It says a lot about Charles Leclerc that he was not totally happy with that in 2019.
There should have been at least two more wins, but mechanical problems and strategy issues cost him those. Then in Brazil a clash with teammate Sebastian Vettel put him out of the race, with the drivers taken aside to calm down.
But it is impossible to overlook Leclerc’s numbers. He started from pole on seven occasions in 2019, more than any other driver, and a repeat of that form could be a telling edge in a tight championship battle.
Leclerc looks every inch good enough to be a World Champion, and that presents a challenge to every team in Formula 1® – including Ferrari.
