FORMULA 1 star Charles Leclerc has been gaming heavily online during lockdown but it may now have gone too far for his girlfriend.
Leclerc’s gorgeous partner Charlotte Sine was forced to BUY a subscription to his Twitch stream just to get back into the apartment after he ignored her for 25 minutes.

Charlotte Sine used to regularly post snaps of her travels around the world on her Instagram account
The glamorous young couple have only been dating a matter of months but are not afraid to share their relationship with fans online
Leclerc, who hails from Monaco, was so engrossed in his live Twitch stream that his stunning girlfriend was forced to pay £4.99 to subscribe for a month.
She then promptly left a message on his channel asking him to let her in the front door after he had failed to reply to any other form of traditional contact.
The Ferrari F1 driver laughed when he realised it was no ordinary new subscriber and jumped out of his hi-spec motorsport gaming set up to save his missus.
He tweeted: “My girlfriend had to buy a subcription to my Twitch to be able to ask me in the channel chat if I could open her the front door. She waited 25 mins downstairs as I couldn’t hear my phone, I had the headphones and was very focus on my rally race.”
The pair have been dating for only a matter of months after Leclerc split from previous lover and Italian bombshell Giada Gianni to focus on his driving exploits.
Stunner Charlotte, 20, regularly posts pictures of her famous man to her Instagram page which has more than 50,000 followers and it appears the two have been living together throughout lockdown.
Leclerc has spent the majority of his time inside gaming and even took part in Virtual Grand Prix’s with fellow elite drivers as well as sporting superstars including cricketer Ben Stokes and Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
The Monegasque star showed his form runs true virtually as well as physically on the track by pulling off back-to-back wins in the Bahrain and Shanghai races.
The 22-year-old has thrown down the gauntlet for when the F1 season can resume and reckons he can top British champion Lewis Hamilton after clocking up five hours a day on his home simulator.
Next season will have a different feel for Leclerc after the announcement that his Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel will be leaving at the end of his contract.
Leclerc tweeted: “It’s been a huge honor for me to be your team mate. We’ve had some tense moments on tracks. Some very good ones and some others that didn’t end as we both wanted, but there was always respect, even though it wasn’t perceive this way from the outside.
“I’ve never learnt so much as I did with you as my teammate. Thank you for everything Seb.”
