Ferrari has not won a Formula One title since its constructors’ title in 2008. The last drivers’ championship was won by Kimi Raikkonen, who took the crown in 2007.
Leclerc hopes the new car can end the wait for Ferrari’s fans.
‘The goal is to win, clearly,’ Leclerc said at the launch event. ‘Winning is what motivates me and the team. I’m excited to get back in the car and try to win that championship.’

‘Everything feels good mate,’ Leclerc radioed.
