Charles Leclerc joins Olympic torch relay ahead of Paris Summer Games

With just over a month to go until the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, the Olympic flame has begun its journey to the opening ceremony.

And on Tuesday, the Olympic torch relay took on an F1-like atmosphere.

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc was one of the people chosen to carry the torch in the Principality as the relay passed through Monaco – he eventually won his home race, the Monaco Grand Prix – but other Monegasque figures who took part in the relay included Princess Charlene, Prince Albert II and bobsledder Rudy Rinaldi.

Leclerc shared footage of his time carrying the Olympic torch on social media.

As the Olympic torch continues its journey to Paris, Leclerc will soon be competing in the Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona, ​​where he will be hoping to help Ferrari return to form after both he and Carlos Sainz Jr. finished outside the points at the last Canadian Grand Prix.

The result leaves Red Bull 25 points behind Ferrari in the F1 Constructors’ Championship, with McLaren on 28 points thanks to Lando Norris’ second place and Oscar Piastri’s fifth, and Ferrari desperate to bounce back in Barcelona.

Perhaps carrying the Olympic torch will provide Leclerc with some inspiration this weekend.
