Monaco Formula 2 driver Charles Leclerc had a disappointing outing at Spa-Francorchamps on Saturday, failing to make it into the top three after a technical non-conformity was found on his car.

In spite of this setback, Leclerc, whose impressive 2017 chart total counts five successes and seven pole positions in the F1 antechamber, retains a very large lead at the top of the provisional hierarchy.

The 19-year-old Monegasque has been called a genius by the motorsport press. A graduate of the Ferrari Driver Academy, Leclerc will be driving a F1 car next year at the wheel of a Sauber. Meanwhile, he has a 66 points margin compared to Oliver Rowland of the UK, who finished third this Saturday.
