Charles Leclerc was so immersed in a streaming session on Twitch that his girlfriend, Charlotte, had to resort to a novel method to grab his attention
Leclerc on Twitch has been one of the best things to come out of this extended period without F1. Not just the fact that he’s actually doing it, but because he seems to genuinely love streaming and gets really into it - perhaps too into it, in this case!
The 22-year-old was concentrating so hard during a session on Dirt 2.0 that he couldn’t see or hear his phone lighting up with messages from his girlfriend, Charlotte. It seems that Charlotte had locked herself out of the apartment and needed Charles to come down an open the door. With contacting his phone proving fruitless, she switched to Plan B: subscribing to his Twitch channel to be able to send him a message that he might actually see.
This is not what we expected to see from F1 drivers in 2020… but we bloody love it.
