Charles Leclerc is glad to be racing straight away after his retirement last time out at the Belgian Grand Prix.
Leclerc was involved in the horror crash at the first corner on the opening lap and is “looking forward to racing again” this weekend at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.
“It is good to be back on track straight after Spa, as we can move on from the retirement in the last race and look forward to racing again.”
It is the closest to a home race for the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team and Leclerc with his Scuderia Ferrari ties is looking forward to a “special” weekend.
“Monza is going to be a special destination for the whole team as ambassadors of the iconic Italian brand, Alfa Romeo.
“It will be like a home race for us.
“It is also special for me to race in Italy, as I have always had close ties to the country – first racing in karts there during my childhood, and later being part of the Ferrari Driver Academy.
“I can’t wait to be there and meet all the Italian fans.”
It is Leclerc’s first Italian Grand Prix in Formula One and he is looking forward to racing at the famous circuit.
“The track is an iconic one and should be a good challenge – I look forward to racing there.”
