Charles Leclerc qualified as quickest for the 12th time today. The Ferrari driver scored pole position for tomorrow's 2022 Miami Grand Prix. It was the third pole of the season for the Monegasque driver and the 233rd pole for the Ferrari team.

Q1 session
Esteban Ocon could not take part this qualifying session. The French driver crashed the Alpine A522 into the wall of turn 14 during FP3 earlier today. The carbon chassis was cracked and the Alpine pit crew just didn't have enough time to built up a new car to take part.

Kevin Magnussen was the first who entered the brand new track to get into Q2. The Haas driver also set the first lap time this session which was a 1:33.148. After all drivers had set a lap time Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc had driven the quickest lap. He clocked a 1:29.474 min, which was 0.362 sec. quicker than Max Verstappen who was second in the Red Bull. Carlos Sainz was third in the Ferrari on +0.605s.

With 5 minutes to go the drivers in the drop zone were Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri), Nicholas Latifi (Williams), Alex Albon (Williams) and Ocon. Hamilton jumped from P16 to P5 and pushed out Magnussen. Gasly also improved enough end jumped to P14 to push out Zhou Guanyu.

Q2 session
In the second session the other Haas driver who did make it to Q2, Mick Schumacher was the first who went out to set a banker lap of 1:30.423 min.

With five minutes to the fastest driver was again Leclerc. He now drove a lap time of 1:29.130 min. George Russell had not set a lap time up till now and had to get one in to get to Q3. The other driver who had to improve to get into Q3 were Lance Stroll (Aston Martin), Schumacher, Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) and Daniel Ricciardo (McLaren).

In the end only Stroll improved enough to get into Q3. He pushed out Alpine driver Fernando Alonso who only came short 0.04s.

Q3 session
The last 12 minutes was kicked off by Leclerc who was fallowed by his Ferrari team mate Sainz on to the track.
Lelcerc's first flying lap was done in 1:29.055 min. His team mate Sainz was only 0.080 slower. Verstappen did even go faster than both Ferraris and was quickest after the first run with a 1:28.991 min.

In the final run Leclerc and Sainz improved to try and get on top of Verstappen. The Dutchman seemed to ask to much from the Red Bull and had to settle for 3rd.

    Mental mental chicken oriental,winner winner chicken dinner well done Ferrari

    That was so close.... enjoyed quali, but will the race be any good...!!!

  2. ReallyOldRacer

    Who is this guy Bottas who keeps putting the screws to the knight? Not bad for a journeyman hack in a midfield car. Maybe, just maybe, what we've been saying for 5 years re Sir Lewis that the car is >80% of the equation is true. hmm

    • Jax

      You know Old fella, mocking you is like mocking someone in a wheelchair. It's just not fair Lol. So I'm gonna try n be nice. Bottas out qualified LH a few time at Merc, then what happened during the race? He reverts to his typical race pacelessness or clumsy crashes. I may have invented a word here but it suits Bottas tho. 😄 Every driver gets lucky now and again.
      Temper your excitement for him as it comes across as myopic and desperate. Not a good look for a senior citizen unless mental decline is setting in. 😇

    • f1award

      You defence of the failed Bottas is so frail, in the same car Bottas failed year after year and yet still you prattle on. Fast forward to race day, Hamilton beats Bottas, even in a mongrel of a car.

      • shroppyfly

        The only thing that's frail in f1 at the moment is LuLus confidence and racecraft, I mean ,being beaten by a spotty teenager aka King George, your just like all the other sheep, when he wins its how brilliant Hamilton is, when he doesn't... the cars a dog..or to use Rors description Merc have given birth to a Turd..!

        The thing about sheep is they get lost easily much like "the best engineers in f1" the Merc gurus, usually after a race Lala, is so eager to thanks the 2000 staff that helped him be so er lucky, but so far this yr, I dont think hes thanked them once..!

  3. shroppyfly

    course the cars 80%+ Ror, as for Bottas, what a star, he really must be having a good time this , my lad Max , struggling a bit but tomorrow should be good, still not convinced the tracks anything special, but well see .
    8 diff mfr in the top ten, I expect King George to make progress, he wasn't a happy bunny after quali, wonder why Max did far less Quali laps than Curlys boys, hs he saved a set of tyres?

  4. Jere Jyrälä

    Ricciardo returned to his 2021 form, but Bottas faster than both Mercs was surprising & funny.
    However, Max gifted Ferrari a 1-2 via an unforced error, but the race is what ultimately matters.
