RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX QUALIFYING

FERRARI CLAIMS FIRST AND SECOND IN QUALIFYING ON ULTRASOFT WITH A POLE TIME MORE THAN TWO SECONDS FASTER THAN LAST YEAR

ONLY FERRARI USES THE SUPERSOFT IN Q1 ULTRASOFT FOR EVERYONE ELSE FROM START TO FINISH IN QUALIFYING

ONE PIT STOP CONFIRMED AS MOST LIKELY RACE STRATEGY

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“The key to qualifying was the preparation of the tyres on the warm-up lap, with some drivers choosing one, and others preferring two, in order to extract the maximum performance. On the final run, Vettel did two warm-up laps, while Raikkonen chose one. This precise tyre management was a highlight of an exciting and closely-fought session with some very close margins at the finish. Apart from that, it was a straightforward qualifying session today, with the tyres behaving exactly as we expected. As we’ve seen from the past the surface remains quite slippery here, despite some natural ageing of the asphalt.”
