Charles Leclerc is desperate to finally end his unwanted streak of pole positions without an F1 victory at the Las Vegas Grand Prix.
In qualifying for the F1 race in Las Vegas, the Ferrari driver secured his fifth pole position of the season, with teammate Carlos Sainz starting in 12th due to a penalty. Despite having 24 career poles, Leclerc has been unable to convert his last 11 into a race victory. However, he remains optimistic about his chances and hopes to turn his latest pole into a win. He acknowledges the strong competition from Max Verstappen and Red Bull, but believes Ferrari has shown positive signs during practice sessions. Verstappen, who has dominated this season with 17 wins, also has a confident approach to the race and plans to seize opportunities when they arise. Leclerc, although not completely satisfied with his qualifying performance, is happy to be on pole and hopes for better results in the race.
