Charles Leclerc has had a huge burden of expectations going into one of the most anticipated races of the seasons, the Monaco GP. This also happens to be his home race and the pressure increases on the Monegasque driver because of his track record on the track. The championship has had a lot of crashes and technical issues which have ruled him out in the past.
This is something that he would want to rectify going into the historic Monaco GP. Despite all of the pressure and anticipation, the Ferrari star took out time to play a charity football match to provide aid to people suffering from AIDS. The match was held in Monaco itself and Charles Leclerc was also accompanied by Fernando Alonso, Pierre Gasly, Carlos Sainz and F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali.
Speaking of his performance on the ground, it was average to say the least and Charles himself hilariously admitted to his football skills. We know, from his past interviews, that the F1 star is good at boxing and other sports but Football does seem to be his Achilles Heel despite sharing the center stage with Cristiano Ronaldo in the past.
Charles Leclerc jokingly admits to his embarrassing performance in a charity football match
In the post match interview, when asked about his skills, we got to see that ever smiling and charismatic Charles Leclerc who jokingly admitted to being embarrassed on the ground. He said, “Absolutely not. I’m rubbish, really. I’m not getting any better with years so it’s quite worrying. But luckily for me I’m better in cars.”
On being asked about the curse in Monaco, he replied, “Of course, it’s not been the luckiest track for me overall but it’s life, it happens. I will just take the same approach that I’ve done in the first few races of 2022 because it’s been successful until now, and hopefully it will be successful at home,” as reported by formula1.
Charles Leclerc knows how to shrug off a bad result and take a disappointing weekend in his stride. Let’s hope he can come out trumps in the upcoming Monaco GP and put a smile on the face of his home crowd.
