Charles Leclerc has resided in Monaco for the entirety of his childhood where he grew up watching Formula One drivers take on one of the most famous circuits in the world. This instilled the ambition of becoming an F1 driver within him. Like the rest of the drivers on the grid, Leclerc also aspires to win a race at his home circuit. However, the Monacan hasn’t had the best luck in the Monacan circuit.

Leclerc competed in the historic Monaco Grand Prix last weekend. His presentation in Formula One legend Niki Lauda’s classic 1974 Ferrari, however, went wrong, and the Monegasque ended up on the wall. Leclerc revealed on Twitter that he went deep into La Rascasse corner, lost control of the rear of the car and backed into the barriers.

This is not the first time Leclerc has wound up in the historic street circuit’s wall. In Monaco, the Ferrari driver has never finished a race. It is desired that he will have more luck this year, as Max Verstappen is shuttering in on him in the world drivers’ championship.

“The challenge for a Formula 1 driver to drive around here with no room for mistakes is something that we all appreciate as drivers. For me, it’s also the streets that I’ve been taking to go to school every morning by bus when I was a child. It’s a very special track. It hasn’t happened yet [a victory], so I need to make it happen this year”, added Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc in an interview ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix this weekend.

As of now, Leclerc is leading the world drivers’ championship leaderboard with a whopping 104 points. However, reigning F1 world champion and Red Bull driver Max Verstappen isn’t far too behind in 2nd place with 85 points. It is mere 19 points that separates Verstappen from Leclerc at the top of the table.

Ferrari is expected to bring their biggest upgrade of the season yet in the Spanish Grand Prix which will take place this weekend from 20 May-22 May 2022 at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
