Vettel beats Raikkonen to pole in Ferrari 1-2

Vettel beats Raikkonen to pole in Ferrari 1-2

The forecast is for a warmer race today and that should be better suited to Hamilton's Mercedes auto, but the Briton, who will have the Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo occupying his mirrors, fears he will be looking over his shoulder rather than hunting down Vettel.

"They have a really strong auto", he said.

"I was a bit beaten up, but knew that if I could get a tidy lap and have a little bit of margin, I can push it".

And Ricciardo made full use of his extra grip, making sensational overtakes on Lewis Hamilton, Vettel and race leader Valtteri Bottas to move to the front, after Verstappen gave up fourth place to the Australian in a scrape with the defending champion. 'Today just went away from us, Ferrari upped their pace throughout the weekend, probably not showing their true pace yesterday. I was just trying to overtake a vehicle and I think it was a fair chance.

"I am confident I can stay where I am, but moving forwards is going to be tough", Hamilton, 33, said. "We had a tail wind down that straight the whole race, so I guess he misjudged and compromised both of our results".

The famous Italian team has not won a season title in 11 years with Kimi Raikkonen champion in 2007.

"No, if we would swing like this and say this is the end of the era, it would be not the right mindset".

"The amusing bit of being outperformed on Saturday is that you are the lion that's just waiting to jump on the prey", commented Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff. I had no intention to resist because it was clear with Daniel [Ricciardo] as well that there was no point doing so as they were just too fast on the fresh tyres.

The Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo took the fifth and sixth grid spots, with the team just barely getting Ricciardo's auto ready after an engine blow-out in final practice. "By the end of the day the pace was looking good and I think we can be happy with the car's performance".

"We definitely have work to do", Bottas said.

"Honestly, I can't tell you if we can challenge. That will be fun".

Both Ferrari cars were 0.5 seconds faster in qualifying than either Mercedes, a huge gap in F1. "Hopefully it keeps respect between you because I think it's important between drivers". "It is a track where you just need to get in and find that sweet spot".

What's more, all three teams were neck-and-neck when it came to the longer runs during practice, with only a couple of tenths between their race pace averages.

Nico Hulkenberg was sixth for Renault, ahead of Fernando Alonso's McLaren and an upset Vettel, whose championship lead has been cut to nine points.
