LEWIS HAMILTON TAKES POLE ON ULTRASOFT FOR MERCEDES 
AFTER A CLOSELY-FOUGHT QUALIFYING HELD IN UNCERTAIN CONDITIONS

MERCEDES AND RED BULL TO START THE FRENCH GRAND PRIX
 ON SUPERSOFT AFTER SETTING THEIR FASTEST TIMES WITH THEM IN Q2

ONE PIT STOP A LIKELY OPTION FOR THE RACE, BUT A TWO-STOPPER 
ALSO A POSSIBILITY, WITH THE CHANCE OF FURTHER RAIN

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“Track and air temperatures were a lot cooler than they were yesterday, with the rain in FP3 also washing away much of the rubber that had been laid down earlier. This meant that teams had to cope with changing track conditions, during a tricky qualifying hour made even more complicated by a red flag interruption during the final Q3 session. In the end the times were extremely close, with little to split the top three teams. With Ferrari’s third-placed Sebastian Vettel being the only car in the top five to begin the race on the fast-starting ultrasoft compound, we should be in for an interesting start to the race tomorrow”.
