After the departure of Sebastian Vettel from Ferrari, Charles Leclerc remains the only driver in their line-up who is a proven race winner. With the team going through one of their toughest periods ever, the last thing they would want according to some would be to lose Leclerc to a rival team. Future F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali who was once a key managerial figure at Ferrari has given his thoughts while speaking to La Gazetta

I'm your host Dillon Shelley and first up on Formula World:
Is Ferrari At Risk Of Losing Charles Leclerc?
Domenicali began by reflecting on the period when he got the offer to become F1’s CEO
“When I got the offer from Liberty I spent intense days, so to speak but some trains run once in a lifetime. Saying no would have been really difficult, and so on the one hand, as an Italian, I’m very proud of it”
He accepts that it will be a challenge but pointed out why he has an advantage
“On the other, I know it will be a great challenge. But I know the environment well, and this is an advantage”
He then turned his attention to Ferrari and their former driver and four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel
“For Vettel it was obviously a tough year. Imagine you are four times world champion and even before the start of the season you hear that you will no longer be driving for the team next year. That's terrible”
Domenicali concluded his words by looking at the possibility of Ferrari losing Leclerc
“If Leclerc has a competitive car in the short term, Ferrari has nothing to fear. Then they won't lose him. If Ferrari again arrives with a bad car, it could be a problem. He could lose confidence and momentum just like that”

Fast Feed
Former F1 driver Romain Grosjean has confirmed that his “seven fingers” are “back to normal” and has exclaimed that it’s one “hell of a Xmas present”
Former F1 driver Mark Webber thinks that McLaren’s new driver Daniel Ricciardo “drove awesome this year” “because he really felt valued at the team”
He also thinks that Ricciardo will “feel that again at McLaren next year”
He further suggested that F1 needs Ricciardo “more towards the front” as “he’s a guy that needs to be on the podiums. He celebrates success, he celebrates what” F1 “should be about”
McLaren’s technical director James Key has confirmed that they’ve “got plenty of developments to look at and lots of new concepts floating around too”
He added that “the development freeze bought everyone a bit of thinking time. It allowed” them “to take a step back and really analyze the data and what” they’ve done
Williams team principal Simon Roberts “can see the advantages, but” they “don't want to become a B team”
He further explained that they “want to keep” their “independence, but” they “want to be more competitive”
So, for them “looking forward”, they “are open to extending a relationship, but it would be focused on supporting” them “where” they “think” they “need help”
“In simple terms, if” they “are good at something and” they “can do it fast, then” they “should focus on that”
“If there is something” they “cannot do very well, then” they “should be prepared to buy it from whoever has it available”
Former F1 driver Jolyon Palmer feels that Lewis Hamilton’s “dominance made the running at the front more predictable than F1 and the fans would have liked” in 2020
Renault’s Esteban Ocon thinks that “the whole season” his “development has been very strong and” he’s “happy how” they “were able to finish the season”
He further explained that “it was a lot stronger than at the beginning of the season and” he certainly noticed that he had “more confidence and speed than at the beginning of the year”
Ferrari’s Sports director Laurent Mekies has divulged that “in Barcelona”, they “quickly realized that” they “had to be seriously concerned about some aspects of performance”

If Ferrari doesn’t produce a good car soon, should they be concerned about losing Leclerc?

They should be concerned, that is how it should be. Isn't even Mercedes worried about Hamilton? Charles Leclerc has a good personality, meaning good media presence with technical and driving skill. Ferrari just needs to develop their cars better and to be able to manage the data better at race day.

Leclerc is firmly within the Ferrari group. Red Bull won’t take him, and Mercedes won’t take him - so he’s got nowhere successful to go to. In the same way that Max would likely struggle to get a decent seat in another team. Ferrari don’t want him, and neither do Mercedes. The top teams have their main drivers sorted for now and the future - Mercedes are focussed on Russell.

From what was seen over the year.... Charles Leclerc proved that me could make the car work better than expected. That does not mean he would accept the same car or worse this year, but if he were to leave the question would be would he and does Aston Martin try to pair Vettel and Leclerc again. Surely they wont keep Lance Stroll if he can't make the care work again this year. That will put Leclerc in competition with Perez if things dont go well for him in the season...... Interesting question

I think this is more a PR move to put some pressure on the performance team currently dev the future car than a genuine concern. Charles obviously could look at other teams but given his devotion to the brand/team it would need a dire situation in order to really happen. This is not the case, for now.

I would have thought Domenicali to be more professional now that he is CEO and kept his focus on his F1 job at hand rather than delving into taking underhanded shots at Ferrari. Not more than a few days into his new role & he's making such sharp comments about his ex team and their drivers.

Hopefully Ferrari will have a more competitive car next year. Have been following F1 since the 1980’s and agree with fans being bored with Hamilton winning, just as we were when Schumacher consistently won races. The last but one race without Hamilton competing was the most enjoyable race of the season by far from a fan’s point of view!

Maybe? Also, must remember that outside of MSC, (Kimi's in 09 is an outlier), how far back to you need to go for a genuinely competitive Ferrari? 15 years? This isn't new territory but we live in a world of hype and over exaggeration (everything we criticize Italian media of doing against Ferrari...) Tradition of the team, the prancing horse, the icon; this is what calls drivers to the team and then they roll the dice on hoping for a good car. MSC had a magnetic magical pull for the team and improved the car as well with his sheer talent and stubbornness. Historically speaking, take MSC years out of the equation and it doesn't make for pretty reading post early 80s, could almost say their first and only peak pre-MSC was in the 70s.

Of course Ferrari should be concerned. Most F1 teams ditch drivers on the regular when they don't live up to the expectations... or sometimes even for other more shady reasons. I don't see why Leclerc should be somehow tied to a team that doesn't provide. It needs to go both ways, is what I'm saying. Drivers are no slaves and once the contract doesn't bind them anymore, there should be no obligation to stick with the team when it's unable to provide race-winning tech. That is arguably the main part of their job, to provide a competitive car for the driver.

Charles is without a doubt a world-class driver and one of the best young talents the sport has ever seen. If Ferrari keep going this way of course he would (and should) at least look elsewhere. The only question is where could he go? Even if Lewis retires after next year (which I doubt) there is at most one open seat at Merc, since they’re going to pick up Russell for 2022. And if Lewis does leave then you can bet Max is going to jump at the opportunity for his seat. Max and Charles are both unbelievably talented but the problem is that with Merc being the only game in town right now there aren’t enough top-level seats for all the top-level drivers (Danny Ric has the same problem). I really hope 2022 makes things more competitive.

For me, it all depends on Ferrari?. They do not work like a team should do, that goes to management. To tell your star driver that he's fired before the season begins, is not professional (Vettel)2020. So far 2020 has seen progress with Charles, having Sainz on board can only make the team stronger. If Charles can keep getting race wins, he's better off staying put.

Leclerc is NOT as talented as Ferrari thinks. He is a complainer when things go just a little of phase and then blames everyone else instead of putting his head down and be part of the solution. A lot more talented drivers have come and gone over the last few years but never got the chance to drive for a top team.

Ferrari is obviously sandbagging the team for 2020 and 2021 so they get much more development and testing time for 2022, since just throwing money at it won't be legal anymore. They're aiming ALL their arrows on the 2022 changes and going forward from there.

Ferrari's problems are much bigger than any driver. I don't see Leclerc as the savior such as Schumi when the last time the Scuderia were in deep $hi#. Everyone knows Schumi was more than just a driver, he was involved in pretty much everything. They need to get their act together before worrying about losing a driver.

I am so f****** done with supporting Ferrari. If they somehow end up wasting Leclerc, a man who has shown absolute brilliance in times of tragedy and difficulties, and joins the likes of so many greats who could not clean up the sh!t that is Ferrari, like Mansell, Prost, Villeneuve, Vettel, Alonso, Massa, and so on, then Ferrari does not deserve to be in Formula 1, they do not deserve their success and history. If you ignore Schumacher and Raikkonen, then it has been 42 f****** years of the same bulls**t story. Consistently terrible performances for their large budget, wasting great talents, management that some of the most hatable and unlikable I have ever seen in my life, and consistently embarrassing and f****** themselves up at every opportunity. We were lucky to have Schumacher, but those days are now over, and with the direction Formula 1 is heading to help improve the show, I cannot see Ferrari recovering anytime soon. A fitting way for Formula 1’s biggest underachiever in its history to go out. What a shame. F*** Ferrari, and leave the sport now to save yourself from further embarrassment.

I feel like like Merc will jump at the chance to grab him and as a Ferrari fan i hope not but he is a great marketing asset and along with his talent why not. It's not like Merc has a track record of providing their juniors a chance in the first team. Going into the next era they will have a seat left after Hamilton leaves so they would want the next best thing.

I don't think Ferrari should be worried about losing the edge nor Leclerc. We all know the problem - their suspension is ruining the balance of the car. HAAS use their suspension and that's their known problem. Vettel has claimed to be unable to find the balance of the car which is what one would expect from that suspension. However Leclerc is now able to use that and the departure of Vettel to fight well in his contract terms. They will be more desperate to retain him, and other drivers will be less likely to want to join Ferrari. So Leclerc would be able to leverage that for a better contract.

Yes there is a cost cap, but there are few teams that have the financial stability of Ferrari, or the depth of talent. Leclerc has a multi year contract so I don't think leaving will be his choice, but he would have to ask himself this question, how many drivers have left Ferrari and gone on to win a world championship. I believe the answer is zero.

Where would Leclerc go? Red Bull is not going to take him, and Mercedes already have their next top driver lined up. Even if Aston Martin do brilliantly, he'd have to wait for Vettel to retire, and the same with Alonso at Renault. Not to mention that he's got a very strong emotional tie to Ferrari. Unless circumstances change at any of the other top teams, I can't see him wanting to leave.
