The tests Leclerc and Ferrari must pass before Hamilton's arrival

Ferrari’s star has been a master of Formula 1 qualifying in recent seasons, but he and the team have not always been so adept at converting this to race performances. There is confidence that this can change in 2024

Five wins in five years is hardly the return Charles Leclerc hoped for when he embarked upon his journey with Ferrari in Formula 1. His collection of 23 pole positions has translated into victories only four times, perfectly symbolic of his tenure at the Prancing Horse.

Although he bears the responsibility for a few of those failures to convert, most have not been Leclerc’s fault. Ferrari has been plagued by a handful of false dawns, the team’s sloppy strategy calls and untimely unreliability issues serving to restrict Leclerc’s appearances on the top step of the podium.
