Super performance of the Ferraris in qualifying, with Leclerc on pole and Sainz third, but the Spaniard will have to start from the bottom

Delirio Rosso in Monza, with Ferrari bringing home an excellent result from the qualifying session. Eighth pole of the season for Charles Leclercwho will start in front of everyone in the Italian GP dreaming of repeating the feat of 2019: “It’s fantastic, it wasn’t an easy session, but I knew there was potential. I did the last lap of Q3 to the fullest, I’m very happy with the lap and the weekend. The feeling was excellent, I hope to be able to do like 2019 “.

“I took a lot of risks at the last minute, I had to find the right performance. Thanks a lot to the fans, it’s always incredible here and tomorrow I’ll try to win because the fans deserve it,” said the Monegasque.

Third time in qualifying for Carlos Sainz, which, however, will be forced to start from the fund for the change of the power unit. The result exalts the Spaniard who, however, given the start from behind, said he was bitter: “It was an excellent qualifying, I felt very good and I pushed hard. I missed the slipstream at the last to fight for pole. , I start from behind and it doesn’t change me much. I had to take risks to compensate for the lack of slipstream, I was slow on the straight and I didn’t improve. I don’t want to lie, it hurts to start from behind, especially thinking about how competitive the car is and how good I’m feeling driving. I’ll do my best to give a lot of excitement and get back together, I would have liked to be there in front with Leclerc to try to score a double for these fantastic fans. “

The Team Principal Mattia Binotto quickly files Leclerc’s extraordinary pole position and in a certain sense “snubs” direct competition from Mercedes (Russell joins Charles in the front row), as well as that of the two McLarens that occupy the entire second row, immediately focusing his attention on Verstappen, also behind Gasly and Alonso:

.

“The pole position in Monza is a great emotion. Victory would be even more beautiful. We have a good pace and tire degradation is not excessive. Compared to Red Bull we are more exhausted: we are faster on the straight, they are faster in the corners. Who will have … been right we will know tomorrow. However, it is important to start in front of everyone: Verstappen is strong and will come back quickly but here in Monza overtaking is not taken for granted “.

Mekies: “It will be an interesting race” Satisfaction also in the words of Laurent MekiesFerrari racing director who analyzed the performance of the two F1-75s in this way: “It’s super exciting racing here, we didn’t know if we could fight for pole here. Saturday isn’t Sunday, but we worked exceptionally well and that’s what we achieved today. It’s a good point. Wake? They all worked very well, there is team spirit between Charles and Carlos who help each other in an incredible way. We always want to have both cars ahead, beyond the grid that will be there. there are a lot of calculations to do, tomorrow will be an interesting match. In the last three matches we have lost a lot against Verstappen, for tomorrow we will try to figure out how to cancel his advantage. We have the cards to go and fight for the match, we will see then what the tactics will be winning”.
