Formula 1’s summer break started following the conclusion of the Belgian Grand Prix, where Leclerc finished third.

It was a positive result for the 25-year-old to take into the summer break, having endured a disappointing first half of 2023.

His rostrum at Spa-Francorchamps was just his third of the season, whereas in 2022 the Ferrari star had claimed five podiums – including three victories – in the opening 12 races.

Most of his 2023 disappointments have been due to Ferrari’s car for this season, which has proven to be very inconsistent.

The Maranello-based outfit have varied from being the second strongest team at some races, to being the fifth fastest in others.

Spa was arguably one of their best showings of the season though and gives Leclerc and Ferrari some confidence ahead of the second half of the year.

Leclerc hasn’t just been dealing with a challenging car, he’s also had to put up with speculation over his future.

It’s been reported that the Monegasque has signed a two-year extension, taking him to the end of 2026.

However, his deal reportedly includes the option for an additional three seasons, taking him to the end of 2029.

Leclerc has quashed the reports though and has insisted that contract negotiations are yet to get underway.

“The discussions about the contract haven’t started yet, but everything is clear to me, I love Ferrari and I want to win here. That is my priority,” Leclerc recently said, as reported by Italian publication Corriere dello Sport.

“Apart from the love for Ferrari that has always existed and continues to exist, I share many things with Fred [Vasseur, team principal], and many of them have to do with plans for the future. We are aligned. I know what is coming and I have faith.”
