Charles Leclerc Thread ­čĺĽ

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to see what he can do at Ferrari this year. He's the reason I started watching GP2 regularly back then, as I heard so many exciting things about him.

 

Quite a remarkable story too:

He's a very talented and a very likeable fellow without a doubt and I hope he does well and even wins the WDC one day´╗┐, but I'm getting seriously fed up with how the media is┬ámilking his story. That's not his fault whatsoever´╗┐, but it's getting pushed a bit too much for my liking. Sure it's tragic´╗┐, but it's also very personal´╗┐, intimate┬áand very special´╗┐, and it kind of starts losing its meaning when it gets repeated over and over again whenever Charles Leclerc is being mentioned...

On topic´╗┐, I'm also very keen to see him in a Ferrari. I still think it's a risky move as the pressure to perform might be tough for him to handle at such a tender age´╗┐, although with the changes in higher management´╗┐, maybe that will change too. He did well for Sauber last season but there were also a few mistakes along the way (understandably so) and I hope the hype around him won't be destructive as he is surely still in the process of learning and improving himself further.

Yes and no. The media can go overboard with it, but it's him himself who often mentions Jules and his "Papa" on social media. I think he enjoys the fact that he's doing it for them too, and openly so. But at the same time he's so likable and charismatic that Jules and his father don't overshadow his own persona, IMO.

Him talking about his father and Jules openly and dedicating his achievements to them is understandable and I don't think anyone could have anything against it; on a contrary, it's the kind of emotional stuff that people love and that's the reason why the media is going overboard with it as they know what the audience desires. I was deeply touched the first time I heard his story, but am I going to feel the same if pretty much every outlet republishes it again and again? Probably not, as it starts to feel like they are just selling an emotional story to the audience that craves for a fairy tale.

Being able to race but finishing 20 seconds behind your teammate is a bit more embarrassing to be honest.

His team radios showed again how humble he is. When the engineer told him to stay calm and he said "I'll try"... or even apologizing after the race.

We don't deserve Charles :'(

 

Especially when it wasn't even his fault :(

At least he managed to destroy the Mercedes barrier. The biggest impact a Ferrari has had on them all season.
