11 | 05 | 2019 GP Spanien / GP Spain Qualifying for the Spanish Grand Prix proved harder than expected for Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow. Sebastian Vettel will start from third on the grid, with Charles Leclerc fifth, when the lights go out at 15.10 to start the 49th Spanish Grand Prix, here at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit.

Q1. The pair of SF90s comfortably made it through to Q2. Sebastian used one set of Soft tyres improving with each lap from 1’18”068 to 1’17”823 and then to 1’17”425. Charles did the same, going from 1’17”835 to 1’17”727 and then to 1’17”388.

Q2. The second part of the session saw the German set a time good enough to get into Q3 on his very first run. Sebastian posted an excellent 1’16”667, although Charles made a mistake, running wide at one corner, slightly damaging his car. He was unable to improve on 1’17”511. The Monegasque driver went back on track in the final minutes with a new set of red tyres, to get through to the final part with a 1’16”714.

Q3. In the top ten shoot-out, Sebastian did two runs on two sets of tyres, while Charles had to wait for repairs to be carried out on his car, doing two timed laps on the same set of tyres. Vettel posted a 1’16”272, but did not improve on his second run. Charles did a 1’16”613 and then got down to a 1’16”588.

Tomorrow. Sebastian will start behind Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton, with Max Verstappen alongside him. Charles shares the third row with sixth placed Pierre Gasly.

Sebastian Vettel #5 “We are happy but we’re not happy. By that, I mean that the car is well balanced and I think the updates we have brought have helped with the driveability of the car. However, it’s obvious that we are still not where we want to be, because we are very quick down the straights, but we are losing too much time through the slower corners. The result of all that is that we are not in front and so we have to continue to work hard. Nevertheless, I think that having a well balanced car means we can have a good race, so I’m ready to give it my all tomorrow.”
