The 2023 season has ended with a bang at the Yas Marina Circuit of Abu Dhabi and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc could not wait to celebrate. The team’s plans to replace Mercedes from the P2 spot in the Constructors’ Standings did not work out. Even with a podium finish by Leclerc, Ferrari failed to overthrow the Silver Arrows by a mere 3 points.
Even after being refused to do the celebratory donuts after the race in Abu Dhabi, Charles Leclerc’s excitement knew no bounds. The Monegasque was later spotted at a nightclub in the Middle Eastern City along with his ‘girlfriend’ Alexandra Saint Mleux.

Charles Leclerc and his long-term partner Charlotte Sine were deeply involved in a passionate affair that lasted till the final days of 2022. However, when the new year of 2023 dawned, Leclerc’s personal life was swept by winds of change, as he and Charlotte Sine chose to split ways amicably, leaving Charles on his own.
As their romance grew, they drew admirers by attending several high-profile occasions together and sealed their status as a couple. Ever since then, Alexandra has been seen accompanying the driver almost everywhere including the club in Abu Dhabi where he was visibly not in his senses being down with a few drinks.

With the season’s climax, the rollercoaster of a year that Charles Leclerc had has also ended. Leclerc had a remarkable comeback in the second half of the season, finishing the season in fifth position in the Drivers’ Standings. Despite a lackluster start, he secured three podium finishes in the final four races, concluding the season on a positive note and also with a few ‘Driver of the Day’ awards.
The Monegasque radiates confidence before even entering the 2024 season. The Ferrari driver explained his typical approach to the “quiet time” that follows after the end of the season in an interview with Sky Sports. He said, “I wish there were more races. I can’t wait to hop back in the car and see where we are next year. What motivates me is that the year went in the positive way.”

With an excellent P2 result to round off the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Leclerc appreciated the team’s outstanding effort at the final race of the season. Charles Leclerc further stated, “I would like to thank the team for doing such incredible work and for working so incredibly hard since the first race. But the team has done an incredible job pushing until the last race.”
Although Ferrari secured a runner-up finish in the Constructors’ Championship standings, they failed to compete and had to settle for P3. Regardless of the issues with Ferrari that plagued the season, Leclerc has shown nothing but gratitude for the team.
