Charles Leclerc takes pole position on Ferrari land

This one, he went to get it alone. A draft offered by Carlos Sainz was expected, but in the end Charles Leclerc fought unaided for pole position at Monza, ahead of the Tifosi.

Even though Red Bull couldn’t fight for pole position because of the penalties, the Austrian team’s engineering pontoon made a grimace at the end of qualifying. However, Max Verstappen was not far, a tenth slower than the Ferrari. « We voluntarily chose to leave with more aerodynamic supportexplains the Dutchman, leader of the world championship. It’s not ideal on a lap, but tomorrow we’ll go further. »

Disappointment for Esteban Ocon

In front of an audience all for his cause, the Ferrari driver savored: “I knew there was potential, but I had to put it all together. The sensations are very good, I hope to repeat the performance of 2019.” This year, the Monegasque won and celebrated the podium in front of a red tide.

On the French side, the disappointment came from Esteban Ocon. With nothing, the Frenchman was eliminated in Q2, on a circuit that normally suits Alpine. He will also be penalized 5 places on the grid.
