Charles Leclerc says he was happy to finish third despite not fighting for the position with anyone throughout the Canadian Grand Prix.

“I am quite happy with my race today, despite it having been a rather lonely one for me,” Leclerc said.

“I think that we couldn’t have got a better result and our performance was strong from the first to the last lap. At the same time, it is a shame for the team to have lost the first win of the season. I look forward to the next race in France now.

“It is difficult to say where we will stand there, as the circuit here in Montreal suits our car very well, but we will work as hard as we can to continue improving and fighting for strong results.”
