Charles Leclerc’s SF90 Ferrari from the 2019 F1 season arrived in Monaco on Monday to join the collection of cars belonging to Prince Albert II.
A gift unlike any other. Last week, Charles Leclerc received his SF90 from Maranello. A legendary set of wheels, Leclerc has made several spectacular victories in this Ferrari: his first two F1 wins, in Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium) and Monza (Italy). Now in possession of the car, the Monégasque driver has decided to exhibit at the Prince of Monaco Car Collection. Prince Albert II, just like his father Prince Rainier III, is an avid car collector.
I know that it will be in good handsCharles Leclerc
“It was the most important F1 for me,” he revealed to news channel Monaco Info. “It was in this single seater that I made almost all of my Formula 1 dreams come true. My first F1 victory, first time racing for Ferrari, first pole position, this car means so much. But I know that it will be in good hands, so I’m happy that it’s there.”

Although the Prince’s car collection is currently closed, the public will be able to set eyes on this new Formula 1 addition as soon as the museum reopens. “It’s amazing that it can be added to the collection and that we can continue with this theme,” said Prince Albert II during an interview with Monaco Info. “Formula 1 is evolving all the time and it’s extraordinary. You see the materials used, how sophisticated the equipment is, as well as the size and footprint of these cars. It’s incredible that everyone can have access to these vehicles and see them up close.”
