Charles Leclerc says driving for Ferrari at Monaco is a dream come true

Charles Leclerc says that it is a "dream come true" to have the opportunity to race a Ferrari around his home Grand Prix. The Monegasque driver will hope that he can perform well at the circuit and finish the race high in the points.  

“It’s my first home GP as a Ferrari driver and it’s bound to be a special weekend. I remember as a kid, I would spend the afternoon with a friend who lived in a flat with a balcony overlooking the Ste. Devote corner.

“We used to play with toy cars while the real ones rushed past beneath us. I always told myself that one day, it would be great to be driving in this race.

“And yes, that did happen and the fact I’m taking part in a Ferrari this year means I can honestly talk about a dream come true.”

Leclerc will hope that he can perform well at the Grand Prix and finish on the podium at his home race. 

“To do well in Monaco, you need everything in place, from courage to bravura, from luck to having a competitive car. I hope I can put on a good show in front of my own people and I will definitely be giving it my best shot.”
