Latest recap of the 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix qualifying

Charles Leclerc places first in the 2022 Azerbaijan Grand Prix qualifying

By: Jake Rajala

The unique Baku track delivered a roller coaster journey for Aston Martin – as Sebastian Vettel shined and Lance Stroll sunk. Stroll crashed his car twice in half a minute, while Vettel had an admirable ninth place. It should be told that real magic appears to circulate around Vettel in Azerbaijan. Planet F1 nicely outlined how Vettel has finished at the Top-4 of every Baku race since 2016.

Of course, Vettel finished second place behind Sergio Perez in the 2021 Baku race (while having the fastest lap). It appears that Perez may be in line for another podium finish – as he placed second in the qualifying event. He will be eyeing for his second straight victory from P2.

The Ferrari top-gun driver Charles Leclerc had an impressive first-place finish and 1:41.359 time. Charles Leclerc had an excellent quote about his stunning result. Per Formula1.com, It feels good, this one. Obviously all pole positions feels good, but this one I probably did not expect it, because I thought Red Bull were stronger, especially in Q1 and Q2, I really struggled to see that we were faster, but then in the last lap, everything came together and I managed to do a good lap, so extremely happy .. I’m really excited for tomorrow”

Leclerc has two wins and four podiums on the season thus far. He took fourth place in the Baku GP last year.

Max Verstappen took third place, Carlos Sainz was fourth place, and George Russell was given the last spot. Verstappen will want to seek at least a finish on the podium tomorrow. He is still leading the F1 standings (125 pts), but he can’t allow Leclerc (with momentum) to gain ground. The Red Bull driver had three straight victories prior to the Monaco GP, so he will look to have a better outcome than his qualifying race.

Sainz will aim to have his fourth straight Top-4 place tomorrow morning, as well.
