Barcelona – Charles Leclerc allowed himself a single moment of negligence in Barcelona – in the end the world championship leader got out of his Ferrari as a pole setter.

The slip just before the end didn't stop the Monegasque, he is on pole position for the fourth time this season.

Even safe because Max Verstappen's Red Bull technology went on strike again: The world champion was only able to take second place.

"The pressure was great, I only had one lap left," said Leclerc, "but then it went really well." In the decisive section, he allowed himself to spin after having been almost flawless in Spain: in all three practice sessions and he also set the fastest lap time in Q1.

After his slip, he still drove the clear best time.

In the run-up to the Spanish Grand Prix (all TV information is available here), Leclerc gave a strong response to Verstappen's recent successes: the Dutchman had recently won two races in a row and reduced the gap to Leclerc to 19 World Championship points.

In Barcelona, ​​of all things, he complained about a lack of speed during the decisive attempt: the DRS, the folding wing, did not open.

"It's hard to say whether it would have been enough for pole," said Verstappen, "but I couldn't try, that's a shame."

Behind the two rivals, Leclerc's teammate Carlos Sainz is third in front of his home crowd.

Despite a few updates, Mercedes has not yet been able to catch up with the leaders, but is still on the up: George Russell finished fourth again ahead of record world champion Lewis Hamilton, who finished sixth.

Sebastian Vettel disappointed in the Aston Martin with 16th place. Mick Schumacher, however, managed a premiere in his Formula 1 career with the help of the rulers.

The Haas driver initially slipped to eleventh place at the end of Q2 and would have been eliminated, but the stewards canceled a lap time from Lando Norris.

The McLaren driver had just overshot the track barrier.

In any case, Schumacher slipped back into the top 10, for the first time he took part in the final qualifying section in the premier class, finishing tenth.

A good result compared to the previous history: The German had missed large parts of the third practice session because a brake caught fire in the Spanish heat.
