Charles Leclerc marked himself out as a title protagonist in Formula 1 after a stellar first year with Ferrari in 2019, which included two breakthrough victories.
A promising talent through his junior career, Ferrari’s decision to place him in its team for his sophomore campaign was vindicated by Leclerc outclassing four-time world champion team-mate Sebastian Vettel across most of the year and beating him to fourth in the championship standings.
All of this netted him a five-year contract extension with Ferrari.
Ahead of a 2020 season in which Leclerc is expected to become Ferrari’s outright number one driver, he sat down with Motorsport.com’s F1 Editor Jonathan Noble at Autosport International to discuss the upcoming season, his relationship with Vettel and his new contract.
Afterwards, Leclerc took to the main stage at ASI to answer questions from the fans. You can listen to his grilling at the end of the podcast.
