Charles Leclerc has definitely provided the missing spark to Ferrari ever since he signed with the Italian Giants. The last decade has been a period of slump for Ferrari and no one has been able to produce the kind of performances Michael Schumacher did his heydays. We saw greats like Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen join Ferrari but none of them have been able to become world champion with the team.

We saw Williams, second most successful team with Constructors’ titles and 7 Driver titles, struggle to get back to same form after their era of greatness in the 1980s and 1990s and there was speculation that Ferrari might end up being the same eventually. But, all those speculations have been washed away after the start to this new season and Charles Leclerc has been an integral part of that.

The Monegasque driver has had a blistering start to the season and seems to have steadied the ship for the Italian manufacturer. Charles Leclerc might have had a tough run of results but he has definitely taken Ferrari to the place where they are supposed to be, i.e., challenging for both the titles. It was about time that we saw the most successful team in F1 to being competitive.

Charles Leclerc has revealed the things he wants to achieve in F1 and the reason behind it. In a recent interview, he said, “This winter Mattia told me about Michael Schumacher. About how he influenced the team and encouraged professionalism. You can still feel the mark he left on Ferrari. He made us all dream.”

“I wanted to get into F1 to become like him. And being on his own team means a lot. Especially if I manage to win a championship like him.

Ferrari is always Ferrari. It’s a dream, but we have to win. And I want to win too,” as reported by formulapassion.

Charles Leclerc definitely has the potential to challenge Max Verstappen and dethrone the reigning world champion. He would want to do it sooner rather than later and roll back the days for Ferrari.
