Leclerc made the move to Ferrari after just one season in Formula 1, but the Monegasque driver was so impressive for Sauber in his rookie F1 season, that the Maranello-based squad decided to replace the veteran Kimi Raikkonen with the exciting youngster.
For all of Ferrari's woes this season, Leclerc has been a bright spark in 2019. However, Leclerc is yet to win a race for Ferrari - with the team as a whole winless in a Mercedes-dominated season.
Two pole positions in Bahrain and Austria for Leclerc maybe indicates that he has felt the weight of expectation a bit since moving to Scuderia, but the 21-year-old has insisted he "doesn't really feel" any pressure.
"The pressure, I really don't feel it," the Ferrari driver said. "Obviously being a Ferrari driver is always a dream come true, but it also is quite a lot more work.
"You need to work as hard as possible, when you come into a top team in general. There are a lot of people, you need to be understanding and learning how to work with so many people at the beginning coming from a smaller team.
"This has been the biggest challenge for me."
