The year Leclerc fully revealed his star status
By:

In the latest feature in our series looking back on the 2010s, we revisit Charles Leclerc's sensational Formula 2 season - where he strode among on-track highs and lows, as well as tragedy away from motorsport, to earn a place on the Formula 1 grid

It might seem odd, given his ultimately irresistible rise to the front of the Formula 1 grid on the back of a superb junior career, but until the 2017 Formula 2 season, Charles Leclerc had not fully confirmed his superstar potential.

After all, plenty of junior drivers with influential and experienced backers don't shine as brightly as their early promise suggests.
