“I’ll definitely miss Formula 2” – Charles Leclerc

Our champion discusses the season in The Big Interview

Charles Leclerc: “I’ll definitely miss Formula 2” Hang around Charles Leclerc for long enough and you’ll start to notice that he’s not quite like other people. Don’t read this as a pejorative, because it’s not: quick with a smile in any conversation with friends and his team, he has the ability to quickly find enough common ground with someone to put them at ease and cut through any reserve, which is uncommon enough in someone as young as the Monegasque driver.

But what really marks him out, in person and in his career, is how uncommonly precise he is in everything he does.

Watch him in the paddock, playing a football/tennis hybrid on the court that is always marked out next to the PREMA truck by Thursday on a race weekend, and you’ll initially be impressed by his athleticism before noting how long his plays for, running through competitors as he looks for the perfect placement of every kick long after his rivals give up the ghost.

Or talk to him about anything at length, and you’ll see how his conversation endlessly loops around itself as he looks for the right sentence to answer a question already asked and answered more precisely, more accurately from his perspective.
