If any racing driver has ever dreamed of driving for Ferrari in Formula 1®, winning two races in your first season in red would be a good start. It says a lot about Charles Leclerc that he was not totally happy with that.
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 Vettel put him out of the race, with the drivers taken aside to calm down.
But it is impossible to overlook Leclerc’s numbers. Last year he started from pole on seven occasions, more than any other driver, and a repeat of that form could be a telling edge in a tight championship battle.
He finished fourth in the championship.
Leclerc looks every inch good enough to be a World Champion, and that presents a challenge to every team in Formula 1® - including Ferrari.
