Silver Arrow team secured their sixth one-two finish of the season at the French GP.

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc nearly spoiled their party at the end of the racing, pushing hard Bottas in the final lap to steal the second place.

Leclerc: “I gave everything at the end”

“The second stint was all about the tyre management, but we did very good job at the end I was catching Valtteri”.

“He struggled to turn his tyre on again after VSC so I saw an opportunity to attack him but it wasn’t enough”.

“Seeing where we were on Friday after the race simulations, I think it was a great day for us”.

“We brought some parts this weekend, some were good but some others not and Mercedes are better now, we need to work hard to catch them up”. added Leclerc.
