Ferrari extend Charles Leclerc’s contract ‘beyond 2024’

Charles Leclerc has renewed his contract with Ferrari to “beyond the 2024 season”, the Formula One team announced on Thursday.

The Italian racing outfit did not specify the length of the contract extension for Leclerc, who finished fifth last season and way behind world champion Max Verstappen.

“I’m very pleased to know that I will be wearing the Scuderia Ferrari race suit for several more seasons to come. To race for this team has been my dream since I was three years old,” said Leclerc in a statement.

“My dream remains that of winning the world championship with Ferrari and I’m sure that in the years ahead, we will enjoy great times together and make our fans happy.”

Leclerc, 26, has been driving for Ferrari’s F1 team since 2019, one year after making his debut in the premier racing championship with Sauber.

The Monegasque had three years previously been at the Ferrari Driver Academy before winning the F2 championship in 2017.

Since joining the Scuderia Leclerc has won five Grands Prix, claimed 30 podium finishes and started on pole position 23 times.
