Along with Leclerc, there are a few other of his F1 colleagues who stay in the city of Monte Carlo. Such as Lewis Hamilton, Max Verstappen, and Valtteri Bottas.

It is no secret that the 23-year-old has a lavish apartment in the crown jewel of F1. While it is quite a simple house, but a stylish one nevertheless.

The Monegasque racing driver has a sleek kitchen, with a white marble countertop, surrounded by white cabinets alongside a wine fridge. But, the talking point about Leclerc’s house isn’t the awards that he has won in motorsports but is a grand white piano in the living room.

But, the 23-year-old isn’t shy of showcasing his achievement in the world of racing. Hence, Leclerc has a wooden cabinet filled with trophies and helmets. However, whenever Charles isn’t improving on his musical skills, he can be found doing some sim racing in a room dedicated to gaming.

Charles Leclerc once pulled a prank on his girlfriend at his Monaco Apartment

During last year’s lockdown at the time when the F1 season had an uncertainty looming over it, Leclerc turned to sim racing to keep himself occupied, However, the 23-year was focused in-game, that he locked out his girlfriend, but later opened the door to let her in and continued his sim race.

He said, “Ah! My girlfriend! My girlfriend is on Twitch telling me to open the apartment, poor her! Wait a second. So my girlfriend had to subscribe to my Twitch channel to tell me that I had to open the door, so I gained a subscription. I’m so happy.”

He later wrote on Twitter, “Resume of the stream: my girlfriend has had to buy a subscription to my Twitch to ask me in the chat if I could open the door for her. She has waited 25 minutes downstairs and I couldn’t hear the phone because I had my headphones on and was very focused on the rally race.”
