Leclerc will carry the flame

Monegasque pilot Charles Leclerc will have the honor of carrying the Olympic flame this Tuesday, June 18.

The Olympic flame leaves French territory. After a visit to Reunion Island, Guadeloupe, Polynesia and Martinique, she lands this Tuesday in Monaco where the native of the country, Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, will be one of the pallbearers. The Monegasque will pass in particular at the Rascasse corner, one of the places where he built his victory during the Monaco Grand Prix this year, at the wheel of his Ferrari, in front of the Australian Oscar Piastri and his teammate Carlos Sainz.

The 26-year-old pilot will pass the flame on to numerous athletes, including the record holder for participation in the Olympic Games for the Principality of Monaco, Prince Albert II himself. The Monegasque sovereign participated in the Winter Olympic Games five times, between 1988 and 2002, in bobsleigh.

The Olympic flame will then continue its journey through Nice, in the Alpes-Maritimes. Charles Leclerc, for his part, will travel to Barcelona in Spain for the 10th Grand Prix of the season, after his retirement from the Canadian Grand Prix. The Ferrari driver is still second in the World Drivers’ Championship behind Max Verstappen, 31 points behind.
