Charles Leclerc is what Ferrari calls the future. Signing a contract with the team till 2024, he has changed the tables at Ferrari by showing them what he is capable of.

He made his debut in 2018 for the Alfa Romeo-Sauber team. Coming from Monaco, he is only the fourth driver from the principality to make drive in Formula One and the first since Olivier Beretta who made his debut in 1994. Straightaway, he began to impress everyone.

There were a lot of doubts regarding Ferrari’s signing for 2019. Many people suspected he isn’t ready and his much experienced teammate, Sebastian Vettel will chew him alive. But instead he ended up being on top claiming P4 in the championship ahead of the German.

His performance in his debut season prompted Ferrari to sign him for a massive five year extension that will see him till the end of the 2024 season. From $3.5 million in 2019, his salary is now $9 million per annum as per the new contract.

On-track Achievements

Charles Leclerc showcased his class and strength from the junior classes itself winning the 2016 GP3 Series and the 2017 Formula 2 championships. He was personally picked up by Sergio Marchionne before his death.

While in the 2018 season, he finished at best 6th, his performance in the 2019 season blew everyone off. He took away 7 pole positions and 2 race wins, including the highly prestigious Monza, giving the Tifosi something to smile for. He was ready to challenge Sebastian Vettel from the very first day, very eager to dethrone his number 1 status. He did manage to do that, eventually.
