Numbers don't lie, right? Charles Leclerc is now the lead Ferrari Formula 1 driver in the 2019 standings and is therefore the number one in the pecking order at the team, displacing Sebastian Vettel.
The method is too simple, but the conclusion is accurate.
Leclerc's back-to-back wins in Belgium and Italy helped him overhaul Vettel for fourth place in the drivers' standings, and his Monza success wrote him a place in Tifosi folklore. Both triumphs jarred with two poor weekends for Vettel. While Leclerc's season reached a new peak at Monza, Vettel's hit a new low.
