Charles Leclerc managed to capture pole position for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in impressive fashion on Saturday afternoon. The Ferrari driver was almost three tenths faster than Red Bull Racing driver Sergio Perez. Max Verstappen was not able to get away and will have to start from the second row of the grid on the street circuit of Baku.

Carlos Sainz finished in a somewhat disappointing fourth place for him. Although the Spaniard will start diagonally behind Verstappen, he will undoubtedly have hoped for a start from the front row of the grid. Sainz, however, without being able to make a serious second run in Q3, managed to keep rivals George Russell and Pierre Gasly behind him.

Lewis Hamilton set the seventh time, but had to fear for a grid penalty. In the end, the seven-time world champion received no penalty from the stewards and so he will appear on the asphalt tomorrow alongside Yuki Tsunoda. The fifth starting row is completed by former world champions Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso.
