Bryan Bozzi recently stepped into the spotlight as Charles Leclerc’s race engineer at Scuderia Ferrari. This unexpected change occurred during the 2024 Formula 1 season, replacing Xavi Marcos, who had been working closely with Leclerc for quite some time.

In a recent post off ‘Junaid#JB17’ he wrote, “Bryan Bozzi, Charles Leclerc’s race engineer: Montreal has long straights followed by combinations of medium-slow corners.”

Charles Leclerc’s Breakthrough Monaco Win

Leclerc’s journey to victory was anything but straightforward. In both 2021 and 2022, he secured pole position in Monaco, only to face technical issues and pit stop challenges that denied him the top step of the podium. But in 2024, he turned the tide and emerged victorious.

Leclerc’s cool and collected drive around the streets of Monaco showcased his maturity and determination. He avoided opening-lap drama, mastered the race restart, and maintained his lead throughout the 78-lap encounter. McLaren’s Oscar Piastri and Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz chased him, but Leclerc held firm.

As Leclerc crossed the finish line, emotions overwhelmed him. Memories of his late father, Hervé Leclerc (a former racing driver who supported Charles’s journey), flooded his mind. Winning in Monaco fulfilled a dream they both shared.

Monaco’s tight and twisty layout demands tire management. Leclerc skillfully preserved his tires, ensuring they lasted the entire race. His pace remained consistent, and in the final laps, he pushed harder to secure the win.

Leclerc’s victory ended a 93-year drought for Monégasque drivers at their home race. His six career wins, 24 pole positions, nine fastest laps, and 35 podiums in Formula 1 make him a force to be reckoned with.
