What is most surprising about 21-year-old Charles Leclerc becoming Ferrari's youngest ever Formula 1 race winner, nestling between Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen in terms of the fewest attempts to take that maiden victory, is not that it has happened so soon. Instead, it's that it has taken this long.
From the moment Leclerc stepped into the Ferrari, he has looked the part. From race two in Bahrain he appeared more than ready to take the top step of the podium.
There have been days where things have not been smooth; but it says much about his qualities that he has learned from those dips to ensure the peaks afterwards are higher.
