Leclerc Clinches 3rd Consecutive Pole Position in Singapore

SINGAPORE – Monaco’s Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) earned on Saturday his third consecutive pole position ahead of the Formula 1’s Singapore Grand Prix.

Leclerc posted a time of 1:36.217, claiming the fifth pole position of his career ahead of five-time world champion Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) who completes the first row.

“I’m extremely happy – it was a very good lap but there were several moments when I almost lost control!” Leclerc told the Formula One media.

“I must thank the team – they have been amazing. Yesterday was not my day but this feels great,” he added.

World defending champion Hamilton, meanwhile, said:

“I don’t know where Ferrari picked up their pace today, it was potentially not one of their tracks, but Charles put a great lap in. I think tomorrow we can be aggressive and hopefully divide them...”

German driver Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) will kick off the race from the second row alongside Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull), who came third and fourth respectively.

“The final bit of Q3 wasn’t great but sometimes that’s the way it goes. We were quick out there today and it’s always fun round here one way or another. I’m looking forward to tomorrow,” the German said.

Behind them will be Finland’s Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes), and Thailand’s Alexander Albon (Red Bull) followed by Spaniard Carlos Sainz (McLaren) and Daniel Ricciardo of Australia from the fourth row.

As he did in Belgium and Italy, Leclerc clinched the pole position this time after a last-lap attack, which earned him a 0.191s lead ahead of the Briton, while he led his teammate Vettel by 0.220s.

Leclerc emerged victorious at the Italian and Belgian Grands Prix.

The 61-lap race is scheduled for Sunday at 1210 GMT at the 308.706-km Marina Bay circuit.
