FIE President and former Ferrari boss Jen Todt believes that young Charles Laclerc is distinguished by similar qualities to the most successful racer in the history of Ferrari and Formula 1 Michael Schumacher.
Todt was at the helm of the Ferrari at the time when the legendary Michael Schumacher was racing for the Maranell team, winning five consecutive World Cup titles in red.
The FIE President is convinced that the young Charles Leclerc is talented enough to follow the path of the legendary German racer in the future.
Todt told Auto Bild:
Charles is mentally extremely powerful. He has all the qualities that excel at the best racers and can lead the team the way Michael Schumacher used to be. Leclerc represents the future of Formula One and Ferrari.
