Big enthusiasm around Charles Leclerc

Since Thursday, the Ferrari of the famous Place d’Armes in Monaco no longer bears the image of the local driver. Everything went quickly and some fans therefore leave the stand disappointed. The driver’s supporters are confident after seeing their protege take pole yesterday. Despite the Monegasque’s curse on his land, they believe that the “Little Prince” has gained experience and gained serenity.
