Charles Leclerc has opened about his possible reason that would lead him to retire from Formula 1. The 25-year-old Monegasque made his debut with Sauber in 2018, and ever since has remained in the headlines, and is widely popular for pushing his limits, and improving strength to strength. Since F1 drivers are known for jaw-dropping speeds that they chase, Leclerc has recently said that he will retire from the sport the day he fears these high speeds.
Speaking in an interview, Leclerc has said that the day he starts fearing the high speeds, he won’t have any other option but to retire from Formula 1. Considering the fact that the F1 drivers register speeds that range to 150mph, they don't have any option to get scared. Leclerc also said that as drivers, they need to trust their cars, and ensure that all the safety measures are in place. In an interview, he said, “We have different systems to run safely. Also, for this reason, I focus only on speed and how to bring the car to the limit. And sometimes, it happens to go bumping. When I start thinking about danger, I think I’ll retire.”
Not only this, Leclerc also opened up about the pressure he has been a part of the reputed brand Ferrari. He said that he needs to be extremely cautious and responsible as his slightest mistake can end up in the disappointment of several people. He further added that since being a part of Ferrari was always his dream, he is ready to take any sort of pressure. Notably, Leclerc started his stint with Ferrari by defeating four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel in both seasons they were in the same team.
