The Good Place actor was invited to Austin for the US Grand Prix by Ricciardo. Bell revealed that she is a fan of the Netflix show, and found Ferrari’s Leclerc to be her new crush.

Talking on Ellen, she said, “I mean I did watch Drive to Survive which got me into Formula One. I don’t sit down and watch the entire race, but Danny had gotten us tickets to come to the grid.”

And, after watching DTS, there are some visually stimulating people on that show. Well yeah so there is another driver, I mean I adore Danny but there is a driver that’s just got a face, it’s Charles Leclerc.”

“We were with the people that were touring us around,” just then the audience cheered as they saw a photo of Leclerc which made Bell say with excitement, “Right!?”

“They say, “Is there anything else you want to see?” We are watching them pour dry ice into the cars before they go. I was like this all looks great, you guys should go for it.”

“I say, I just want to get a visual on Leclerc, see what’s happening over there. And I walk over, and I whisper to Dax, “Hey you don’t have a piece of paper with my phone number on it, do you?” She concluded.

Unfortunately, Leclerc didn’t get to move up the pecking order and had to settle for the same position that he started in. However, the Ferrari driver is content with himself as he managed to pick twelve points from the race at the Circuits of the Americas.
