Formula One drivers love the adrenaline; naturally, when the season is off, they look for activities that could give them the same level of excitement. As Leclerc prepares for the upcoming season, he indulged himself in some mountain climbing.

He wrote on his Instagram post, “Slightly different training today.”

However, in the comments section of his post, fans were worried about the number 16 driver. One user wrote, “No Charles you never go the Alps as an F1 driver.”

While another commented, “Don’t injure yourself *Carlos voice*,” One fan commented, “Surprised Ferrari let him do something this dangerous.” A passionate Ferrari fan wrote, “Chill we need the WDC.”

The 2022 Formula One season will see the next generation of F1 cars. The racing community is excited about seeing them zip around the race track next year. Leclerc got to try the 18-inch tries on the 2019 car at the test session in Abu Dhabi and hopes that they can adjust well for next year’s car.

As quoted from PlanetF1, Leclerc said, “It’s quite a bit different. This one is basically adapted to fit those bigger tyres on, but apart from that it’s the 2019 car. So it’s going to be big-time different, but I think we’ll only know once we put the real 2022 car on track and do the correlation from the simulator to reality.”
