Russian Grand Prix Qualifying 3 Session 

Last Ferrari driver to take 4 consecutive poles was Michael Schumacher. That’s an overwhelming stat to hear you’ve just matched but for Ferrari and specifically Charles Leclerc, it’s a reality he’s almost shell-shocked to be told live by Jenson Button after the 2019 Russian Grand Prix Qualifying session.

Russian Grand Prix Qualifying 1 Session Summary

Russian Grand Prix qualifying already full of drama going into the session. Last year’s best time in Q1 was 1:32.4. Records could fall as Ferrari look untouchable at a track that Mercedes usually dominates. Track limits are less enforced at this race with the natural barriers serving as punishment. Vettel makes a mistake on his first go, then he has another compromised lap by a yellow flag from a Kubica spin, and to compound things, a red flag Albon initiates makes him abandon his lap. But he turns it around and takes the fastest time overall but is forced to use soft compounds. Kimi takes too much speed into turn 13 and compromises his lap and winds up being eliminated.

Drivers eliminated from Q1:

  • RÄIKKÖNEN: 1:34.840
  • RUSSELL RUS 1:35.356
  • KUBICA: 1:36.474
  • ALBON: 1:39.197
