2018 F1 driver rankings #3: Leclerc | 2018 F1 season review

Leclerc flat-spotted his tyres early on in Bahrain, then in China he put one over his team mate in qualifying for the first time, only to spin out on race day.
Leclerc was over four-tenths of a second quicker than his team mate on average over the season, the widest margin of any driver.
Perhaps the best barometer of how much Leclerc impressed is that he convinced Ferrari to break with a long tradition of hiring older, experienced drivers and take a risk on this bright new talent for 2019.
