Charles Leclerc looked the stronger of the two Ferrari drivers in Bahrain, prompting many to wonder if Ferrari should support their new driver in a bid for 2019 championship success.
Having started 2019 claiming that 4-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel would be the focus of the team attention this year, a claim backed up by team order instructions during the Australian Grand Prix, Charles Leclerc is doing all within his power to change the minds of the Ferrari management in the early stages of the season.
At just 21 years of age, Leclerc certainly has plenty to learn about Formula One racing at this point in his career, however what the youngster lacks in experience he is more than making up for in raw pace and tenacity, easily showing himself as the form man in the team during the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend. With a performance that made team leader Vettel look outclassed pretty much all weekend, is it time for Ferrari to reconsider their decision to put all their eggs in a Sebastian Vettel shaped basket, and instead get behind the young man from Monaco before the season progresses too far?
Do you think Ferrari should look to Vettel, Leclerc or both drivers in equal measure as they look for a first WDC since 2007?
