Alonso does not pass Q1 and will start seventeenth
MADRID, 21 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
A spectacular time of 1:18.750, the only one below 1:19 this Saturday at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, allowed Leclerc to achieve his fourth pole position of the season and lead a front row of the grid in which he will be accompanied by the current world champion, his great rival for the championship this year.
Meanwhile, Sainz, four tenths behind his partner, will start third in the clean zone of the clean, along with the British George Russell (Mercedes), who once again won the game against his partner from the 'silver arrows', Lewis Hamilton , who will start sixth after the Mexican Sergio Pérez (Red Bull).
For his part, Alonso signed a classification to forget from which he said goodbye at the first change. In his attempt to improve his time, the Spaniard ran into too much traffic on the track with just the right amount of time and failed to get through Q1, condemning him to the worst starting position at Montmeló since his first season at Minardi.
