  • Leclerc is playing down expectations for the 2021 season
  • Leclerc has had some strong results, the Ferrari team have not won a race
  • 2021 will be better than 2020 thanks to a new power unit.

Ferrari's F1 star driver Charles Leclerc has painted a morbid outlook for the famous Italian team which is going through arguably its worst season in the last two decades. Leclerc has been the ray of hope for Ferrari in 2020 with three podiums and strong performances throughout the season in an uncompetitive Ferrari while his 4-time world champion teammate Sebastian Vettel has gone off the boil in his last season at the team. 

Leclerc believes with limited changes in the regulations, it will be hard for Ferrari to race for wins and challenge the dominance of the Mercedes.

I think it will be difficult to fight for the title next year," he told Sky Sports."I hope in the shortest period possible I can help the team reach our goals which is to fight for the championship again, but realistically, next year I don't think we'll be fighting for the title yet. I do believe we'll take a step forward, which is the most important thing," he added. 


"We need to focus on ourselves, no miracles happen in Formula 1. Mercedes has had huge success in the past years and this year, and I'm sure that they will be very quick next year too. Now, it's our job to catch up," he notes highlighting that its rivals will not be standing still even if it makes progress.

After three years where the Scuderia were a threat to the Mercedes, 2020 marks a massive regression 

Ferrari chief Mattia Binotto has said that the team will introduce an all-new power unit for the 2021 and 2022 seasons but the limitation of the aerodynamic development will limit the team's progress as it sits on a flawed concept which is further held back by a weak power unit.
