Sei più veloce di Vettel, sei molto più determinato e concentrato! Oggi avrebbero dovuto farti passare Vettel dato che hai alzato il piede dopo una partenza perfetta! Cominciare dalla prima gara a dettare chi è in corsa per il titolo non va bene! Vettel non ha vinto nulla con la Ferrari, anzi, ha perso rovinosamente ed è per questo che non merita nulla! Per me quello che ha più chance sei tu! Forza Charles, sei forte, la prossima volta prenditi un posto in griglia davanti a Seb e metti la tua rossa già avanti! Forza Chrales Forza!!!!

Next time do like the radio isnt working ;)

Nice ! Met lui la pression au N 5 😊. On est pas mal de supporter à avoir vu aujourd’hui ce qui s’est passé sur cette course 👌.

Seb, Charles is fasther than you 👍💪🏎

Sei stato bravo Charles, la macchina non andava come doveva ma tu hai portato a casa il massimo possibile, anche se ti avessero lasciato passare Vettel, non avresti ripreso ripreso verstappen quindi non pensarci. Preciso e molto concentrato alla partenza, hai evitato il disastro in curva 1 arrivando a mettere le ruote sull'erba senza perdere posizioni. Bravo!

T'as déjà montré ta capacité à être plus à l'aise que Sebastian Vettel... Ça en dit long sur ce qui nous attend !! Forzaaaaaa 🇮🇹🏎️🏎️

You should’ve and could’ve finished in front of Seb.

First race and they've already fucked you up..

Bravo Charles! Hai portato a casa il massimo possibile considerando le prestazioni della macchina, hai rispettato gli ordini di scuderia, molto importate per la squadra. Sono sicura che il meglio debba ancora venire. Let's hope for podium in Bahrain, you deserve It all! ❤🏎🇮🇩

Good race, thank you for defending Vettel from behind. That was important for the points and important for the team! Vettel is a fair driver, he would do the same for you #forzaferrari

Non capisco perché non ti lasciano passare su Vettel..

You made a good's just the first race are young and have time..use your head like the gread champions did.. We know you were faster than Seb the last laps.. Keep it up..and keep pushing..but use your head the best is yet to Bharein will be different.

Never take second to Vettel you are better than him!!

Ferrari team orders stink. That was Charles’ position to take, instead they protected Seb’s delicate ego. 😔

Next time your place is before Vettel... your pace was so many faster.... fucking team orders

Don’t worry Charles, you were much faster at the end of the race. They will see that soon enough but FairPlay you were more professional than most drivers would have been. It will come, keep pushing!

Good race Charles you demostrate tha you are faster than Sebastián

Charles you gotta race for you man! Don't let them tell you how to race! Instead show them how racing is really done!

Bravo quand même monsieur Leclerc, pour une première c'est pas si mal. Efficacité et obstination surtout... Premier des rookies c'est beau déjà... Allez Leclerc allez.....

You did very Well, i see a bright F1 future for you, i saw it last year, and i see it now again, go for it, keep pushing and the rewards will come...🍀🍀 From a Hamilton fan😉

It’s sad Ferrari wouldn’t let you fight with seb.

U did pretty well this weekend... don be too harsh on yourself... I believe when u get to know the car better u can exploit the best out of it... just last like year when u start with Sauber! More points, podiums and wins coming soon! 💪

So angry they made you back off 😡

Don't be let down by Ferrari strategists. Things happen but solid start for this season!

In future I hope you may overtake your teammate, if you are faster than Sebastian! ;)

Fitting right in at Ferrari ... they didn’t even need to tell you not to pass seb, you asked them 🤣 I may not be a racing driver but I know what one is ... do you?

Saperti a Maranello ci rende orgogliosi! Complimentissimi per i primi test effettuati! Ho buoni propositi e formidabili sensazioni per il mondiale! Forza Charles

Bravo Charles , j'en connais qui sont fiers de toi ! 😍 Forza Ferrari ! 👊

Charles credo fermamente in te inizia scrivere la storia di questo sport. Sei un fenomeno💪

A tutto gas....dacci dentro come sai fare tu. Incrociamo le dita.

Forza Charly ! Et oublie pas Jules ! Tes la dernière étoiles qui puisse le faire briller aussi !

Future World Champion 💪

Nous te souhaitons le meilleur début de préparation. . Reste toi même et affûte ta flèche d'attaque ..

Go Charles!! Go win in Australia!, show ferrari your more than Vettel, I’m sure you will win this championship!!! 💪🏻🏎🏆

Believe in Charles. Bring it home!

The Next world f1 champion

T’as réussi Charles à faire un chrono aussi bien, même meilleur que Vettel, ce qui montre au moins que tu te sent bien à l’aise et avec un bon ressenti de la F1 !! 👏👏 + que hâte de te voir face à Vettel alias ouin ouin Forzaa Charles !!

Donnes nous autant de plaisir que tu en prends Charles!! Forza Ferrari et #JB17

Why Charles? Why? That was so pitiable and ridiculous. :( I'm disappointed in you!

Even a regular driver could win with that kind of a car, which Vettel is clearly not. I hope Leclerc beats his ass this year, and hes gone for good from f1.

Prova a stare dietro i due galli per 20/25 giri, senza rischiare niente, vanno in crisi da soli. Vola campione

Bravo Charles! I'm glad you're happy with this amazing car! Can't wait for the season to start! ❤

Charles sei un grande è stata un'emozione fantastica vederti finalmente nella macchina che meriti, crediamo in te e non vediamo l ora di vederti in pista a Melbourne! Forza campione!!! Forza Ferrari!!

Let's take a step forward this week, because as you have said Mercedes are carrying about 200kg of sand and we need to make sure we're in a position to put the pressure on.

Go Charles !! #Forza_Ferrari #Lec_16

Can’t wait to see you winning races an the championship 🏁

Im hoping Ferrari treat you as fairly as they do with Seb. Please also wipe the floor with Seb this season 🔥

Can't wait to see Charles and Seb bring home the championships.

Good job man!! The most important thing u told is that this car is easy to drive so.. we could have a lot of fun during the season 😁 remember that is a sport and has to be funny so, enjoy it 😉😍

Non ti fare intimidire da vettel ed hamilton dimostragli chi è il più veloce 🚗🚀🚀

Forza Ferrari, i truly believe you and Vettel will be an unbeatable combination this season, i believe you will re-light the fire inside Seb's desire to race otherwise you will surpass him and hopefully it's a friendly teammate battle throughout the year

grande Charles, sovverti la gerarchia presente nel team, puoi farlo solo con i risultati... io ci credo!

Good luck man, not a big Ferrari fan but really like to see you do well 👍

Forza! Con tranquillità e serenità mosterai il tuo talento.

Dai Charls! Umiliali tutti! Hai la mia stima! Forza Ferrari!

I like F1cars from 1999-2004years. They was most beautiful as for me)))

A modern design with a modern lineup of drivers. This season is going to be one for the history books by the looks of things
