Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc comes into the Monaco Grand Prix weekend six points behind Championship leader, Max Verstappen.
Monaco is an incredibly special race of Leclerc. It’s his home country, and the cars race around the very streets he grew up in. In spite of his connection to the Principality, victory or success of any kind has always eluded him there.
For the last five years, he’s had some issue or incident plague all of his outings in front of his home fans. With Ferrari in the midst of a Championship battle in 2022, Leclerc is hoping to finally win in Monaco.
It is always so special to drive in the streets of the city I grew up in.

Leclerc will be hoping that he can put his Monaco GP ‘curse’ behind him, and go on to put in a stellar show in front of his home fans. His teammate Carlos Sainz too, hasn’t had a very good time behind the wheel lately.
