Leclerc criticises his fans

“A line that should not be crossed,” says Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc who today criticises his Formula 1 fans. Formula 1 star Charles Leclerc has used the Easter weekend to make a strong appeal to overly intrusive fans who have apparently been besieging his home address for months.

“Somehow in the last few months my private address has become public. This leads to people gathering outside my flat, ringing my doorbell and asking me for pictures and autographs,” the 25-year-old Ferrari driver described in an Instagram story.


“I’m happy to always be there for you and appreciate the support,” Leclerc continued, addressing his followers, “but please respect my privacy and refrain from coming to my house in the future. I’m happy to stop for anyone I meet at the track or on the road, but I won’t come down when you’re at my house.”

Leclerc goes on to explain, “Your support, both in person and on social media, means everything to me, but there’s a line that shouldn’t be crossed.” Leclerc provided the strong message with an Easter greeting to the fans.

Disappointing season for Charles Leclerc & Ferrari

The unpleasant incidents off the track fit in with the disappointing season of the Monegasque and his Scuderia so far. Leclerc is still lagging behind in the Ferrari in 2023. Tenth place in the drivers’ championship and fourth place in the constructors’ championship are clear indications of this.

“Another race without points, which is very frustrating for us – really the worst start to the season,” Leclerc said after the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne.

“I think instead of thinking long term targets, I think just finishing a race without any penalties or issues or whatsoever is a priority,” Leclerc told reporters.

“Then take the momentum and see what’s possible,” he added.

Leclerc takes flak

Former Formula 1 driver Timo Glock did not leave a good mark on the performance of the supposed Ferrari team leader.

“In Charles Leclerc’s case, it shows that after a bad qualifying session, the risk of being involved in an accident in the turmoil is high,” Glock judged in a Sky column.

“That was certainly not the start to the season that Ferrari had hoped for, that we had hoped for. Now it’s up to Frederic Vasseur (Ferrari’s team boss) to quickly set a new direction and get the team back on track.”


Heading to the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Leclerc is sat in 10th place in the Drivers’ standings due to two DNFs in three races, significantly below his teammate Carlos Sainz who is in fifth.
