“Charles Leclerc outpaced F1 title rival Max Verstappen to take the pole position at the French Grand Prix”–Paul Ebeling

Here are the qualifying results and highlights from Circuit Paul Ricard

Mr. Leclerc and his Ferrari team-mate Carlos Sainz, who will start at the back of the grid after having a new engine and control electronics fitted, were dominant during Friday practice but Verstappen hit back to go quickest in FP3.

He found the response he needed with a hot lap of 1:30:872 in Q3 to pip the world champion to 1st place on the grid.

It is the Monegasque driver’s 16th career pole and 7th this season, and he will now turn his attention to claiming back-to-back wins after his triumph in Austria last time out.

Have a super race weekend, Keep the Faith!
