A period of a thousand contrasting emotions for Scuderia Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc. After the announcement of the multi-year renewal with the Maranello team, the shocking news of Lewis Hamilton’s arrival in Ferrari was officially confirmed. There are conflicting reports about the Monegasque’s reaction. Some say he took it calmly, while others claim he was not aware of the situation. Now there is another “issue” for Charles Leclerc, as someone has hacked his Spotify account.
Charles’s dual passion
The Ferrari driver had opened an artist profile last year. Leclerc, in fact, has a passion for the piano and decided to start sharing some of his compositions. His tracks are named after Grand Prix events, such as AUS23, MIA23, and MON23. All the musical pieces are performed solely on the piano, with Leclerc not singing in any of them.
On January 29, however, a new song appeared on Charles Leclerc’s Spotify profile. The name is “Coffee Shop Love,” and it has nothing to do with the pieces created by the Ferrari driver. In fact, it features not only the piano but also other instruments and even a singer. The voice is clearly not that of the Monegasque. However, in the song credits, we can find the wording “written and performed by Charles Leclerc.”
The Ferrari driver seems to have only noticed it today and posted a story on his social profiles to alert his fans. “Oh, I think my Spotify has been hacked,” Charles Leclerc wrote. “I haven’t started singing yet, and I didn’t make the last released song.”
At least it seems that the Ferrari man is taking it lightly, as can be inferred from the emojis used. We’ll see if Charles Leclerc manages to recover his account and will continue to perform piano pieces even in this 2024. The upcoming Formula 1 calendar includes many more races, so who knows if he’ll have time to be inspired.
