Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen pipped MrecedesAMG’s Bottas with his final run as Ferrari secure their 2nd front-row lockout of the season.

Mr. Vettel was in perfect form Saturday after he finished 7th at the British Grand Prix a fortnight ago following a penultimate-lap tire puncture.

“It is only Saturday so there is nothing to get from today other than the best position on the grid, but we did that which is great,” Vettel said. “The talk after the last race was a bit too much so it was good to deliver the answer on the track.”
