F1 star Charles Leclerc is single after breaking up with student girlfriend

Ferrari F1 star Charles Leclerc is back on the market after confirming his split from girlfriend of three years Charlotte Sine.

Leclerc, who finished second to Max Verstappen in the 2022 drivers' standings, had been dating the architecture student for three years, with the pair both based in Monaco. The stunning 23-year-old, who speaks French, English and Italian, has regularly posted snaps of her trips with Leclerc on Instagram.

But despite the pair appearing inseparable online, their relationship has come to a halt. Announcing the news to his 9.5 million followers on his own Instagram page, Leclerc insisted they would remain on good terms.

The 25-year-old added: "She is amazing and deserves the best, please respect our decision and her privacy in a time like this. Thank you," and his now former partner also uploaded a message.

She wrote: "Hello, Charles and I have decided to end our relationship and stay good friends. It's been three beautiful years together with loads of memories. He is an amazing person and I wish him the best. Please respect our decision and privacy. Thank you."

It's been an eventful year for Leclerc, who seemingly laid down a marker at the start of F1's new era by winning two of the opening races in Bahrain and Australia. But his title challenge was soon derailed by a number of tactical blunders, with Scuderia Team Principal Mattia Binotto resigning from his role after the season.

Leclerc did pay tribute to his outgoing boss, although his farewell statement did hint at tensions between the two: "Thank you for everything, Mattia," he wrote on Instagram, alongside a picture of the pair together.

"We spent four very intense years together, full of great satisfaction and also, inevitably, moments that tested us. My esteem and respect for you have never diminished, and we have always worked with full dedication to achieve the same goals. Good luck for everything.”
