Charles Leclerc reveals Ferrari demand amid contract rumours

Charles Leclerc's current contract with Ferrari will expire at the end of the 2024 season.

Charles Leclerc has made it known that he’d like to compete one day in the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours, a race which Ferrari famously won this year.

Ferrari claimed victory in the hypercar category, which saw the Italian manufacturer claim the overall victory on their return to the top class.

A special livery in recognition of the win is rumoured to be introduced at the Italian Grand Prix, which is just around the corner.

Given how Leclerc is Ferrari’s golden child, the Monegasque would presumably be able to compete for them at Le Mans in the future, should he wish.

Leclerc would love to be in a team with his brother, Arthur Leclerc, something he’s thought about “many times”.

Arthur is part of the Ferrari Driver Academy and is currently competing in Formula 2.

“Oh, yes…many times,” Leclerc told

“It’s definitely something I want to do one day, and with my brother for sure. But I don’t know if this will happen.”

Alongside himself and his brother, Leclerc also wants to see Antonio Fuoco in his team, with the current World Endurance Championship driver being “one of my best friends”.

“There’s Antonio also, he’s part of the Ferrari family,” said Leclerc. “He is one of my best friends and we grew up together. He is already training for that day!

“Let’s see if it’s possible and if it works out with all of our plans, because we obviously all race in different categories. But maybe one day.”

Leclerc was actually in the garage at Le Mans back in June to watch the Italian manufacturer storm to victory, in what was an emotional affair for the entire team.

The 25-year-old revealed that the experience of being at Le Mans had “been crazy”, but that he was “extremely proud” of what was achieved by Ferrari.

“It feels absolutely amazing, obviously especially having a Ferrari winning,” Leclerc told Eurosport. “It’s incredible after a return after so many years. A very special edition.

“Unlucky for the second Ferrari, we had a small impact I think with a smaller rock, on one radiator, so that made us lose a lot of time. But I was here to support and I’m really happy anyway that Ferrari won and it was an incredible experience.

“I’m just extremely proud of what Ferrari has done today, it’s been crazy.”
