Cape Town - Linked to Kimi Raikkonen's race seat, Charles Leclerc admits driving for Ferrari would be a "dream" come true. 

The Monegasque driver is reportedly being lined up as Raikkonen's replacement with Ferrari having decided that it is time for fresh talent to come through the ranks. 

It will be the first time that Ferrari have gambled on a 20-year-old with the Scuderia's past stance being to hire experienced drivers given the pressure of racing in the red. 

Leclerc, though, could be the exception to the rule as already the Sauber rookie has shown himself to be level headed and focused on the task. 

Four top-ten results in the last five races could see his dreams come true. 

"It's a dream for any driver to be in this red seat and it's a dream for me too," he told Sky Sports F1.
