“F1’s latest title hopeful, Charles Leclerc calls Monaco his birthright“–Paul Ebeling

Born and raised in the paradisal state on the French Riviera, Mr. Leclerc is no stranger to fast cars and professional racing. His young career has also been littered with personal tragedy, as well as run-ins with potential title rival Max Verstappen.

While the racing in this yr’s opening 3 Grands Prix, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Australia and Imola this weekend was hard and clean, Mr. Leclerc out classed Mr. Verstappen.

Charles Leclerc was born to F3 racing driver Herve Leclerc, Charles’ grandfather owned a company manufacturing car parts – now run by his uncle and with revenues of over EUR 1-B in Y 2020. 

Charles’ father would never see him race at the highest level of motorsport, passing from a long illness just before he raced, and won, the F2 showpiece race in Baku in Y 2017.

The death of his father was not Mr. Leclerc’s 1st tragedy in his close family. Jules Bianchi, who died following a crash with a roadside recovery vehicle at the Japanese Grand Prix in 2014, 25 anni, was his Godfather.

Mr. Leclerc came into the lime light on the back of 2 consecutive championships in 2 yrs, first the GP3 Series for ART Grand Prix team and then the F2 title for Italian outfit Prema Racing in Y 2017.

And within 1 season, Mr. Leclerc’s potential shined and he was offered a seat at Ferrari, the most prestigious team in the sport. Ferrari is the biggest brand in F1.

In his 1st season in The Scuderia, Mr. Leclerc achieved a career-high 4th in the drivers’ championship, outperforming team-mate and 4X world champion Sebastian Vettel by 24 pts.

In Y 2020 he finished 8th out-performing Mr. Vettel then in his last season with Ferrari by 65 pts

This yr, Mr. Leclerc sits on Top of the driver’s championship after 3 races.

Ferrari’s long-standing test driver, Marc Gene, said Mr. Leclerc is “like a 2.0 version of himself”. He is a driver reborn this yr, part of the new generation of drivers who stream live to their fans on Twitter, but still able to mix it with high society in Monaco, and always happy it seems. He is difficult to dislike. He was happy with his 2nd place in Saudi because he raced well. It comes from a love of being in the car.

Charles Leclerc is a world champion in waiting. Something any Father and Godfather would be proud of.

Stay tuned…

Have a super F1 racing weekend, Keep the Faith!
