As one of the brightest young talents in Formula 1, Charles Leclerc has already had a number of standout performances across his career.

From taking his first podium in just his second race to winning races and claiming pole positions, there have been plenty of highlights along the way.

However, when it comes to the top three races of Charles Leclerc’s career, there are a few that stand out above the rest.

1: The 2019 Italian Grand Prix – Charles Leclerc 1st

For Ferrari fans, the 2019 Italian Grand Prix was a day to remember.

Not only did they have a chance to see their beloved team in action on home soil, but they also had a local hero in the form of Charles Leclerc who was looking to do something special.

And that’s exactly what he did.

After claiming pole position in a thrilling qualifying session, Leclerc managed to hold off both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas in the opening laps.

However, it wasn’t long before he came under pressure from his teammate Sebastian Vettel who was on fresher tires.

In a tense battle for the lead, the two Ferrari drivers went wheel-to-wheel before Leclerc finally managed to pull away.

Despite a few wobbles along the way, Leclerc held on to claim his second win of the season, sparking jubilant scenes in the Ferrari garages and among the Tifosi in the stands.

For the young Monegasque, it was a moment that will live long in the memory.

2: The 2019 Bahrain Grand Prix – Charles Leclerc 3rd

Just a few weeks before his victory in Italy, Charles Leclerc had come agonizingly close to winning his first race in Bahrain.

After qualifying on pole position, he had dominated the early stages of the race, pulling out a substantial gap to the chasing pack.

However, disaster struck when his car suffered an engine issue, dropping him down the order and putting his chances of a win in serious jeopardy.

Despite the setback, Leclerc refused to give up and proceeded to mount an incredible comeback drive, gradually reeling in his rivals one by one.

In a heart-stopping finale, Leclerc maintained his position crossing the line to take 3rd place.

It was a remarkable performance that showcased both his raw speed and his indomitable spirit, and it set the tone for what would prove to be a breakout season.

3: The 2018 Azerbaijan Grand Prix – Charles Leclerc 6th

Although Charles Leclerc wasn’t driving for one of the top teams during his rookie season in 2018, he still managed to make an impression with a number of impressive drives.

Perhaps the finest of these came at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, where he secured his first ever points finish with a stunning sixth place.

Driving for the Sauber team, Leclerc had to contend with the likes of Fernando Alonso, Sergio Perez, and Nico Hulkenberg in a tight battle for the lower points positions.

However, he showed remarkable maturity and composure throughout the race, biding his time and making smart overtakes when the opportunity presented itself.

Despite the challenges, Leclerc remained focused and determined, with a clear vision of what he wanted to achieve.

In the end, his persistence paid off, and he was rewarded with a well-deserved haul of points that signaled the beginning of a bright future in Formula 1.

Conclusion

While Charles Leclerc’s career is still in its early stages, there’s no doubt that he has already achieved a lot.

From his stunning comeback drive in Bahrain to his heroics in front of the Tifosi at Monza, there have been plenty of standout moments along the way.

However, it’s the three races mentioned above that truly stand out as the top performances of his career so far.

Whether it’s his first win in Bahrain, his breakthrough drive in Azerbaijan, or his unforgettable victory in front of the Ferrari faithful in Italy, each of these races showcased the raw talent and fighting spirit that make Charles Leclerc one of the most exciting drivers on the grid today.
