Watch: Charles Leclerc jokes after being told embarrassing Max Verstappen and Ferrari stat

Charles Leclerc claimed three wins during 2022, whilst title rival Max Verstappen won 15 grand prix.

Ferrari’s wait for title glory has certainly been a long one, with it looking no closer to coming to an end.

The Maranello-based side are without a doubt the most famous team in Formula 1, with the Italians having enjoyed endless success at the pinnacle of motorsport.

To highlight Ferrari’s struggles in the last decade, Leclerc was told during an interview with CANAL+ how many victories the Scuderia have claimed in the last 10 years.

Staggeringly, the interviewer told Leclerc that in the last decade, Ferrari have claimed 23 wins, whilst Verstappen alone has claimed 25 in the last two years.

“Do you know how many Grand Prix Verstappen has won over the last two years?” the interviewer asked Leclerc.

“No, but keep the numbers to yourself,” replied Leclerc whilst laughing.

“25 in two years for him, revealed the interviewer.
