Besides Formula 1, there are many racing classics, such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Charles Leclerc seems to think it would be great to compete in the race one day, but not as long as he is driving in F1.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is normally held in June, but this weekend drivers are already showing their endurance. At the moment the virtual 24 hours of Le Mans is going on, in which Max Verstappen is taking part.

F1 colleague Charles Leclerc will not be driving the virtual version of Circuit de la Sarthe, but the Monegasque was asked during the stream about his opinion on the race and if he will ever participate. For Leclerc, the latter is "a dream come true" and a goal he certainly wants to achieve in his career.

No Le Mans for Leclerc for now

Still, the dream will not become a reality for now. "Whether I want to go and do it now, I have to say no. For now, I am focused on my F1 career, which I hope will last as long as possible," the driver explained during the 24 hours of Le Mans stream.

In addition, it seems that Leclerc will not follow Verstappen's example and compete in a virtual version either. But when the Monegasque finishes his adventure in the upper echelon of motorsports, he will certainly aim to drive a car in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
