Arthur Leclerc has been reunited with his brother Charles at Ferrari, having signed on as a development driver for the team.
The latter signed a huge new contract extension earlier this month, which will keep him with the Scuderia long-term - at least through the introduction of new Formula 1 regulations in 2026.
It was announced on Saturday morning on the official Ferrari site that the Monegasque driver will join their ranks alongside Oliver Bearman, who has signed as the team’s reserve driver for the 2024 season.

Leclerc joins Antonio Fuoco and Davide Rigon in the development driver role, where he will spend most of his time in the simulator and on updates to the car throughout the season.
The 23-year-old will be racing this year as well, taking part in the Italian GT championship in a Scuderia Baldini 27.
