In qualifying before his 100th Grand Prix as Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel has to defeat only the Dutchman Max Verstappen. The German Formula 1 racer is racing in second place and also leaves behind world champion Lewis Hamilton, who had previously dominated the third free practice.
Max Verstappen has secured the penultimate pole position of the 2019 Formula One season. The 22-year-old Dutchman relegated Sebastian Vettel to second place on Saturday in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix (Sunday, 18.10 / RTL and in the live ticker on n-tv.de). The four-time world champion from Heppenheim missed in the Ferrari 0.123 seconds to the rival in the Red Bull. He denies in Brazil the 100th Grand Prix for the Scuderia. Third was Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes just two weeks after his sixth title win. Vettel's team-mate Charles Leclerc finished fourth, but the Monegasse has to retire ten places after changing the engine on the grid. More info coming soon.
