BrusselSebastian Vettel already has three races teamorders to his new teammate Charles Leclerc in check. That did the young wolf not to shine. Many believe that the Leclerc and not Vettel the next world champion for Ferrari. Who are trail nd, understand why.

June 24, 2017. In the streets of Baku state Charles Leclerc on pole for the first of two Formula 2 races. For the fourth time already that season – nothing schokwekkends, so. However, the fact that the young racepiloot four days earlier, his 54-year-old father had lost to a long illness. The oldest of the sons Leclerc is doing in Azerbaijan to his father to honor. Poleposition and earnings in the first race, podium in the second. Like it is nothing.

“I wanted to win’, said Leclerc afterwards. What silently, but without great emotions. “To my father to honor. The last thing he had wanted to, is that I am here in each other would collapse and my races would just mess it up.’

At that moment it was Leclerc certainly not aware of it, but that weekend he won his place in F1. Maurizio Arrivabene, as team boss at Ferrari, was truly impressed by the attitude of the young Monegask. “The rider who is in that circumstances in a way of command can discharge, which features unique talents’, gave the Italian.

Help from above

Of course I had Leclerc previously also beautiful things to show. Also because he got help from a rising star of Formula 1. Jules Bianchi was the dooppeter of Charles, though he was barely eight years older. When the 13-year-old Charles was ready to take global go karting, did Bianchi in a good word with his manager, Nicolas Todt. Who had mid-2015 trust enough to his pupil to Maurizio Arrivabene. As a result, Leclerc was in 2016 included in the Ferrari Driver Academy. As the successor of Bianchi, who after his fatal accident in Suzuka 2014 if experience.

‘Charles is in a few years profoundly changed’, says Nicolas Todt now. “When I first met him, he was a rather timid boy. That improved, also through the difficult period after the death of Jules. What Charles the past few years has to go through, has shaped him into the man he is today. I admit that I occasionally struggle to understand how he has processed.’

Still got Charles Leclerc not through the big gate, the Formula 1. His first races of 2018, at Sauber, were nothing special. But less than a year after that impressive weekend in the F2 made Leclerc of the street race in Baku to use for the first time its full potential to show. With a car that is normally seen only with a bit of luck in the points could finish, tapped Leclerc as the sixth. The red carpet towards Ferrari was to be rolled out.

‘Actually, it was this seat for Jules reserved, everyone knows that’, said Leclerc earlier this season. “It was his dream to Ferrari to become a world champion. My father wished the same for me. And that is my ultimate goal. With every good performance I think of them. And I am sure that they gave me above also attracted.’
