Hee added,

“I cannot wait to enjoy an even deeper relationship with the team after what has been an intense and exciting 2019.I’m keen to see what the future holds and I can’t wait to get going again next season.”

Leclerc’s team mate Sebastian Vettel, who joined Ferrari in 2015, has one year left on his current contract with the team.

Team principal Mattia Binotto said Leclerc’s strong performance in his first season with the team made it an easy decision to retain him.

“With each passing race this year, our wish to extend our contract with Charles became ever more self-evident and the decision means he will now be with us for the next five seasons,”

he said. “It demonstrates that Charles and the Scuderia have a firm future together.”

Charles has been part of our family since 2016 and we are more than proud of the results we are achieving with our academy.
