Charles Leclerc - Bio:

Charles Leclerc started his F1 career with Sauber in 2017, a graduate of Formula 2 and seen as one of the rising starts within the motorsport ranks. 2018 started slowly for the now-Ferrari driver but by the end of the season he was impressing and had caught the eye of the Ferrari squad.

A career best result in Baku saw him come home sixth but it was a run of 7th place finishes towards the end of the season that really showed the talent of Leclerc.

With Kimi Raikkonen leaving to join the newly rebranded Alfa Romeo Racing team it left an open space alongside four time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel for the 2019 season. Rumours had began earlier in the season but by September it was official, Leclerc would join Ferrari.

The young monegasque driver will be up against it in 2019 but everything he’s shown so far indicates he’ll be able to rise to the challenge.
