Charles Leclerc is what Ferrari calls the future. Signing a contract with the team till 2024, he has certainly turned the tables at the Maranello-based outfit by showing them what he is capable of.

There were a lot of doubts regarding Ferrari's signing for 2019. Many people suspected that he isn't ready and his much-experienced teammate, Sebastian Vettel, will undermine him on a grand scale. However, he ended up coming out on top, claiming P4 in the Championship ahead of the German.

The very next season, despite Ferrari's fallback, Leclerc continued to carry the outfit on his shoulders all by himself. In the process, Leclerc also dominated against his championship-winning teammate for the second straight season, who later quit driving for Ferrari. The Monegasque, however, is facing a stern challenge from his 2021 teammate, Carlos Sainz.
