Charles Leclerc is a Monégasque racing driver who currently competes for Scuderia Ferrari. He gained recognition after winning the GP3 Series championship in 2016 and the FIA Formula 2 Championship in 2017.

Leclerc’s debut in Formula One came in 2018 with Sauber, an affiliated team of Ferrari, where he was part of the Ferrari Driver Academy. Despite Sauber finishing last in the previous season, Leclerc’s impact on the team led to Sauber finishing eighth that year in the Constructors’ Championship.

In 2019, Leclerc joined Ferrari and became the second-youngest driver to qualify for pole position in Formula One at the 2019 Bahrain Grand Prix. In the same season, he won his first career race in Belgium and secured the FIA Pole Trophy for most pole positions, a feat he repeated in 2022. Leclerc’s impressive performance earned him the runner-up position in the 2022 World Drivers’ Championship, finishing behind Max Verstappen.

Leclerc has achieved five race wins and 21 pole positions in Formula One as of the 2023 United States Grand Prix. He also achieved a race weekend grand slam during the 2022 Australian Grand Prix.
