Crazy qualifying in Saudi Arabian Grand Prixthe second round of the season with the Formula 1 World Championship. In pole position is Sergio Perez who took full advantage of the mechanical failure of his teammate Max Verstappen, who will start fifteenth tomorrow.
In the third row an excellent will start Esteban Ocon, who finished three places ahead of his Alpine teammate Pierre Gasly. The Frenchman will try to attack the noble positions of the rankings tomorrow: “It was a good qualifying session, our strategy was to go through to Q2 using only one set of tyres“.
The Frenchman stated that he saw a improvement: “We reversed the trend compared to FP3, we went better in terms of performance. I touched the wall a couple of times in Q1, took all the risks possible and it went well“.
Finally, a joke about tomorrow’s race: “Max will be too fast for us, that’s for sure. I think we can fight with Lewis. We saw with the long stints that we were quite competitive, better than on one lap in qualifying. It’s up to us to put everything right. It’s been a good start to the weekend so far, but tomorrow we’ll have to put things right again.”
