Charles was racing with Cem Bolukbasi and a lobby of drivers including Cem Bolukbasi. The iconic Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps was the race track. The Ferrari driver was leading all the way comfortably with Cem trailing behind closely in second place. It was all fine until the last lap when the Turkish made a lunge to the finish line
It was the last lap of the race and Charles was comfortably leading heading into the last set of corners famously known as the “Bus stop” Chicane. Heading into the chicane, Charles was gliding with ease while Cem came close and attempted an overtake around the outside over the kerbs, as they approached the Chicane. Cem, racing in his Toro Rosso Red Bull car took a daring lunge and nudged Leclerc’s Ferrari as they headed to the Finish line.
Charles was thrown off by the bizarre overtake by the Turkish driver and tried to sprint as hard as possible to the end but was beaten by a whisker.
