Charles Leclerc: A Biography By Adam Hay-Nicholls AudioBook Summary
From acclaimed journalist Adam Hay-Nicholls, the very first biography of rising star Charles Leclerc.
Few of the drivers on the F1 grid have the racing pedigree of Charles Leclerc. Widely regarded as one of the sport’s hottest prospects, he was crowned F3 and then F2 champion in back-to-back seasons before he made his F1 debut with Sauber in 2018. Now firmly established as Ferrari’s great hope, following in the footsteps of legends Alberto Ascari, Niki Lauda and Michael Schumacher, Leclerc has his eyes set on becoming world champion.
Born in Monaco to a family of comparatively modest means, Leclerc remembers playing with toy cars on a friend’s balcony as the best drivers in the world whizzed around the Monte Carlo circuit on the streets below. This early experience inspired him to get behind the wheel, encouraged by his father Hervé, and so began his meteoric rise in the sport. Along the way, he lost his father, his godfather and his best friend—all racing drivers—and this gave Leclerc the inner steel to become a winner.
