Leclerc is one of F1’s rising stars and will almost certainly be one of the few drivers to be impacted by the $ 30 million salary cap should it be made official. At the end of the 2019 season, he was awarded a 5-year contract by Ferrari until 2024, which the legendary Italian team did not even offer Michael Schumacher.
