MercedesAMG’s Team Boss Toto Wolff sees similarities between Charles Leclerc, 21 anni, and a young Lewis Hamilton, as he expects the new Ferrari (NYSE:RACE) driver to be challenging for the F1 crown this year.
After impressing for Sauber in his debut season on the F1 lineup last year, Mr. Leclerc was signed to replace Kimi Raikkonen and will join forces with Sebastian Vettel at the iconic Italian team in Y 2019.
Mr. Leclerc made an immediate impression during pre-season testing in Barcelona last week, clocking the fastest lap time on the 2nd day after Mr. Vettel had done the same 24 hours earlier.
Ferrari’s new addition has certainly caught the eye of Mr. Wolff, with the MercedesAMG’s team principal drawing comparisons to Mr. Hamilton when the Briton entered the sport over a decade ago.

“He’s like Lewis when he entered Formula One, back in 2007. I have no doubt that he [Leclerc] will be on pace.
