Shock for Charles Leclerc in Monaco.
On Sunday, the 24-year-old crashed into the barriers in his home country at the traditional Grand Prix Historique on the streets of the principality with the Ferrari 312B3, which the Austrian Niki Lauda, who died in 2019, had already driven in the mid-1970s. After all, the Ferrari star can continue to drive in the car, which is badly battered at the rear. The car is valued at several million US dollars.
“If you think you have all the bad luck in the world”
“When you think you’ve had all the bad luck in the world in Monaco and then lose the brakes in the Rascasse corner with one of the most iconic historic Ferrari Formula 1 cars,” Leclerc commented on his faux pas on Twitter. Videos of the bitter accident, in which Leclerc at least sustained no injuries, are quickly circulating on the internet.
So far, Leclerc has not had any luck in his own Formula 1 car on the legendary Mediterranean circuit. He has been unsuccessful in all three of his starts in the past. The next opportunity is at the Grand Prix on May 29th. Before that, there will be a race in Barcelona next week. (SDA)
