Anche se sono un'Alfista, sarò una tua sostenitrice accanita nella tua avventura in Ferrari grazie per quello che hai fatto in Sauber Alfa Romeo ci hai regalato un sogno❤

And we had more than enough of Sebastian in red.

And we can't wait to see him winning with the Red#16 :D

Oh Charles, I can't count how much time I've waited to see you behind an F1 car but behind a Ferrari? That fills my heart of joy. I met you once back in 2012 when you raced karts in Braga, Portugal. We were both so young and he couldn't talk English very well 😂 but I just had that feeling that you would race in F1. So happy for you, Charles. A big hug from Braga 🇵🇹 #forzaferrari

Come on Charles !!! Can't wait to see you in Melbourne. #Forza_Ferrari. #LEC_16

Basta giocare...testa sulle spalle!!DOBBIAMO VINCERE!!! Go CHARLES!!!

Ben arrivato Charles!!!!

You have talent left to be the next F1 legend. I wish you good luck in 2019. #focus

Nous déçois pas mon gars hein, t'as pris la place de Kimi quand même

Vai Carletto! Hai un grosso peso tra le spalle, e dovrai attenerti alle regole, però adesso pensa a goderti il posto in Ferrari. Hai ottenuto buoni risultati in Sauber. Adesso con la rossa potrai fare meglio!

Sarò uno dei tuoi tifosi più incalliti, spacca tutto Charles!!

The red suits you, my mate. I hope you lead it to your first podium, victory and championship next season! No matter what happens tomorrow, I'll still support you.

How many days till Melbourne?? I can't wait!!

This car suits you a lot ! And I hope to see you again Charles, last time I saw you I was in Monaco and you were on a scooter 😅

Soon we will enjoy Ferrari again

Love this... can’t wait to see you at Silverstone #champion Also glad you are back in red, I can wear my Prema Racing t shirt again!

Come On Charles 💪 Que la saison commence vite pour montrer ton potentiel! Ce rouge te va si bien 😜😜

Gonna be a deadly combo!

Tellement hâte! Vivement Melbourne !!! Go Charles!

God speed Leclerc. Do well.

7th and other very strong points ! Looking back at the race, I think the strategy was the right one but we have just been unfortunate to have the Virtual Safety Car at that exact moment.
Anyway, thank you so much to all @sauberf1team for the amazing work. This season is a season I will always remember ❤️

World championship contender next year fingers crossed. I may be a brit but you are one of the two drivers I support and neither is a brit

This time next year you will fight for the victory :)

Loved watching you today. You kept up with the top dogs and held your own. You have an amazing future ahead and I look forward to watching you grow 😘 🇦🇺

Brilliant Charles! So happy :D makes up for a bad day for Ferrari :)

Amazing performance, Charles -well done! Can't wait to see you next year in Ferrari.

Winner of class b is all that's achievable given the performance/ budget of the top three teams. Superb . 👍

Great Job, Charles!👍 I've seen you fighting to defend your position, overtaking other cars that had demonstrated to be more performing than Alfa .... and, at the end, you have arrived in the best position after the 3 top teams. Really great!!!! 👏👏👏 Yup have contributed to better also the car, during all these months, working with the team: you are a great race-driver.

Well done charles next year you can take it against Seb:)

You are A Future Ferarri Formula 1 World Champion

Fantastic result. Congratulations. Looking forward to Japan next week.

Counting down the days until I see you in Ferrari red on the 2019 grid. You are going to smash it next year! I can't wait to celebrate every podium with you. Go Charles Leclerc !!

Quoi te dire à part… FELICITATIONS !! Superbe week-end 👌 et en plus, pour une fois… tu es satisfait 🙌😜, c'est le top 😉😎🎆

Carlo sbrigati a venire in Ferrari perché ho bisogno di ritrovare soddisfazioni.. tutto il paddock ha paura! Il 2019 è tuo 💪🏻👍🏻🍀

une superbe course un grand BRAVO pour ta superbe progression cette année et je te souhaite le meilleur pour dimanche prochain !!

Charles Leclerc quando scali troppo in fretta c'è una protezione se fai troppi giri motore ? Ti rifiuta mai la marcia ?

Are you going to have a different racing helmet for Japan? in respect for Jules Bianchi. Never forgotten.

Excellent race. Great to see your professionalism, still putting in your best for Sauber. Great going Charles keep the momentum up and next season it'll be podiums and wins you're fighting for.

Isn't that strange that this time next year P7 will be disappointing, Charles? 😂 anyway, great job, amazing racecraft, fully deserve that red car for the next season!
