Ask any Formula 1 enthusiast and most of them would say the thrilling Street Circuit of Monte Carlo, Monaco, is one they wait for the F1 paddocks to arrive at, every year. Monaco’s Circuit de Monaco has gifted the motorsport fans with some amazing races through all these years, and one of the most recent ones was the 2018 Monaco Grand Prix where Daniel Ricciardo was crowned the Champion.

Indeed, Monaco remains to be one of the best circuits on the F1 calendar, but if anyone has any problem with the historic race track, then it is Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, who was born in Monaco. The Scuderia racer has never found luck on the streets of his home country ever since he had signed with the oldest F1 team in the world. Charles Leclerc DNF’ed in his first Monaco GP as a Ferrari racer, and could not even start his race in Monaco in 2021 after winning pole position there.

After a series of misfortunes in his native land, Charles Leclerc is going to go back to Monaco after the Spanish Grand Prix and this time, he hopes to set the track on fire–figuratively. He is currently leading the WDC Standings, and wants to win his home Grand Prix and prove the “Monaco Curse” does not exist. But just before that, as the Monegasque took Niki Lauda’s histori race car for a stroll around the Monaco streets, he crashed into a sidewall and now, he is reacting to his accident on Twitter.

To say that Charles Leclerc is painfully aware of his bad luck in his home country’s street circuit would be an understatement. The Scuderia driver knows very well that he has never been able to finish a race in Monte Carlo, and most of his fans think he has some sort of a curse that makes sure he never scores points in his home race.

But this time, as the leader of the Championship standings, and with a near-perfect car, the Ferrari SF-75, Charles seems to be in a better position than ever, for grabbing the race win at Monte Carlo. And to show that he is confident around the streets of Monaco, he took out Ferrari racer Niki Lauda’s historic car for a drive. But just as he was going around rascasse, he lost his brakes and slammed into a sidewall.

Now, Charles Leclerc is joking about his bad luck on Twitter after his fans flooded the social media site with their concerns that the curse on Leclerc regarding Monaco is actually true.
