Charles Leclerc finally managed to win the Monaco GP after so many ‘failed’ attempts.

Leclerc has a reputation for being a down-to-earth kind of guy.

A point that was further proven by a clip that was shared to X right after his win in Monte Carlo.

Charles Leclerc lives in Monaco, like most F1 drivers, but the key difference is he’s actually from Monaco.

Born in the Principality in 1997, the Monaco GP is his home race, by definition.

The thing is, the 26-year-old driver had never won the Monaco GP.

In fact, he never even got close.

Charles Leclerc’s track record (no pun intended) at Monaco, until now, was a compilation of bad luck and jinxes.

His best result was a fourth place two years ago, and then he had all kinds of DNS/DNF (did not start, did not finish) results before then.

Finally, after seven seasons in Formula 1, including six with Ferrari, the driver who secretly wanted to be an architect finally managed to win the Monaco GP.

And in order to celebrate, he did a Leclerc-esque thing and went home on… his bike.

Most drivers can be seen on superyachts or expensive supercars, but Leclerc opted for a simple bicycle, as seen from the video posted to X.

It seems to be something halfway between a road bike and a mountain bike on road tires, which he rode to head home after his big win.

We somehow think this is something his soon-to-be fellow teammate, Lewis Hamilton, wouldn’t do.

Hamilton is set to join Ferrari after the end of the season, and the veteran seven-time world champion isn’t known for being subtle about these things.

His outstanding car collection proves it.
