Charles Leclerc had a brilliant Qualification even after the mistake he committed at the start of Q3. Ferrari driver managed to get on pole and start ahead of Max Verstappen on P2.

Leclerc managed to get his time under 1:18’s, which any other driver barely touched on track.

Charles made a huge blunder at the start of Q3 which didn’t let him complete that lap. He spun his car on turns 14-15 chicane and had to run back to the garage. On the other hand, Max managed to get his car on the provisional pole with a brilliant lap time of 1:19.073, which was the lap time we saw over the Qualifications.

With Max also having some problems, he didn’t get to get his second run only managing P2 0.323 seconds behind Leclerc. With Sainz managing to finish P3 it’s a Ferrari sandwich for the race tomorrow.
