“I am who I am”- Charles Leclerc doesn’t want to change himself for the sake of showmanship, claims that it is out of the equation for him.
Charles Leclerc’s fame grew immensely when he signed for Ferrari, and proving his calibre in the team. The 23-year-old driver is now a household name among Formula 1 fans.
But he claims in an interview with Armani that all the showbiz hasn’t affected his personality, and wouldn’t change himself for the sake of market desirability and showmanship.
“I like things to be precise, especially in my professional life. I’ve always made my own choices, surrounded by people that I trust, and we choose together,” he said.
Often it has been emphasised that to remain relevant in public, a celebrity usually changes his lifestyle. Still, Leclerc feels he is adamant about keeping his moral and principles the same as before.
“If I were asked to be more of a showman, I wouldn’t change. I am who I am, and I wouldn’t want to be anybody else. So yes, I’m myself,” concluded Leclerc.
Charles Leclerc, the main man of Ferrari
Amidst the transition at Ferrari, where Sebastian Vettel for long was seen as the senior man in the team, his departure now brings the responsibility on Leclerc.
The Monegasque presently is most experienced with the modus operandi at Ferrari. In contrast, his new teammate Carlos Sainz, who has just stepped into Ferraro needs time to settle in before he can rely on par with Leclerc.
Thus, this year Ferrari would have added Leclerc’s expectations, though he already seems to be ready for it. Meanwhile, the Italian outfit is eyeing a rise ahead of the 2021 season.
Last year fell to the P6 in the constructors’ title race, and now their real target is to end at P3 on the table, behind Mercedes and Red Bull.
