“The Charles Leclerc Grandstand means a lot to me” – Ferrari star cannot wait to welcome fans back to F1 for his home race Monaco Grand Prix at Monte Carlo.
Charles Leclerc has had a rapid rise in the world of motorsports. After winning both the GP3 Series (now F3) in 2016 and F2 in 2017, he made his F1 debut with Alfa Romeo Sauber the following year.
He impressed massively for the Italian-Swiss team, finishing in the Top 10 on ten occasions, amassing 39 points. The Ferrari Driver Academy cadet caught the eye of the Scuderia leadership and was subsequently promoted to the iconic team. He has led from the front with Ferrari, winning two races and making it to the podium a further ten times.
Really looking forward to racing at home next week and can’t wait to see you all in my dedicated Harbour grandstand. It’s always a special weekend and having fans there makes it even better 🇲🇨 pic.twitter.com/TwLBTSWKbi

The Charles Leclerc Grandstand at Monaco
So, it was little surprise when the Charles Leclerc Grandstand became a reality at Monte Carlo, the home of the Monaco GP. The grandstand will also welcome fans back into the sport, something Leclerc is very excited about.
I am very happy. It’s the first time I’ll have a grandstand in my name.
“Unfortunately, last year everything was canceled. Besides, it’s the first Grand Prix of the year where we will have a bit of a crowd. In Barcelona, there were very few. To be here in Monaco, at home, and to know that there will be fans, makes me happy.
“The Charles Leclerc Grandstand means a lot to me. As a child, I used to watch the Grand Prix, hoping one day to be in Formula 1. Years later, I’m there, with Ferrari no less, and with a grandstand in my name and people who support me!
“It’s been over a year and a half since we’ve had anyone at the circuit and, although I’m doing what I love and I’m very lucky to be traveling in a situation like this, it’ll be nice to have some supportive people in the stands again. It gives us hope that we will be back to normal very soon.”
