    Charles Leclerc

    Is he deserving of his Ferrari seat yet?

    Reminds me a lot of this:



    Disappointed Since 2010

    It goes without saying, we need him and should treat him accordingly otherwise he will be snapped up by a team with a competitive car that works on all circuits and whatever tyres they give him.

    Agreed.

    Only his second year in F1, in the most high pressure team, and his driving has been incredible, providing some of the best racing we've seen in a long time.

    I'm very happy Leclerc is at Ferrari, hope he stays and that the Team can provide him with a good enough car and strategies to fight for the championship.

    He's definitely our best driver at the moment, and that against a four-time world champion. Just like last year he's revving up by mid-season too in his new environment. He's definitely been an improvement on Kimi by a country-mile. He's yet to pass Vettel in the championship standings, but it feels like that's just a matter of when, not if.

    About time, Ferrari has been open about giving preferential treatment to Vettel from start of the season & even with that, he is what 3 points clear of Leclerc?

    Will be interesting to see Vettel vs Leclerc in Germany. Many people think Marcus Ericsson was not good measure stick last year, but he is solid driver, and Leclerc put 1s between them in Germany (Nasr was 0.1s faster in 2016 for referrence).

    Can Leclerc outqualify Vettel there? I think he can, and I think he will. How hard will that hit Seb I wonder?

    It does seem that Leclerc usually gets the inferior pit stop strategy...

    I was one of them. I thought Charles needed another year in a midfield team where he could hone his skills without too much pressure.
    Clearly the boy was ready and shows at every race how ready he really was.

    Next race Germany, I hope Ferrari is fair with both drivers. 3 points difference shouldn't mean Seb is still the top driver and Charles has to move over if that's the case.

    Germany should be interesting. Charles still looking for that first win, Can Seb raise his game at his home race?

    Impressed with his tenacity under pressure - him and Max push each other hard and rather ruthlessly but in a manner that's both enjoyable and fair. However, it's brewing between these two to the point they'll take each other out soon!

    Charles and Max seem to be fighting for 2nd, 3rd, place. Either finish is a lot of points to be thrown away with a DNF. I think that will keep them on the very care full side when going at it. And there' s always that chance for slipping into 1st. place if something don't go right for Merc! Great watching the two race for sure!

    Like a new pair of running shoes that never needed breaking in! Always had great enthusiasm for Leclerc's arrival at Ferrari and he's already EXCEEDED my expectations. The Real Deal? YES INDEED!

    Motivation points that should be harnessed by the team to get the maximum result for both drivers.

    I am sure Charles will show up. Seb needs to take a long, hard think at what he wants to do.

    We are past #1 and #2, let them have at it. If anyone needs any favors, it should be given to the faster driver.
