This article contains information regarding Monégasque racing driver Charles Leclerc and his brand endorsements.

Regarded as one of the best drivers of his generation, Leclerc came through the Ferrari academy. After an impressive debut season with Sauber in 2018, he replaced Ferrari World Champion Kimi Räikkönen in 2019 and took the world by storm in his debut season with the Scuderia, picking up not only three impressive wins but also getting the better of his veteran four-time World Champion teammate, Sebastian Vettel.

Leclerc has been Ferrari’s scarlet boy, and given his talent there are no doubts about why the Italian team have him on a long-term contract.

In 2022, Leclerc got into his first World Title fight with Max Verstappen, though he and Ferrari couldn’t last the whole season against Verstappen and Red Bull. While Ferrari haven’t been able to provide Leclerc with the fastest car on the grid yet, the Monégasque is destined for greatness sooner rather than later.
