Leclerc refusing to go down without a fight
Charles Leclerc insists he will "give everything" to get in the points for Ferrari at the German Grand Prix on Sunday.
The Scuderia were expected to enjoy a strong weekend in Germany after posting some impressive times during practice.
However, disaster struck during Q1 when Sebastian Vettel suffered a power problem and he will start Sunday's race from last place.
Leclerc, who was fastest in Q1, failed to finish Q3 due to a fuel issue and will start from 10th in Hockenheim.
Despite a frustrating end to the day, Leclerc is staying upbeat about his chances and insists he will come out fighting on Sunday.
Leclerc posted on his Instagram account: "I feel for the whole team. But the points are scored on a Sunday and I will give absolutely everything to make everyone smile again tomorrow. It is going to be a fun race."
Vettel's wait for a first win on home soil since 2013 looks set to go on but he has echoed Leclerc's optimism about advancing through the field.
"I think the car is great. Lost out on a big chance but hopefully we'll have a big one coming again tomorrow," Vettel said.
"It's very painful here obviously. I was looking forward to having fun. Now we start last, it would have been nice to start first. I think the car has it."
