Vettel beats Leclerc to top final practice in Canada

Vettel beats Leclerc to top final practice in Canada Sebastian Vettel withstood a challenge from team-mate Charles Leclerc to head final practice in Canada as Ferrari laid down a gauntlet ahead of this afternoon’s qualifying session. The four-time world champion, who took his second victory in Montreal at last year’s event, set blistering pace on his way to recording the fastest time of a 1:10.843. Both Ferrari’s swapped places several times at the top of the timesheets, with Leclerc the first of the pair to lay down a marker. The Monegasque compromised his final attempt with a severe double lock-up into Turn 1, allowing Vettel to steal top spot with his last run.

Leclerc storms to second career pole in Austria.
Charles Leclerc stormed to a second Formula 1 career pole position, beating Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in a thrilling Austrian Grand Prix qualifying session. Hamilton’s front row spot is in jeopardy due to a post-session stewards investigation, as he is alleged to have blocked Kimi Raikkonen at Turn 3 in Q1. Along with his team-mate Valtteri Bottas and Verstappen, Hamilton opted to complete Q2 on the medium compound tyre while the Ferrari pairing of Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel used the less durable soft rubber on which they will start the race.
