    I still can’t believe we took pole position.
    Kudos to Lec, Ferrari team. No words for me to describe.

    It’s too late for the championship, but Lec will finish 2nd in WDC. That’s a big achievement

    I’ll watch highlights again. There was every chance of 1-2 if not that vettel aborted lap

    Damn so close to a 1-2 grid dammit!

    Hopefully Vettel can use the clean side to make it 1-2 out of Turn 1 tomorrow, like he did to Max last year, that way Leclerc will have an epic chance to win! As it is, we need the perfect strategy to get Charles over the line. At least, so long as he gets the lead he can set the pace up front and control how fast it will go.

    What a lap though, at the most corner speed drivers' circuit on the calendar

    As for people bashing Vettel's pace, right now Charles is arguably the fastest driver in the world over one lap. He also did a really good job today to beat Verstappen. We could use him tomorrow to undercut Hammy if the positions remain as they are now. That way, we can race them 2-1 just like Mercedes did at Monza.

    I was really afraid today that Charles doing some rookie mistake, but I think after these victories and poles he is so confident and knows that he can beat them all and does not have to prove anything anymore, so I guess no more mistakes, just glory and victories from now on.

    The gap to P6 will be key tomorrow, if we get there in due course, so that Charles can make a pitstop but Hammy can't in that one-lap gap we should be good to go. Merely having clean air should allow Charles to keep a 2 second cushion if he starts pushing and in those two seconds, Hammy can be left a sitting duck when we can come in for mediums first, assuming we have the lead of course.

    After FP1&FP2 Dr.Marko mentioned that do watch out for Ferrari.
    I discounted his words, because of his regular nonsense stuff.

    During Quali q1 session with Sky Sports Horner said “we have Max Ver” when asked by Croft “do u have a party mode”.
    Wonder what Toto & Horner would say now

    The last 2 races the car has been very fast in qualifying but struggles during the race... maybe it's engine mode, but tomorrow isn't a given... it will be tough...
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...

    Lewis says it’s payback time for Monza upset. He vows to be aggressive at the start it seems

    Without those updates, not even our super quali engine mode would've saved us today. Thanks to those updates we are now as quick as the Mercedes in sector 3, which is a make or break sector of this track and all about slow speed corner.

    I'm expecting a very strong car for tomorrow's race.

    Saw that Lap by Charles crazy stuff a future champion in the making. Right on the limit But not over it. He deserved that pole. Reminds me of a monster 2015 Seb Lap.

    All Charles have to do now is to keep the lead after the first corner and half of the job is done. Dont know about what Seb can do. Wish good for both of them. Forza.

    First of all congrats to Charles and Vettel. I believe anything is possible tomorrow. Hoping for the best.

    I believe the lap from Charles was not his best. He himself was amused when he quoted "I am surprised we managed to get pole

    Check this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQOott2hdcs

    It shows we have oversteer yet somehow Charles managed to keep the car to the track. Vettel could not hence he aborted his last lap as he too suffered from oversteer. It was visible if anyone seen his last lap.

    Mattia and team need to work on this oversteer problem. We could have gone more quicker if had not been for this issue.

    Hoping for a positive result tomorrow.

    Had to miss quali but what a nice surprise when I checked the result, couldn't really believe it. Well done to Charles and Seb, and the team behind them for raising our hopes again, praying for a great result in the race but so far so incredible, especially young Charles.
