Such is the growing popularity of Ferrari’s rising star, Charles Leclerc, that the Monégasque driver will have his own grandstand at two 2020 races.
22-year-old Leclerc joined Ferrari last season and immediately became a favourite of both the tifosi and the Italian media.
Showing fight even in the face of team orders, Leclerc was not only quick but willing to battle anyone – even his team-mate.
This season, to mark his growing popularity, he will have a grandstand named after him at both the Monaco and French GPs.

Stepping up to Ferrari last season, Leclerc claimed his first grand prix victory at the Belgian GP and followed that up with a win at the Italian race.
He finished the season fourth in the Drivers’ Championship, beating his four-time World Champion team-mate Sebastian Vettel.
That, though, wasn’t the driver’s only honour.
He also was the season’s top qualifier with seven pole positions, more than any other driver.
