LeClerc F2 Champ 2017
« on: 1 Dec 2017, 08:55 pm »


Charles LeClerc, the French open wheel racing phenom, was GP3 champ in 2016 and GP2/F2 champ in 2017. He's a Ferrari Academy Driver, destined for Sauber F1 next year. He won the F2 drivers championship this year by taking 8 of 11 poles, and winning 7 of 22 races.

This video is the last lap battle for the win in Abu Dhabi this past weekend, on the final lap of the final race of the season. DRS (drag reduction system) is disabled due to crash on previous lap, so LeClerk does it the hard way:

F2 is crazy fun to watch, it's mostly teenagers stoned on testosterone and ego with 200mph under their toe. There's always something interesting happening as they try to show off for the F1 bosses. LeClerc is the best to come out of GP2, imho... When he someday drives for Ferrari (2019?) I might have to do the unthinkable, root for Ferrari!  :x
