After three eventful and fruitful training sessions in Saudi Arabia, all led by Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, Sergio Perez surprised everyone by taking the first pole of his career in 215 races. The driver put in a flying lap and pushed Charles Leclerc off pole, who himself took it from his teammate Carlos Sainz.
Sergio Perez’s pole is important for the team as Max Verstappen failed to move up the grid and would be crucial in keeping the Ferraris in contention. The driver spoke of his flying lap, which was cheered by all round, and said: “I could do a thousand laps and I wouldn’t beat these! It was amazing.”
Sergio Perez secures pole position in Jeddah
The final race on Sunday is perfectly prepared, with two Ferraris separating Max Verstappen in P4 and Sergio Perez in P1. This is a strong and determined response from Red Bull, particularly from Sergio Perez after a tragic start to the season at the Bahrain GP.
Race strategy will be absolutely crucial on Sunday with the possibility of red flags coming into play. Sergio Perez certainly has the speed as he mastered the second sector which gave him pole position ahead of Carlos Sainz. Perez has won two F1 races in his long career and will be looking to make it a third at Jeddah.
