Charles Leclerc says that he has a desire to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the future.
Leclerc was present at the French venue last weekend to witness Ferrari win the famous race on its debut with the 499P car.
Alessandro Pier Guidi, James Calado and Ferrari F1 reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi were behind the wheel throughout the event and ended Toyota’s five-year streak of wins at Le Mans.
When asked by Eurosport if he would be interested in taking part in the race at some point in his career, Leclerc said: “I mean, why not? Why not?
“I would love to, it’s an incredible event. For sure, one day in my life I want to tick that box. When will it be I don’t know.”
On the current F1 grid, two drivers have prevailed at the race – Fernando Alonso and Nico Hulkenberg.
Leclerc’s F1 rival Max Verstappen has also spoken of his desire to compete in endurance championships once he calls time on his F1 career.
Ferrari’s victory at the 2023 Le Mans race offers the Italian manufacturer a chance to celebrate amid a difficult start to its F1 campaign.
“It feels absolutely amazing,” Leclerc added, speaking about Ferrari’s victory.
“Obviously, especially having a Ferrari winning, it’s incredible. It’s incredible, a return after so many years.”
Leclerc will be back competing this weekend at the Candian Grand Prix, the eighth round of the 2023 F1 season.
