An intractable Charles Leclerc achieves the second pole of his life for Ferrari and will start tomorrow with the responsibility of breakin
Carlos Sainz will start last tomorrow, after being 13 in the qualification (without contesting it) and because of the change of engine and the consequent penalty. Lando Norris will start fifth after another great performance by the Englishman in qualifying. Leclerc will start on the pole, with new soft tires, in front of Hamilton's socks, with the intention of taking a gap and leaving. The English and especially Bottas, with a very discreet room, have not been comfortable in the Red Bull Ring throughout the qualifying session. The silver streak seems about to break at last. Max Verstappen, third ahead of the Finn, awaits the carambola from behind to be able to repeat the successful triumph of 2018, when he prevailed after the double abandonment of the Mercedes and thanks to the sanction that Vettel had then on the grid. Vettel ninth part Sebastian Vettel had an engine problem in Q2 and should start ninth (Magnussen was fifth, although he has 5 positions per gearbox), but out of the victory options. Bad news for the German, again, that does not raise head for some reasons or others since the Canadian GP and the controversial sanction.
