Who is Charles Leclerc?

If you’re an avid watcher of Formula One, you’ve no doubt heard the name Charles Leclerc. Born in 1997 in Monte Carlo, Monaco, Leclerc continues to bring incredible knowledge and unmatched driving ability to the globe as well as the world of F1 racing. But whether he’s on or off the track, he awes those around him everywhere he goes. Not only because of his innate talent and quick thinking but also because of his good-natured character that keeps him grounded in all that he does.

Destined for Formula 1: Leclerc’s Life Path

Now a lead driver of Scuderia Ferrari, Charles Leclerc is living out the professional racing dream that he seems to have been working up to since his early years. All starting in 2005 when he embarked on his karting career. It was in 2009 when he won his first championship becoming the youngest French Cadet champion. This momentous win quickly snowballed into another win in 2010 in the KF3 class of the Junior Monaco Kart cup.

Needless to say, many more wins followed as Leclerc worked his way up and out of the karting world and into the big leagues. From multiple podiums and victories at Formula Renault to a first race victory at Formula Three in 2015, and then onto three victories in the 2016 GP3 season, there’s no question that Charles Leclerc was destined for a life on the track.

Ferrari and Formula 1: The Goal of Greatness

No matter if Leclerc is behind the wheel or outside the car, you’ll find he has a strong mind and heart, spurred by memories of his late father and the eternal motivation of his friend and mentor, Jules Bianchi who was an F1 driver that sadly passed in 2015. It’s these influential figures in his life that keep him devoted to his craft and working hard to make them proud. And he hasn’t failed in that yet.
