Leclerc responds to transfer rumors.


Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc has contradicted all those who see him in the 2024 Formula 1 World Championship as the successor to record world champion Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes cockpit.

“You’re all grinning because you don’t believe me, but it’s true: there were no talks with Mercedes,” said Leclerc after securing pole position in qualifying for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix on Sunday in Baku (1 p.m. / Sky). had conquered: “I want to be world champion with Ferrari.”

Mercedes Motorsport Director Toto Wolff confirmed Leclerc’s statement. “I didn’t have a single conversation with Charles, I only discussed with him at the airport whether we were going to Starbucks or not,” said the Austrian on the “Sky” microphone: “We’ve been traveling with Lewis for ten years, that’s what we’re doing nothing will change.”

Leclerc, who finished second in the previous year’s World Championship, had extended his contract with Ferrari until 2024 at the end of 2019.
