The Finn precedes Hamilton’s other Mercedes by 12 thousandths. Third Verstappen. For the Cavallino qualifying difficult with the Monegasque who starts from the fourth row and the German eliminated in Q2
Badly the Ferraris, with Charles Leclerc seventh and Sebastian Vettel eliminated in Q2 which will be forced to start 11th. The Cavallino had said that it was not going to be an easy start, but a gap of this type, with Red Bull, McLaren and Racing Point ahead, is a bad sign. The race is still to be played, but since the new updates will only arrive in Hungary it is easy to predict that we will have to clench our teeth also next week.
So the Q1
Max Verstappen’s best time in Q1 in 1’04 “024 in front of the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton. Fourth time for Lance Stroll with the Racing Point, then there is Ferrari, fifth with Charles Leclerc, half a second behind. For Vettel eighth time behind Carlos Sainz and Sergio Perez. Kevin Magnussen (Haas), George Russell (Williams), Giovinazzi and Raikkonen’s Alfa and Latifi’s Williams were eliminated.
Q2, Vettel trouble
In Q2 the Ferrari disaster, with Sebastian Vettel eliminated in the 11th time and Charles Leclerc in Q3 by a whisker, with the tenth time. Gasly, Kvyat, Ocon with Renault and Grosjean have also been eliminated. Best time for Bottas ahead of Hamilton, Albon and Norris. Verstappen tried to qualify for Q3 with the yellow tire, but then he had to change his mind and mount the soft.
