The Maranello team has officially announced a multi-year agreement with the Monegasque driver, who has been part of FDA and the team since 2019.
The path of Charles Leclerc and Ferrari will continue in the same direction, at least in the coming seasons. Today, the official announcement came from the Maranello team, confirming the reached agreement with the Monegasque driver for the “coming seasons.” The detailed duration of the new contract, expiring at the end of 2024, has not been disclosed, but it is now a multi-year renewal.
“The Scuderia Ferrari is pleased to announce the extension of collaboration with Charles Leclerc, who will continue to compete for the Italian team in the upcoming seasons of the Formula 1 World Championship,” reads the brief statement released by the team, which has supported Leclerc since the beginning of his F1 journey. Leclerc, in fact, was part of the Ferrari Driver Academy, which aided his ascent to the Circus through titles in GP3 and F2.
The dream continues
“The dream continues. I am grateful to announce that I will continue my adventure in red,” wrote Leclerc on Twitter/X, in what was his first immediate comment after the announcement. As Ferrari’s official driver since 2019, Leclerc has secured five victories and 23 pole positions with the Scuderia, also achieving a total of 30 podiums. The ultimate goal is, of course, to one day clinch the coveted world title, which has eluded Maranello since 2007.
With Leclerc’s renewal settled, Ferrari fans now await news about the fate of the other red knight, Carlos Sainz. The Spaniard’s contract also expires at the end of 2024, and an announcement about his future is expected in the coming weeks.
