Leclerc fastest again in practice as Ferrari eyes pole at GP


"It feels good, the auto felt incredible, but I'm very sorry for the team for what happened to Seb", Leclerc said after hearing the result on team radio.

The world champion will line up from fifth in Sunday's race at the Red Bull Ring as a outcome of the incident involving Raikkonen. "I made a comment but I don't feel like I probably got out exactly what I was meaning".

As for Verstappen himself, he will look to move into the lead and repeat his win from last season, although it will be a tough task to overtake pole sitter Charles Leclerc and drive away from the pack.

The pole was the 21-year-old Monegasque's second of the season and Ferrari's first at the scenic circuit since Michael Schumacher in 2003. Sebastian Vettel had to skip the final qualifying round following an issue with the air-pressure line to his engine, leaving the German four-time champion only in 10th place.

"I haven't done a long run but normally we are a little stronger in the race than qualifying".

Despite those "emergencies" in Canada and France, Mercedes proved they have the resources and staff to cope and respond - demonstrating why they are an exceptional champion team and not exclusively reliant on Hamilton's extraordinary talent. "It was very tight in the end and it is quite cool to see three teams on the top-three positions". "We elected to use the medium tyre for the start of qualifying and then took the soft in Q3 resulting in third [now second] on the grid, which is a great place to be starting our home race from". "With our upgrades, the auto seems to be working better and this is an incredible result for us".

"I nearly killed someone". After hearing from the world champion, and reviewing video evidence, they deemed he "unnecessarily impeded" Raikkonen, throwing him down the grid.

Here, he got the very best out of his McLaren to qualify sixth, before he was bumped up two spots after Hamilton's punishment and a five-place grid drop for Kevin Magnussen following a gearbox change on his Haas. That's because Carlos Sainz has a power unit penalty that means he will start from the back of the grid, and faces a fight through the field.
