Inside Charles Leclerc’s house, his cars and his girlfriend part ways after amassing a fortune in F1.
Charles Leclerc may have failed to challenge for the F1 crown last season, but he lives a life of luxury off the track. The Monaco native has access to stunning £3million sports cars and jaw-dropping travel. Leclerc made his F1 debut in 2018 before joining the iconic Ferrari team in 2019, where he quickly established himself as a top driver.
Express Sport examines Leclerc’s remarkable life behind the scenes.
Like many of his F1 rivals, Leclerc lives in the flash environment of Monte-Carlo. However, unlike Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, Leclerc is a naturalized citizen of the Principality.
Little is known about the interior of Leclerc’s home other than a few details found on his social media accounts. It is believed to have a modern kitchen with marble countertops and white cabinets.
He also has a beautiful white grand piano in the living room, surrounded by several trophies and helmets from his racing career.
Over the winter, the Ferrari star enjoyed a skiing holiday in Val Gardena, in the Dolomites. Posting on Instagram, Leclerc hinted that the holiday was “a training camp”, but still uploaded photos of himself laughing with friends.
Leclerc stayed at the luxury Granvara Relais Spa, where stays can cost upwards of £1,319 (€1,500). She also enjoyed a trip to Corsica, France, during her summer vacation, where she was photographed with friends on a luxury yacht.

Until recently, Leclerc dated Charlotte Sine, an architecture student and resident of Monaco. The couple have been in a relationship for three years, with Sine regularly seen in the paddock at F1 events.
He last attended the season finale at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix but announced their split a few weeks later. Leclerc posted: “Hello everyone, Charlotte and I have decided to end our relationship and we remain good friends.
“We shared so many great moments and she is and always will be a very special person to me. »

The 25-year-old is believed to have an impressive collection of £5.8million ($7million) filled with some of the most evocative supercars on the planet. He is said to hold the keys to a stunning Ferrari GTC4 said to be priced at £685,000 ($850,000).
Leclerc also has a stunning Ferrari F8, a McLaren GT, a Jaguar XF, a Land Rover Discovery and a Rolls-Royce Wraith in his garage. However, the flagship model is the Bugatti Chiron, which is capable of exceeding 300 mph.
Leclerc reportedly paid £2.4 million ($3 million) for the exclusive 16-cylinder sports car. He also owns two F1 cars, his first driving for Alfa Romeo in 2018 and the model he won in his first race at the 2019 Belgian Grand Prix.
The Ferrari talent opened up about his hobbies in a YouTube video documenting 24 hours of his life. In the clip, he shows off his tennis skills as he plays with his brothers, including F3 driver Arthur Leclerc.
He recently admitted that he has a strong interest in fashion and even spoke to Lewis Hamilton about the seven-time champion’s new collection. He said, “I really like the design of the clothes. It is definitely the creative element that inspires me.
“I know how to draw, but I don’t seem to have this level to draw my own collection. He is also an avid pianist, who learned the skill during the lockdown, admitting it was an opportunity to “disconnect from the race”.
Like Verstappen, Leclerc is also an avid gamer and uses his simulator regularly. He also streams some of his races online on Twitch.
Leclerc doesn’t have his own private plane but doesn’t need to take a commercial flight to get to the races. He and his teammate Carlos Sainz can benefit from Ferrari’s personal jet, equipped with comfortable armchairs and beds.
The plane is painted in a stylish silver and red color combination and privately owned by Vistajet. Leclerc posted a photo of himself on the plane on Instagram, writing the caption: “Thank you @vistajet for always making it feel like home away from home.”
According to Spotrac, Leclerc has collected £42.6million in wages since his debut five years ago. However, Essentially Sports suggests that the Ferrari driver has a net worth of around 10.6 million pounds ($12 million).
That amount is less than the £56 million ($60 million) worth of Verstappen, despite the two drivers being the same age.
