    so delighted for him ive been 1 of biggest supporters since I saw his awesome drive in opening F2 round in Bahrain when he pitted for tyres in sprint race & went for 14th to 1st in 9 laps. as i say Leclerc is brilliant driver, he will do very well & without heaping pressure on the guy if Ferrari deliver a capable car next season. he can defientely win a race next year wouldn't surprise if we had 2007 where the young pretender challenges for the world title

    I'm looking forward to him making Seb look a bit crap.

    Those words may come back and bight you in the bum GL. I wasn't expecting Seb to struggle against Danny Ric at RBR given that it was effectively "his" team and how Seb won the mind games battle against Webber and yet struggle he did.

    It's going to be fascinating and I'm a fan of both drivers so I don't know who I want to do the best out of the two of them!!

    That's if I get to watch F1 next year of course.

    I expect him to be showing Vettel the way home in short order.

    This move suggests Seb is no longer calling the shots at Ferrari, and given his performances that shouldn't be a surprise. In hindsight they'd have been better off with Alonso.

    Vettel hasn’t been calling the shots at Ferrari anyway. Marchionne supposedly closed the deal with Leclerc at the end of May because he was fed up with Raikkonens performances.
    If it hadn’t been for Stefano Domenicali I'm sure that Massa wouldn’t have lasted more than two seasons next to Alonso either. At that time there also weren’t many other options available who were regarded as being better than Massa.
    I don’t think Vettel worries about his team mates and a season like 2014 has not reoccurred yet.

    Indeed it hasn't.

    Vettel in today's press conference:
    "Kimi has been my best team-mate, no question."

    Mmm-hm. With the possible exception of Bourdais, he's patently been the worst; but the worst is the best for Seb. I'm looking forward to next season a lot more than I thought I would.

    Fernando Alonso once described Felippe Massa as the best team mate be ever had and Lewis said the same thing about Kovalinen.

    Guess you can't beat a good number 2 ;)

    I feel like Leclerc needs at least one big result before the end of the season. I remember when Perez got signed by McLaren he binned it in nearly every race for the rest of the season and really started on the back foot.

    Probably say the same for Gasly too.

    Well he got 9th today that was good considering he had not scored in 5 races and pretty much around the time when suggestions he might race for Ferrari started

    What an awesome drive by LeClerc whole weekend in Bahrain. Too bad he had engine problems and did not finish on top.

    Was a great weekend for Leclerc,was tough on him not to win the race.Also the way that he carried himself with what happened showed a sign of maturity that Max Verstappen should take note of.

    Has anyone noticed the high praise Verstappen got for everything he did in the commentary has lessened a bit in last two races?

    Leclerc's loss of the win after such a good drive reminded me very much of Juan Pablo Montoya in Brazil all those years ago.

    Should of known it would go belly up for Leclerc when Crofty put the commentators curse on him on lap 42.

    I think a lot of momentum is with LeClerc not just from his own team but within the paddock and Vettel must be scratching his head how he could not live with him this weekend

    It may be Ferrari allowed him to use the full power while Vettel was on reduced power, if he lasted then a Ferrari would get a one,two, he nearly did but Vettel did his usual and it all went tits up:rolleyes::whistle:

    Yes, that makes sense. But LeClerc engine took a hit for that. Awesome drive still..
