Only two races have Charles Leclerc (Monaco) needed to show what he can do.

The 21-year-old Monegasse messes up the balance of power in Maranello.

It was burning in a cylinder that cost Charles Leclerc his first ever Formula 1 win. On lap 46, the superior Ferrari suddenly limped. Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton inherited the victory in Bahrain. Nevertheless, the star of this race weekend was the third-placed Ferrari youngster Leclerc at the end: fastest in final training, pole position, lead up to ten laps to the finish, fastest race lap.

After just two races, the 21-year-old Monegasse is already the power question at Ferrari. At the start of the season in Melbourne still held by team behind teammate Sebastian Vettel, showed in Bahrain what happens when Ferrari grants his newcomer a free hand: Vettel was only fifth.
