New Ferrari protégé Charles Leclerc is 20 years old and just 14 races into his first full season of Formula 1, but gained his name within the brand as Ferrari development driver. He will be the second-youngest driver in Ferrari’s F1 history.
Taking to Twitter, Charles said: “Dreams do come true… I’ll be driving for Ferrari for the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship. I will be eternally grateful to Ferrari for the opportunity given. But first, there is a season to finish with an amazing team that gave me the opportunity to fight and show my potential. Let’s go Sauber.”
With seven races left to go in the 2018 season, Raikonnen currently sits at third in the overall standings, with Leclerc in 15th.
