Podcast: How good is Leclerc really?

Feb 1 2021

Charles Leclerc didn’t have the best of machinery in Formula 1 in 2020, yet most recognise him as one of the best drivers in grand prix racing.

But just how good is he?

This is a question we answer in the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast, as we ask if he’s a future world champion or overrated.

Mark Hughes and Scott Mitchell join Edd Straw to discuss Leclerc’s merits – in particular the criticism that he makes too many mistakes that is often cited by those who don’t rate Leclerc as one of F1’s best.

We also discuss his underlying pace, racecraft, technical ability and how he might fare in a world championship fight.

There’s also a look at new team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr’s progress in his first Ferrari test driving a 2018 car at Fiorano last week.
