Ferrari gives Charles Leclerc his winning F1 car
Ferrari Formula One driver Charles Leclerc has a new car in his garage — the one he raced to victory from pole position in Belgium and Italy in 2019.
The 23-year-old Monaco resident posted pictures on Instagram on Friday of the SF90 under a red Ferrari covering in the back of a transporter and then safely indoors.
"Something special just arrived home," he said.
Ferrari replied on Twitter by saying "we hope you enjoy it."
The back-to-back 2019 race wins are the only ones Leclerc has chalked up so far in Formula One with the Italian team drawing a blank last season.
The victory at Monza was Ferrari's first at their home circuit since 2010.
Leclerc joined Ferrari in 2019, his second season, and swiftly out-performed four-times world champion team mate Sebastian Vettel. The German left at the end of 2020 and has been replaced by Spaniard Carlos Sainz.
