Vettel once said Leclerc is singlehandedly the best qualifier he’s ever seen. He’s really living it up to that
@Don Forbes All of those several years behind Max in terms of top level championship experience. Which is what they’ll need to get past Max. It took Max a few years at that level to learn also.
@dot connector you clearly dont know much about how F1 works. When your car is trash during the race, like the Ferrari (always suffering from high degradation), then you gamble in qualifying and hope you can avoid losing many positions during the race. Ferrari is only built for qualifying, it only gets worse from here on.
@fer262 im not sure we can say that as a fact. If RB also wanted to be morons and throw away points with a pointless over the top quali setup, maybe they would dominate quali 100% of the time. I think unlike Ferrar who are ‘we still checking’ the rule book, they understand you get more points the higher you finish in the race, not quali.
@El Gato why? They always take home the lions share of the points? No points for a quali setup.
@SandalphonCPU • 210 years ago lol, if he is better than his teammate, he can still win with a quali setup. You are comparing two different variables.
Charles Leclerc: the first person ever to make it to the iTunes Charts and pole position in the same week. A true renaissance man.
@J. Hamilton too bad she has…
What do you mean? Did i miss something for him to be in the iTunes Charts?
@Qwistro yeah, that’s true. But even here he is taking it with dignity and decency. And he is never giving up. 😉
@André the only thing he doesnt have is luck
@2941oksirhC D of course he needs the title in F1 to fulfill his biggest dream. A competitive car for a whole year and a competent team would be the first step for this. But although he hasn’t achieved that title yet, he is really impressive as a person and driver, at least for my taste. He is just a great mixture of so many things. Talent, friendliness, humbleness, politeness, versatility, prettiness… One of the very few celebrities I see a lot in and where the abilities are as beautiful as the character traits (at least as far as I can judge and know).
Yuki in Q3 is unbelievably cool and Charles on pole hopes for a Ferrari comeback
Do not get your hopes up, it is still Ferrari and a Ferrari.
0.8seconds ahead of teammate is madness
Great! Yuki TSUNODA P8! His car is very slow but his driving ability is extremely high! Thank you, Yuki! We are proud of you!
I hope Yuki can stay in F1 for a long time he is one of my favorite drivers
Yes he is beating de bries
Incredible how performances have changed so much over the break, great improvement by McLaren especially!
True. I cant wait till the gap’s are closed down and w’ll have some excitinf race’s again.
Baku is very different to normal tracks, it’s got a lot of 90 degrees corners and long straights which always gives weird results for most teams.
@Rickharder Ahhh, ok. I always wondered these comments from bots. copy paste 😂
@fly That’s so random, I was just scrolling the comments 😆
Love f1 but this break between Australia and Baku almost killed me
I thought the f1 season is over
@Don Forbes funny how you cry randomly under a comment that has nothing to do with max
@Don Forbes The “rocket engine, micheal masi and breaking cost cap” has absolutely nothing to do with the (any) driver of any team. It is the team that deals with all those aspects not the driver. But than again, emotional unrest and psychological challenges – especially in a fanatic -, can lead the said person to say things like you commented.
I don’t invest my ego onto Formula 1 drivers like so many fans do.
I hated Schumacher so was happy to see Britain get more world champions. Drivers I’ve liked I’ve been happy to criticise. They are all spoilt brats. I watched several as kids in Karting so the driver worship makes me cringe.
Yuki pushing the tractor on P8 is spectacular effort. Way to go Yuki!
1- Not a fan of Charles, but this is absolutely incredible for him. He outqualified both RB cars. Seriously an amazing qualifier, even in general. Unless Ferrari ruin his race like last year, Leclerc can win the race. I’m looking forward to it
2- Yuki in P8. Hes challenged for top 10 in like the entire season so far.
3- I knew Mclaren would improve. They’re like this
@RickMar yea, ig so… after reading bernard’s comment I recalled how powerful that honda power unit of rb can be while still maintaining reliability. if leclerc tries to maintain an aggresive pace the ferrari might go kaboom as usual, or he might have another “i am stooopid” moment. still cant know for sure, and if i had to guess i would say that fred would probably let charles go wild while keeping carlos a bit tame to guarantee some points
Kind of getting bored of watching the RBs winning all the time. A little excitement awaits
@Lil Redbull has great race pace, even last year, Leclerc got alot of poles. Leclerc is a great Quali driver, but max is probably going to W the race(s)
mate, I’m a diehard Ferrari and Charles fan, but I still think Red Bull will win
@Lil Yeah, it was stated that due to the rb19 front suspension, they can’t get heat into the front tyres so easily, hence in quali they are more or less closer to rivals but in race trim, due to that suspension… It makes their tyre deg lower and their rear suspension geometry makes them monsters in the straights, so if I’m to put my money, I would put it on Max
Leclerc beating de Red Bulls is the most impresive thing in this season so far
Not really, the Ferrari is always a torpedo around baku max has a tiny mistake in sector 2 or he probably wouldn’t pipped Charles Peres also messed up his 2nd q3 run
You don’t get points for pole tho 😂RB gonna dominate race hate to say it, I’m not getting my hopes up for Ferrari.
Just to crash out when leading the Grand Prix again 💀
You forgot to switch your account lol
@Johan Cruyff I certainly came
After 3 weeks of waiting we got:
– Sargeant finally getting to Q2,
– Charles matching quali time with Max before beating him by .2 sec,
– Two MCLs on Q3,
– Yuki dragging his tractor up to 8th
Domenicali giveth and Domenicali taketh away
