Last weekend, the Monte Carlo Highway Circuit held an exhibition race called the Monte Carlo Historique. At this event, a number of classic F1 cars returned to the track and were driven.
One of them is Leclerc who represents Ferrari. He is believed to be in control of the Ferrari 312T which the late Niki Lauda used to win Formula 1 (F1) 1975 and 1977.
However, bad luck befell Leclerc instead. His car suffered brake failure and ended up crashing into the guardrail at the Rascasse corner.
The 24-year-old racer who was born in Monte Carlo did not expect his bad luck at the Monaco Circuit to continue in the exhibition event.
“I think my luck in Monaco is bad enough. I then had a brake problem at the Rascasse corner while driving one of Ferrari’s most iconic F1 cars,” Leclerc said on Instagram.
Leclerc’s track record at the Monaco GP is not good. Since his F1 debut in 2018, he has been unlucky and has never crossed the finish line once.
