Scuderia Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc shared an incredible moment with former England international and Manchester United player David Beckham. Before the start of the Miami Grand Prix, the duo were seen playing football in the Ferrari paddock around a few chairs. Unfortunately Leclerc lost his pole position to RedBull’s Max Verstappen and finished the race in second place.

After the race, Leclerc expressed his dissatisfaction with the result and said, “Yeah, I am disappointed. I think we are very strong in terms of tyre warm-ups, so at the beginning of every race we are strong and also after the safety car restart on the hard we were very strong.”
“But after four-five laps they (Red Bull) seem to stabilise the tyre in a better window, and there they are just quicker than us so then its very difficult for us to do anything. But yeah its like this and we need to work on that. Its pretty clear what’s going on and hopefully we will get better at it as quickly as possible,” he added.
It’s time to leave the incredible #MiamiGP atmosphere 🌴

During the weekend, Sky Sports talked to David Beckham where he talked about the struggles of his former club Manchester United. “I think there are changes to be made and changes that are happening, we’ve seen that,” Beckham said.
“It’s been a tough end to the season. But it is the end of the season, I’m sure a lot of the fans are thankful of that because it’s been a tough one – full of ups and downs. The players have done what they can do best, so has the manager,” he continued.
“I turned up at the stadium a few months back and every seat was filled so the fans still believe, they support, they turn up for the team. It’s what United fans do. There’s not many teams to have gone through what they’ve gone through in the last few years and still filling out their stadium. There will be changes.”
