This Saturday, the stakes will increase considerably for the drivers who, after taking part in a final free practice session, will compete for pole position in qualifying. Discover the qualifying schedule for the French Grand Prix below.
A real battle for pole position?
This weekend again, Ferrari is obviously one of the contenders for pole position. Since the start of the season, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz have been formidable in qualifying.
And according to Italian team principal Mattia Binotto, they’ve had a new rear wing for some time which has improved the F1-75’s top speed and significantly reduced its lag behind the RB18.
The Monegasque driver and his Spanish teammate will therefore certainly give championship leader Max Verstappen a hard time. But the world champion will not only have to be wary of the Ferraris, but also of the Mercedes who have recently managed to settle into the rhythm of the championship leaders.
And knowing that Lewis Hamilton is particularly comfortable at Le Castellet, where he won in 2018 and 2019, qualifying for the French Grand Prix should be particularly hotly contested, for our greatest pleasure!
