Charles Leclerc has signed a new long-term contract with the Ferrari Formula One team through to the end of the 2024 season.
Ferrari Academy driver Leclerc joined the Scuderia at the start of last season, after a year plying his trade with Sauber, on a deal believed to be to the end of the 2021 season.
But following a successful maiden campaign with Ferrari he has been rewarded with a new and improved contract.
A delighted Leclerc said: "I am very happy to be staying on with Scuderia Ferrari. This past season, driving for the most illustrious team in Formula 1, has been a dream year for me.
"I cannot wait to enjoy an even deeper relationship with the team after what has been an intense and exciting 2019. I'm keen to see what the future holds and I can't wait to get going again next season."
Leclerc went into 2019 as team-mate to Sebastian Vettel, who was given number one status by team principal Mattia Binotto due to his experience as a four-time champion and after four years with Ferrari.
But Leclerc quickly established himself, claiming two race wins and seven pole positions to the one victory and two poles for Vettel, and finishing 24 points ahead of the 32-year-old German in the drivers' standings.
