All eyes are on the Singapore Grand Prix as fans are expecting some exciting action from the original night race of Formula 1, which will be held at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. This is the first race after a two-week-long break since the Monza Grand Prix, and it presents a unique opportunity to Max Verstappen. If all goes well and the Dutchman ticks a number of criteria, then he will be able to win the World Championship in Singapore, with five races still left in the roster.
Amidst all the talks about the impending World Championship results and the tough competition between Max Verstappen and his closest rival–Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, the paddocks around the Marina Bay Circuit have seen a fair share of hilarious moments. And one of those comical moments involve Charles Leclerc.
The 24-year-old Monegasque has a huge job ahead of him–to end the season with Ferrari on a hopeful note by securing the second position in the WDC Standings. But he was caught off guard by a fan who asked him for an autograph on a Ferrari cap, and just as he was putting his initials, he found that the man had disappeared on him!
Charles Leclerc’s fan disappears on him–and he keeps the fan’s cap for himself
Meeting with fans, interacting with them, and giving out autographs are all parts of an F1 driver’s life. And Charles Leclerc is one of the most popular racers amongst the followers of F1, thus he is used to all kinds of antics that the fans pull off sometimes. But he never expected to be ghosted by one of his fans like he was at the Singapore Grand Prix after the Free Practice Sessions.

It all happened as Charles Leclerc was walking back to the Ferrari motorhome with his press officer Mia Djacic. A fan suddenly came up to Leclerc with a Ferrari cap in his hand, asking for an autograph. As Charles got busy signing the cap, he looked up and found that the fan had vanished! Then, he tried putting the cap on top of his own, but the fan returned with another cap, asking for another signature. The entire incident got captured, and the video went viral on Twitter.
