Charles Leclerc won his second best starting position this year in Melbourne, his eleventh overall. In addition, this is Ferrari's first pole in Australia since 2007, when Kimi Raikkonen was the best on Saturday. The Finn then managed to keep the advantage and won the race. Can Leclerc do it again? It will certainly not be easy. He has both Red Bulls behind him, and his teammate Carlos Sainz will start in ninth place by mistake.
After qualifying, the first words were the best of the three:
“I had quite a few problems in free practice, but today, when it was most important, I managed to make a very good circle. I am very happy for today's pole, mainly because this is a track on which I have had a lot of problems in the past. "
“I’m not getting along the best with a race car this weekend. I don’t think I’ve driven a single lap in which to have those real feelings. I am satisfied with the second place, but as a team we are aiming for more. ”
“Third place is a solid starting point. I hope we will offer a good race to the fans tomorrow. ”
