Leclerc Earns Pole For Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc had a masterful showing in qualifying on Saturday, laying down a blistering lap to take pole for Sunday’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Leclerc’s pace was over two tenths quicker than second place qualifier Sergio Perez, with a 1:41.359. “Obviously all pole positions feel good, but this one I probably did not expect it, because I thought Red Bull were stronger, especially in Q1 and Q2, I really struggled to see that we were faster, but then in the last lap, everything came together and I managed to do a good lap, so extremely happy… I’m really excited for tomorrow.”. Carlos Sainz, who qualified 4th, had a glimpse of pole position in Q3 before Ferrari teammate Leclerc went .455 seconds quicker in the latter stages of qualifying to take the top spot.
