‘How are you so beautiful?’ Charles Leclerc answers tough question

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz are second and fifth, respectively, in the Drivers' Standings.

Charles Leclerc faced a tough question from a fan at an event involving him and Ferrari team-mate, Carlos Sainz.

The Monegasque started his career in 2018 with Sauber, and his performances were so impressive, that he was promoted to Ferrari for the 2019 campaign, replacing Kimi Raikkonen, who went the other way.

Leclerc has since won five races in red, two of them arriving in his first season with the Scuderia, before another three have materialised in 2022.

The 24-year-old won two of the first three races this season, but his only victory since came at the Austrian Grand Prix.

Sainz signed with the Italian team last year following two seasons with McLaren, and he stood on the podium four times as he finished ahead of his team-mate in the standings.

The Spaniard took his maiden win and pole position at the British Grand Prix in July, but four wins for Ferrari have emerged among 12 for the Red Bull pair of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez.

The Austrian team have a comfortable lead in the teams’ championship as a result, while the Dutchman looks all set to successfully defend his world championship from last year.

Ferrari are set to go 14 consecutive seasons without a world title, but this has not stopped smiles beaming at Maranello due to the improvements made this season.

There were more smiles when Leclerc was asked about his appearance.

“How are you so beautiful?” he was asked, before Sainz whistled his approval.

“Thanks to my parents I guess, I don’t know,” joked Leclerc.

“You can ask my mum what is the secret, I don’t do anything special.”

“He does, he does,” quipped Sainz.

Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel also amusingly referenced Leclerc’s good looks at the Italian Grand Prix when speaking about the attention the five-time race winner got from the tifosi during their time as team-mates.
