It’s always exciting for fans to see one of the top F1 stars close up and Charles Leclerc’s presence makes Autosport International a ‘must attend’ on January 12th. I have known him for a few years now and like him immensely. He is a great personality in our sport. He has a mature racing brain allied to astonishing speed and there’s no doubt he has all the tools to challenge for the 2020 World Championship. So what better way to kick off the 70th anniversary year of both F1 and Autosport?
Leclerc will attend the last day of the show on Sunday.
