F1 Podcast: Is Leclerc ready to challenge Verstappen for the title?

1 min read

Charles Leclerc's ability to fight for a world championship is the focus of the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Following his victory in the Monaco Grand Prix, Josh Suttill and Ben Anderson join Edd Straw to evaluate his evolution as a driver and the strengths and weaknesses he would bring to a world championship fight - if and when that happens either this year or in the future. 

The significance of that Monaco win, his development as a driver and the meaning of the oft-cited disparity between the number of pole positions (24) and wins (6) are also delved into.

We also reflect on the role team principal Fred Vasseur has played in helping Leclerc work better with the team and the question of whether the Ferrari really could pose a serious threat to Red Bull in 2024. And we also look ahead to 2025 and the battle Leclerc faces with new team-mate Lewis Hamilton.
