Several Drivers Sent Comforting Texts To Leclerc After His French GP Mistake

It’s been a tough week for Charles Leclerc after his dramatic crash from the lead at the French Grand Prix. The Ferrari driver, and current title contender, isn’t afraid to be very self-critical and was certainly brutally honest about his performance after the shunt with the media.

However, he revealed that several drivers picked up the phone and sent him a text message after the inchident (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves).

One of those was Sebastian Vettel, who today announced that he would be retiring at the end of the 2022 season.

“He’s a friend, and he always texts me, like he did after Sunday,” Leclerc told the media, including The Race. “[He] always tried to make me feel better whenever I’m going through a tough time. So it’s nice to see how much we’ve grown since I first met him.”

Charles also revealed Seb wasn’t the only one to send him a message of support: “A few of them did. Mostly the experienced ones.”

“Our relationship evolved throughout the years,” Leclerc added about his former Ferrari teammate Vettel. The two were paired up in 2019 and 2020.

“I arrived the first year and I was obviously super-impressed and I think I was probably very weird to him because I was shy and didn’t know what to say when I was with him.”

These two have a special friendship, and we can’t help but remember what a lovely message Sebastian gave Charles when he signed his race helmet at the end of 2020.

“To Charles, you are the most talented driver I came across in 15 years of F1. Don’t waste it. But be sure whatever you do to be happy and smile. Thanks for everything!”

Thanks, Charles. Now we’re crying again.

    Leclercis is doing a Pierre Gasly at Red Bull.

    Skills but wasn’t mentally ready enough at the top at that point in time. Left for a few seasons and did much better in the sister team.

  • José Luis Molero says:

    I guess with “Don’t wast it” Seb Meaned “leave this italian hell as soon as you can”
