Mexico Grand Prix - Charles second, Seb third

26 Oct 2019

Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel will start the Mexican Grand Prix from second and third places on the grid, when the race gets underway tomorrow at 13.10 local (20.10 CET.)

Q3. Both Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow drivers comfortably made it through to final part of qualifying, with two sets of Soft tyres available. On his first run, neither driver got a perfect lap. Sebastian crossed the line in 1’15”170 while Charles did a 1’15”024.

Out of luck. The two SF90s then pitted to change tyres and set out to attack the time set by the leader at the time, Max Verstappen. Charles made a mistake in the third sector, while Sebastian was up on the clock. But at that point, Valtteri Bottas crashed into the barriers and that brought out the double yellow flag. It meant Vettel was really out of luck as he could have challenged for pole position, or at the very least, a place on the front row.
