It's only a matter of time, Charles Leclerc is a future World Champion

Charles Leclerc has to be the most talented driver on the grid and it is only a matter of time before he becomes a world champion. The young Ferrari driver has qualified on pole position at the last four Grand Prix's and the only other Ferrari driver to do that was Michael Schumacher. Leclerc will follow in his footsteps. 

Schumacher is the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time but Leclerc has the qualities to match the German racer. He is young and has a long career ahead of him and in his first season in a competitive car, he has proved he is the fastest driver currently in the sport. 

The 21-year-old had won two races this season but has been on the podium 8 times. He has made his four-time world championship-winning teammate, Sebastian Vettel, look like the rookie at Ferrari. 

Vettel has struggled this season and Leclerc has now cemented himself as the number one driver at the team and if Ferrari can provide the car, then it is easy to see the Monégasque racer emulating the success Schumacher had with the team. 

Since the summer break Ferrari have won every race and Leclerc will be hoping to finish this weekend by standing on the top step of the podium in Russia. 

He has the talent. He can be one of the best we have ever seen.
