It seems fitting to have Ferrari’s last champion hand over the mantle to Ferrari’s next champion. Kimi has achieved what he wanted – to be a world champion with Ferrari. I am sure the collaboration between Sauber and Ferrari will become closer for 2019, which will allow Kimi to shine and enjoy racing for the final step in his F1 career. I am sure Ferrari will still continue to benefit from Kimi’s feedback. Endless love for our 2007 champion, this page won’t stop supporting him. FORZA KIMI, FORZA ALFA ROMEO SAUBER!
As for Charles, this remarkable young man who has suffered so many losses will not let us down. Charles is extra special because he’s the first member of the Ferrari Driver Academy to graduate to the top table, anyone who thinks Ferrari will let him fail or be a “number two” are deluding themselves. He will give his all and Ferrari will give their all to him. Have no doubt he’ll be number one within months of 2019. Charles Leclerc will be the 2019 F1 World champion. You heard it here first. FORZA FERRARI, FORZA CHARLES!
When people say Charles Leclerc is too inexperienced for Ferrari….
I say they’re wrong. Charles has shown great maturity, humility and absolute courage. His mental strength is extraordinary (Charles raced on when he lost Jules AND when he lost his father) two events which may have led a weaker person down a different path.
Leclerc has the talent, charisma, fortitude, speed and attitude befitting a proper Ferrari racer. At last a driver Ferrari deserve and missed having in our team!
Ferrari are taking a risk but it’s a risk worthwhile. Charles is a product of OUR academy, he is OUR boy done good. Ferrari are going to protect him at all costs and no way are they going to let him fail. It’s Charles’ future number two who should be worried. 😎
Great podium from Kimi and points again for Charles! Ferrari could have won this race had it not been for some wooden eye. Kimi & Charles ought to be our 2019 line up. I hope it makes very clear to Marchionne and Arrivabene, Vettel is a fucking liability when he’s near another car.
