Charles Leclerc is a professional Formula One driver who currently drives for the Ferrari team. He is the youngest driver to ever win a Formula One race, having won the 2018 Italian Grand Prix at the age of 21. Leclerc began his career in karting before making the jump to single-seaters in 2013. He competed in the Formula Renault 2.0, Formula 3 and GP3 series before making his F1 debut with Sauber in 2018. Since joining Ferrari in 2019, Leclerc has enjoyed a successful start to his career in the top tier of motorsport, with five wins and seven pole positions to his name. He is considered one of the brightest young talents in the sport and is tipped to become a future World Champion.
