Charles Leclerc makes ‘depressing comment’ about his music

Charles Leclerc released his debut track ahead of the 2023 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Charles Leclerc’s fans were taken aback by how humble the 25-year-old was on Thursday, with the Ferrari driver having admitted that he doesn’t think his music is “that good”, following the release of his debut instrumental.

The Monegasque is certainly more than just a Formula 1 driver, with the Ferrari star also being a phenomenal piano player.

Leclerc released his debut instrumental ahead of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, something which clearly gave him some good luck given that he claimed two pole positions and a podium.

His song was actually met with raving reviews, just not from the driver himself!

Leclerc was asked ahead of this weekend’s Miami Grand Prix if he is planning to ‘conquer’ America with his music, something the Monegasque is certainly ready to do, if they like “depressing” tunes.

“If they are ready to be into depressing music then I’m probably the one to go to. But yeah. I mean, my music is not that good. I am a racing driver and I did that for fun,” Leclerc said during the pre-Miami drivers’ press conference.

The Ferrari driver will likely be entering this weekend at the Miami International Autodrome feeling more confident than he has done all season so far, after taking a definite step forward in Baku.

Whilst he couldn’t compete with Red Bull over race distance, the Monegasque was the strongest driver when it came to one lap pace, something which could help him claim a second consecutive pole position in Miami, after locking out the front row with Carlos Sainz last season.

Leclerc will also have some upgrades at his disposal which should at least help the Italians in their fight to be second in the pecking order, with Red Bull simply being “too strong for now”.

“Yeah, it was good. After the first three races it was really bad,” Leclerc said on his Baku podium, as reported by

“We obviously were very unlucky in Bahrain, being in third and having that technical issue already a penalty for the second race. 

“And then the DNF with the incident with Lance in Australia, so it couldn’t be worse. But in Azerbaijan, it went really well. We had our first pole which is great. 

“I think it confirms how strong a car we have, especially in qualifying but then in the race we confirmed a little bit our weaknesses that we still need to work on our race pace as the Red Bull is just too strong for now.”
