Ferrari new boy Charles Leclerc could be one of the drivers you need to be keeping an eye on next season.
After Lewis Hamilton continued to see off any ounce of competition in his way, many have been left wondering who could be the man to replace him at the top. That could be where Leclerc comes in.
Signed by Ferrari to replace Kimi Raikkonen, big things are expected of the fresh-faced Monaco-native.
Excitement has been rising regarding Leclerc’s potential after a number of his performances for someone so young.
Many online bookmakers believe that Leclerc could be the driver to back if you fancy yourself an upset.
In what will only be his second year in Formula One, Leclerc’s time may not come until a few years time, but his promise and potential are clear to see.
He has previously earned rave reviews for his performances in the FIA Formula 2 Championships and the GP3 series.
Hamilton remains the favourite for the next Drivers’ Championship after his most recent success.
The Brit remains at the pinnacle of the sport, but recently attention has been turning to the contenders who could oust him from the top.
With Hamilton reaching the latter stages of his career, Leclerc is being backed to be a future star and possibly rival the Mercedes man in the near future.
Ferrari will have high hopes going forward. Having started brilliantly in the 2018 Championships, they were soon left behind by Hamilton and Mercedes.
However, now with both Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel at their disposal, excitement will be rising ahead of the first race of the season which takes place in Melbourne, Australia in March.
Vettel remains on the hunt for his fifth Championship win and that will undoubtedly be on his mind once again when the new season gets underway.
