Charles Leclerc 'is a very charming, intelligent kid, but he’s anxious,' says Damon Hill – Sportskeeda

1996 F1 world champion Damon Hill believes that Charles Leclerc‘s anxiety is holding him back when compared to his season rival, Max Verstappen. Despite being ‘charming’ and ‘intelligent,’ as described by Hill, the Monegasque has a tendency to question himself at times.
The Briton claimed that he felt this about Charles Leclerc when the latter once apologized to his team, taking full responsibility for what went wrong. Hill said he would never have imagined the likes of Michael Schumacher to do the same. Reigning world champion Max Verstappen, on the other hand, never seems to have lacked this confidence.
Speaking on the F1 Nation Podcast and comparing Charles Leclerc to the championship leader, Hill said:
Former Ferrari team boss Jean Todt confessed that Charles Leclerc is championship material. However, there is something he lacks that is stopping him from achieving this goal. While the Frenchman did not specify exactly what he believes Leclerc lacks, he admitted that he hopes he is able to fill that void sooner rather than later.
Speaking to Gazzetta dello Sport, Todt said:

The 76-year-old added that he truly believes ‘Ferrari is back to winning’ and that a lot of people support the outfit:
Charles Leclerc has a massive 116-point deficit to Max Verstappen in the drivers’ standings. The Dutchman is in place to potentially secure the championship title this weekend at the upcoming Singapore Grand Prix.
