Precocious and exceptionally gifted, Charles Leclerc began his Formula 1 career at the age of just 21. A portrait of the young Monegasque prodigy.
A land of rallying since 1911 when the famous Rallye Monte-Carlo was introduced, and the country which has hosted one of the best-known Formula 1 Grand Prix events since 1929, the Principality of Monaco has inspired generations of racing drivers.
Today, Charles Leclerc occupies a special place among them. Raised in Monaco, he has watched as, year after year, his city is transformed into a paddock, the streets becoming a track, the pavements into terraces. As a wide-eyed spectator behind the safety barriers, the young Charles was already imagining himself carving his own path around the winding Monegasque circuit.
