Over the course of the 2017 season he dominated Palmer, who was replaced by Carlos Sainz for the final four races. His second full season was impressive and almost earned him a Ferrari drive, but his height and weight consigned him to another season in the midfield as the new regulations come in to effect in 2014.
Were it not for a late safety car, as both Renault cars died to deny Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg points, Max Verstappen looked set to haul in the struggling Leclerc.

On the last season, the channel was the home to authentic motorsports actions in and around Australia.
It looked as though Mercedes was in terrific shape in the early part of the session, as Bottas and Hamilton both used medium tyres to lap quicker than the soft-tyred Ferraris initially.
As has been the case so often this year, however, a strong run was followed by disappointment. He was unable to return to the second feature with a 21st-place finish, but gutted out the third Main and finished eighth in it.
