Charles Leclerc is already on a tear...

 

As he prepares for his maiden F1 season, and his very first Grand Prix, Sauber's Charles Leclerc has been tearing up the tarmac at his local karting track.

The 20-year-old Ferrari protégé will be an interesting case study to follow this season. After blitzing the field in F2 last year his outstanding talent suffers no doubt.

While Sauber has often been a good training ground in the past for young apprentices, Leclerc's likely ambition is to prove his mettle while learning the ropes before moving on to something much bigger: the House of Maranello!
