The paradox of three positions gained in a race never actually held. Just two laps behind the Safety Car, after more than hours of waiting. The minimum necessary to be able to assign world championship points, obviously halved compared to normal.
Leclerc, interviewed by Sky Sport F1 at the end of the day, he tried to dampen the controversy, told about his chess Sunday. “I was busy playing chess with Carlos – revealed the Monegasque – I won, at least that today”.

Then, in the second part, we tried to restart and the regulation that exists led us to get points. I think it was right to try again, but it is certainly very strange to have points for a race that has never started. In the end, the decision to try again was the right one. Two points? They are worth little. But it is the decision to try again that led to points today“, The thought of # 16.
