Although he has often shown the full extent of his talent through various circuits around the world, Charles Leclerc has always been unlucky at home in Monaco. In three participations in his national Grand Prix, the Monegasque has never reached the finish. Collision with Brendon Hartley in 2018 when he was wearing Alfa Romeo colors, retirement in 2019 after a daring overtaking attempt on Nico Hulkenberg, not at the start in 2021 despite pole position, the current championship leader did not enjoyed great success on the Rock.
This Sunday, he took advantage of the Monaco Historic Grand Prix to do some driving there with an old Ferrari, the 312 B3 used by Niki Lauda in 1974 a few weeks after having tested Gilles Villeneuve’s 312 T4 at Fiorano. The opportunity for him to offer a small show to the spectators present on the spot. But once again, Charles Leclerc did not escape the “Monegasque curse”.

After taking his first bearings under the wise advice of the mechanics, Charles Leclerc put on his suit for his demonstration. The beginning of his tour went well, the end a little less well. The local indeed badly negotiated his arrival at La Rascasse and lost the rear of the Italian who ended his race against the barrier prolonging his bad series in the streets of the Principality. Welcomed by Jacky Ickx as he got out of the car, the Monegasque couldn’t believe it. ” No, but I lost the brakes. I braked, the pedal was hard and it went to the floorhe explained to the Belgian who knew what had happened to the Ferrari driver. I was lucky to have it at that time, because I think if it happened in another place it wouldn’t have been pretty. »

” When you thought you had already had the bad luck of the world in Monaco and you lost the brakes at La Rascasse with one of the most emblematic Ferraris in history…” he later wrote on Twitter, preferring to laugh after his new misadventure in his land. Next May 29 during the F1 Grand Prix of Monaco will try to put an end to this negative spiral to finally see the arrival of its national meeting.
When you thought you already had all the bad luck of the world in Monaco and you lose the brakes into rascasse with one of the most iconic historical Ferrari Formula 1 car. 🙃🔫
