Ferrari fell to the worst result in the Constructors’ Championship in 6th place since 1980, but Leclerc often dragged his underpowered Ferrari SF1000 to the top of the midfield, winning two podiums.
Monaco’s drivers finished eighth in the drivers’ championship, 98 to 33 points ahead of four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel.
Leclerc, who extended his contract with Ferrari to 2023 last year, admitted that 2020 was a “difficult season” for the Maranello team, but from a performance standpoint, 2020 is his best. I thought it was a year.
“I think there are two sides to the season for me,” Leclerc said. “I personally think it’s the best season in F1. What I showed on the track is very happy with my season.
“I took the risk and almost always went positive and scored a lot of points. In rare cases, it didn’t go as planned and I lost points.
“But on the other hand, I think the season was very positive for my performance, so I’m very happy. [with]And now, I look forward to seeing how much we will benefit next year. “
Leclerc is proud of how Ferrari has dealt with adversity and hopes the team will learn many valuable lessons from the 2020 disaster that began with the winter test when the SF1000 turned out to be uncompetitive. He said he wanted it.
“I think we all knew something was wrong after the test in Barcelona,” Leclerc added. “During the season, it was very difficult to accept the situation after the first race, but the reality was clear, so I think I worked hard and constructively.
“And I think it improved from that moment. It was a small step, but as I said, it’s a small step in the right direction, which isn’t necessarily given in F1.
“I think we’ve learned a lot from this season now and in the future, and I think we’ll just be stronger. I think we’ll be able to get it on track next year.
“I don’t know how big a step we will take next year, but we are confident that the step we will take will go in the right direction.”
