Q1. In the first part of qualifying, the SF90s took to the track on Medium tyres. Sebastian was first to post a time in 1’26”154, with Charles next up doing a 1’25”628. On his second run, the Monegasque got down to a 1’25”533, while the German did a 1’25”898 on the Softs, with both men getting through to the next session.

Q2. In this part, Charles again went out on Mediums, while Seb stayed on the Softs he’d used in the first session. The former immediately posted an excellent 1’25”646, while his team-mate did a 1’26”529. The both pitted for new Softs, with which they will start the race. Charles got down to a 1’25”529 while Seb went through to Q3 courtesy of a 1’26”023.

Q3. In the 12 minutes of the top ten shoot-out, the Scuderia Ferrari drivers set out on the 5.891 kilometre long track on new Soft tyres. Sebastian was first out, doing a 1’25”787, followed a few seconds later by Charles doing a 1’25”616. After a change of tyres, Charles went better doing a 1’25”172, just 79 thousandths off Valtteri Bottas’ pole time of 1’25”093 and 73 behind Lewis Hamilton who is second. Sebastian however was unable to improve and thus starts from sixth, behind Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly.

Sebastian Vettel #5 
“It’s been a bit of an up and down weekend for me and this afternoon, I struggled to get the most out of the car, as I couldn’t get a feel for it and I wasn’t happy with how it went. Lately, we have been clearly struggling on one lap pace. However, looking at our long run pace from free practice, I expect to be more competitive in the race tomorrow. It looks like Mercedes start favourite, but I think we can take the fight to the Red Bulls and then see what we can do from there.”
