Lewis Hamilton warned by Leclerc he’s out to win when F1 returns after practising on simulator for FIVE hours a day – The Sun

CHARLES LECLERC warned Lewis Hamilton he will be taking more risks to win the title once Formula One finally hits the track.

Six-time champ Hamilton — who blasted the Ferrari star as “dangerous” at last year’s Italian GP — yesterday posted a video of himself running outside for the first time in weeks.

But Leclerc has been busy driving flat out, racing on his home simulator for five hours a day and winning four major esports races in a row.

The Monaco-born driver, 22, said: “I hope it will still be a fair World Championship — even with fewer races — and if it is me who wins, I will be very happy.

“But I am pretty sure Mercedes and Lewis will still be the favourites.

“But I will risk more on track with risky strategies and risky overtakes — and maybe it will pay off.”
