Charles Leclerc, who has celebrated the last two Formula One races, said that his comparisons to the legendary Michael Schumacher, which he has received in recent days, are a great honor, but noted that is his career at the very beginning.
Jean Todt, who was at the helm of Ferrari at the time when legendary Michael Schumacher was racing for the Maranell team, is convinced that 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.
Leclerc also responded to the words of the FIE President, who is very honored to be compared to the seven-time World Champion.
It's a great honor to be compared to Michael, who is a Ferrari legend and one of the best racers in Formula One history. is that I have just started my racing journey and will have to justify comparisons with such names on the track as well.
