    First time in their history they took a risk with a driver this young, good luck to both of them

    Congratulations Charles!
    here's a warm welcome to the Scuderia with HIGH hopes for your future!!!!

    and with a touch of sadness, (because in my view Kimi has always been an excellent and The most likeable driver Ever in F1), a warm goodbye to Kimi, with wishes for a Good future at Sauber!

    I'm sure there'll be some bumps and stumbles along the way but its a learning curve.

    Does this make LeClerc the youngest driver to ever join Ferrari??

    Ricardo Rodriguez was 19yo & 213days.

    All the best Leclerc..!! Hope you deliver it & make the team proud.

    Ferrari coming off with different philosophy from past couple of years, which did brought SF71H. In similar way, hope this move too bring lot of surprises & glories to ferrari.

    Good warm welcome Charles. Great move brave move by Ferrari. Its about time this happened. If it worked for Mclaren RBR in past, why not for us.

    Dreams do come true, he has one of the best mentors.

    Since the time when Bianchi was around, I've always thought that Ferrari should foster a young talent alongside an experience lead driver.

    I'm glad we are doing this now. I hope Leclerc will continue to improve, and is a future Ferrari champion someday.

    I'm curious to see what will happen of Giovinazzi. An italian driver which is just as quick is a dream for all Italian Ferrari Supporters. Rumours going around that he might partner with Kimi at Sauber next year....

    see where it's heading? Leclerc / Giovinazzi after Vettel/Kimi era...

    Bienvenue Charles!

    I find him, as a person, a lot like Jules...
    Very likable, nice character.

    Hopefully a bright future awaits for you

    He is a humble and likable character and also quite talented and as far as I can tell he loves what he does.

    Welcome to the team Charles, exciting times lie ahead !

    Welcome Charles Leclerc!

    So, Charles scores a permanent Ferrari seat one year quicker than Jean Alesi did into his Formula 1 career. That's a record in modern times.

    I am very, very happy with this decision by the Scuderia - and pleasantly surprised too.

    This is no doubt a homage to the vision and strategic nous of Sergio Marchionne - all power to him and his memory and all power to the Ferrari board for having decided to honour his wishes and go for Leclerc.

    I am genuinely sorry to see Kimi go - he was a character and will forever be an important part of the Scuderia's heritage.

    But new blood was needed in Ferrari and I think strategically this is the correct choice.

    It is my sincere hope that he eventually gives Vettel one hell of a run for his money. Sebastian needs that.

    I just hope that Ferrari continues to be a team that takes risks, thinks out of the box and stops reverting to a conservative. 'safe' approach. It's the only way we are going to win championships.

    Bienvenue Charles!

    Good move.
    Sad to say but Kimi is over the hill.
    Had he won in Monza he may still be in. But Monza proved sadly he has lost it.

    I don't think so. The deal was done way ahead Monza.

    Welcome Charles! I am sure you will bring great results. Should Ferrari be as impressive as this year WCC isn't out of your reach as soon as 2019.
