While battling Sergio Perez for P2 on the last lap, he locked up into the final complex of corners after just overtaking the Mexican and ran wide, dropping him down to fourth.

As he crossed the line, his race engineer congratulated him on his strong drive, but Leclerc was evidently unhappy with the result.

“No, I did a s*** job, I did a s*** job. I did a s*** job, I did a s*** job,” Leclerc said.

Continuing, he said: “I did a f****** s*** job” before being urged by a member of the team to calm down in Italian.

He then apologised to the team for failing to capitalise on the circumstances and snatch P2 from Perez.

“I am f****** stupid,” he added.
