Great job controlling everything in a pretty dull race, couldn't do any better than that in these circumstances! You've shown you've got the real skills to become the first driver of Ferrari, and you're still so young. Can't wait for you to win a race this season, should happen soon! Grande Charles

Don't beat yourself up. Have a good sleep and tomorrow is another day. Looking forward to your race.🏎🏁🤞

Charles! Youre a future champ! But humble today. From this day and future i will support you! Youre a great guy!👍🏻

Sometimes we forget that is only your second year in Formula 1, thats how good you are. Tomorow is a new day and no matter what you always have our support. All the best from Portugal

On a confiance en toi. Les meilleurs se sont tous plantés. La faute est humaine et n'enlève rien à ton talent, ta détermination, et ton perfectionnisme. Savoir se remettre en question est un gage de qualité, que peu de tes collègues ont. Daghe Charles 💪💪🙏🙏🙏🇮🇩

Yes I agree with you Lecrerc, they wear you soft tyres and they want you still to be 1st while all rest use super soft, your mistake is less then you thing ;)

Charles you are a born winner keep calm brother good things are about to come :)

Loving the wholesome support from people who can appreciate a pure talent and a genuinely good bloke who isn’t up himself. Learn from this Charles and let it be your armour. Forza Ferrari! 🐎

Good luck my friend tomorrow. Ii hope too make a good race 🙏🙏🙏

Wish you all the best for tomorrow!

One day has gone by… Will the double stupid and the harsh self-inflicted cure bring a podium to Charles? We will see in about four hours… Comments on one his fb pages are mostly encouraging, as they all should be; most of them begin with or contain the “don’t be so hard on yourself, mistakes do occur” wording or general idea. Which is a beautiful way to share love, the one we learnt when we were babies: giving and receiving a warm and protective hug helped in feeling better. Yet, Hamilton tells us another story in the interview he released to the journalist of the “News” section of the iApp Formula 1®, moments after the end of qualifying: “ I would be the same” … “That’s how we’re tuned as racing drivers, when it’s your mistake, we’re tough on ourselves. May be a little less when you’re older. But still it’s painful.”… “ Years and years ago I didn’t come out of my room for 2 or 3 days, when I had some experiences like that.” … “He is open about it, because he can get it out and move forwards tomorrow”. Champions have this natural gift to see when other champions are around… Lewis is a champion, all champions recognize other champions, Charles is a champion… A syllogism we love! Daghe Charles!

It's a shame for sure, but your honesty and passion shows that you got the mentality of a champion! Don't be too hard on yourself, everyone makes mistakes. Today doesn't matter, tomorrow is where you can make the difference. Go fight for the podium or maybe even a win! You never know, it's Baku after all 😉

Tutto serve. Ogni campione ha commesso un errore. Ti rialzerai. Chi ti critica poi non salga sul carro nei prossimi anni.

La course c’est demain !!! On a confiance en toi Daghe Charles 💪🇮🇩 !!!!

Come on Charles! We believe in you! It's something that can happen, but as you always say, tomorrow is the race where the points are scored!

One bad qualifying doesn’t define a driver any more than one good one does. Keep pushing! You have a long and successful career ahead of you & many many more successes coming your way! ❤️

Don't beat yourself up. Many world champions have hit the odd wall or 2. Go enjoy the race 🏁🏁🏁🏁

Dont be so hard on yourself Charles. you have had a fine weekend thus far and te strategy was good for the know better than we but surely the track went away more than expected which led to less grip than have had a strong weekend and although a mistake was made, you start in the top 10 on the better tyre with the fastest car throughout all sessions bar q2 and q3. I believe you will have a good race. Have faith young man...its only a mistake if you didnt learn from it...push hard but be wary of that particular corner and kerb. You will win this year, yet, young man. Forza Ferrari!!!

Charles, you’re the breath of fresh air in Formula 1. Your team shouldn’t have sent you in medium tires. No other team had med’s on. Please don’t let these bad strategies hurt your confidence you are a future champ. It will come! Get them tomorrow!

Not useless it's learning & coming back stronger. Race is tomorrow.

Don't be so hard on yourself, tomorrow is race day so give it your all. You can still win this.

Mr. Leclerc, ahead of you lies the path of the champions. It's not easy, it ain't for everybody and only the chosen ones will have the power to walk on it until the end. Focus on every step you have to take and be supportive to yourself. You have a sea of supporters blowing wind in your sails. Be sure that you aren't doing the opposite and keep your head up! If it was easy, anybody could do it! ;) 🏁🥇🇲🇨

Useless is a strong word. You err'd and to err is to be human. You're a fantastic driver and a great person. You'll be on the top step soon. A little adversity and a few lows serve to make you appreciate the highs. Chin up lad. Much love from America.

Don't be too hard on yourself, mistakes happen even to the most experienced. I know you'll do good in race but take care and be safe. Win would be very nice 😁

YOU'RE NOT USELESS. Don't worry! You start on the medium tyres and you were already in Q3. Anything can happen in Baku! Keep pushing 😉👊👊♥️

Don't be so hard on yourself Charles , you did great !! Chin up long race tomorrow plenty of action will happen . We believe in you!

Charles you haven’t posted anything in a long time. Good luck this weekend!

Yeah, very quick. You have pushed a lot. So much that now the wall is in front of you

Dear Charles Leclerc just always remember, not even one third of the races took place yet, with that said, more than two thirds of the races will follow. In other words, you just have to finish the races ahead of Vettel more often than not and you already will defeat him in your first year for Ferrari!!!!! This will be a sensation for most people, but not for me, as I expect you to defeat him already in 2019! Best luck and best wishes Andreas.

Pas de problème tu vas le faire je compte sur toi reste zen tu a le talent je te dit forza Ferrari numéro (16) victoire dimanche a Bakou
