The marriage between Ferrari and Charles Leclerc continues. The Maranello team announces it who will continue to compete for the Italian team also in the next seasons (without specifying how many) of the Formula 1 world championship. «I believe that the best is yet to come – comments the Monegasque driver – and I can’t wait to start this season to try to make the team progress further and put us in a position to be competitive at every race. My dream remains to win the title with Ferrari and I’m sure we will be able to get some great satisfaction and give the fans something to rejoice about.”

«Charles’ bond with the Scuderia – states Ferrari team principal Fred Vasseur – goes beyond that of a driver with his team: Leclerc has been part of the Ferrari family for eight years now, since before he wore the tracksuit with the Prancing Horse . The DNA of our company as well as his values ​​are part of him and it was therefore natural to agree on the renewal of our collaboration. We know his incessant desire to overcome his limits and we appreciate his great ability to duel and overtake in races. We are determined to give Charles a winning car and I know that his decision and his commitment will be elements that can make the difference for the goals we want to achieve.”
And Charles Leclerc himself adds: «I am very happy to continue wearing the Scuderia Ferrari suit in the coming seasons. Competing for this team has been my dream since I was three years old: I saw the Monaco Grand Prix from the window of a friend’s house and at the Ste curve.
I devotedly looked for the red car. This team is my second family, ever since I joined the Ferrari Driver Academy in 2016 and together we have fought together through adversity and written unforgettable pages over the past five years.”
