerc to close the gap on Max Verstappen.
Ferrari have had some reliability issues this season and this is one of the main reasons for Leclerc’s fall in the Drivers’ Championship. However, Alesi has urged the Monegasque rider to keep doing the right things and the results will follow.
While discussing Leclerc, Alesi said: “Leclerc is right to show optimism. Such a close championship puts pressure on gearboxes, engines, hydraulics, everything. Technical issues will follow for each team.’
Jean Alesi, a former F1 driver, knows the unpredictability of the sport and believes there is still a lot of drama to come in the season so Leclerc and company should not lose faith and keep grinding.

Charles Leclerc and Ferrari have every chance of a comeback
The Maranello-based team have a very fast car this season and Charles Leclerc has been great when it comes to putting his F1-75 on pole in qualifying. Ferrari’s Achilles’ heel was the car’s reliability.
It has handicapped the team significantly and given the team’s situation at both championships, the Italian team cannot afford any more DNFs.
Canada was a strong weekend for Ferrari and Alesi believes: “We’re not even halfway through the championship yet. There is still plenty of time to recover, starting with the next round at Silverstone, a circuit that welcomes champions.”
Alesi has urged the Ferrari team to get back on the pedals with the British Grand Prix just days away and the Frenchman reckons Silverstone would be a good starting point for Charles Leclerc to get back on the winning track and to become great achievements for the team.
