"This was a big one. Is he okay?" Leclerc asks, with a noticeable fear in his voice after he saw part of Romain Grosjean's crash in his mirrors. The Monegasque was left feeling worried regarding the fate of his colleague.

An onboard clip containing a conversation between Charles Leclerc and his pit wall has been released, revealing how the young Ferrari driver reacted to seeing Romain Grosjean crash in Bahrain last Sunday. 

Cursing and sighing, the Ferrari driver hears the instructions from the pit wall while there is still no answer. This is not the first time Charles Leclerc has been exposed to the risks that can occur in motorsport: last year his friend Anthoine Hubert died in the Formula 2 race at Spa.
