The Ferrari F1 Team yesterday achieved what was expected of them for the first qualifying session of the 2022 F1 season in Bahrain. The team managed to secure a pole position with Charles Leclerc and also secured third place on the grid with Carlos Sainz.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen finished second, just missing pole. Helmut believes that Max”lost a tenth and a half in the final corner.”

Helmut Marko, Red Bull’s team advisor, was impressed by Ferrari’s development over the past three years and said: “The Ferrari engine goes like a rocket.”

Helmut Marko has revealed that Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc fought for pole position on track yesterday and their young Dutch driver lost the battle at the last corner.

Marko emphasized P2 for today and said: “Unfortunately Max lost one and a half tenths in the last corner.”

Helmut also stressed that the different tire temperatures were also one of the reasons why Max lost his battle for pole against Charles.

The tires were either too cold at the start of the lap or too hot at the end of the lap.”

However, Helmut is very confident about the race and believes the RB18 will perform really well on the long runs and cope well with the new Pirelli tyres.

It seems the Red Bull camp isn’t too disappointed with yesterday’s result and is backing Verstappen to show his magic on the circuit. Max has all the skills in his arsenal to secure victory in Bahrain and knowing Max everyone knows he will give it his all.

It will be interesting to see who will be in the lead after the rush for the first corner. Fireworks are expected in Bahrain and there’s a good chance the race will go to the edge of the seat clock. It’s a must and will give at least one team the right to brag to the second race of the season.
