Published

on

Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel continued his dominance of the weekend so far at the Hungarian Grand Prix by storming to pole position for Sunday’s race.

Kimi Raikkonen joins his Ferrari team-mate on the front-row of the grid ahead of Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas, who secure the third. Vettel’s main title rival Lewis Hamilton continued to struggle for pace at the track and he could only manage fourth position.

During the post-qualifying press conference, Vettel has described his Ferrari as being “phenomenal” around the Hungaroring.

“The car all day has been incredible We did a good step forward, I like this track a lot and to have the car in the right window, the sun and people around, that’s what it’s all about.

“Front row for us is incredible and we’re looking forward to tomorrow.

“We are working hard. the last race wasn’t great for us. We are here and we try to do our best. We’re happy where we are as a team and remember where we were 12 months ago.

“The main task comes tomorrow so nothing is won today but we’re very happy.”

Pole sitter Vettel also has a veiled message for the doubter’s post Silverstone:

“It’s great but especially after the talk after the last race, which was a bit much. We give the answer on the track.”
