One of Ferrari's standout performers in recent times has been their 2019 acquisition, 23-year-old Charles Leclerc. The Monaco driver is known for his speed and fearless driving style that has seen Ferrari garner a fair share of podium finishes. Although he had a forgettable 2020 with his teammate, Sebastian Vettel, the racing team sees him as one for the future. Such was his string of impressive performances that Ferrari awarded him with a contract till 2024.
The question invariably shifts to Leclerc's net worth and according to Celebrity Net Worth, the Monegasque racing driver is estimated to be worth $12 million. According to Essentially Sports, he has endorsements with Richard Mille, Scuderia Ferrari, and Giorgio Armani that add to the moolah he rakes in every year. His annual salary is estimated to be around $3,500,000 per year.
Talking about his extension, Leclerc said: “Extremely happy to announce that I will be staying with Ferrari for five more years. I’m so grateful to be driving for such a team." He continued: "I’ve learned so much during this first year with the team and it is a great starting point to build a strong relationship for the years ahead."
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto said: "With each passing race this year, our wish to extend our contract with Charles became ever more self-evident and the decision means he will now be with us for the next five seasons. We are very pleased that he will be with us for many years to come and I'm sure that together we will write many new pages in the history of the Prancing Horse."
In 2019, Leclerc finished fourth in the Driver standings with 264 points. He registered ten podium finishes, two wins, four fastest laps, and seven pole positions, the most by any driver that season. The following season was a disappointing one as he ended eighth with just 98 points. This season, Leclerc will have a new teammate in Carlos Sainz. The Spaniard raced for McLaren the previous season and he now replaces Sebastian Vettel, who will move to Aston Martin.
Ahead of the new season, Leclerc said he does not want to get in a "stupid" situation with Sainz. “We are about the same age, we have the same interests,” he said of Sainz in an interview with Code Sport Monaco.“It promises to be a lot of fun. We get on really well and we can’t wait to be able to fight on the track, without doing too much stupid things together. It’s going very, very well with Carlos. I don’t think I’ve spent as much time with him as with any other team-mate. We are very motivated."
