Charles Leclerc is already regarded as a world championship threat, despite having only two seasons in Formula 1. He says "there is still a big margin of improvement" to come with his own driving, but he's shown enough to be regarded as one of the new 'Big Three', along with Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen.
Six-time champion Hamilton's title credentials need no introduction and Verstappen put in the sort of campaign last year that would have been good enough to fight for the championship had Red Bull been more consistently competitive in the first half of the year. But what of Leclerc?
There were some errors in 2019, such as crashing in qualifying in Azerbaijan, and there were days when team-mate Sebastian Vettel had him beaten too, but it's probably fair to say reliability and strategy issues cost him more points. And he still became only the second team-mate, after Daniel Ricciardo at Red Bull in 2014, to outscore Vettel across an F1 season.
