Record Pole for Vettel in Bahrain!

Sebastian Vettel set a record lap in Qualifying to put himself on pole for the 2018 Bahrain Grand Prix.

Qualifying was most eventful for sister teams Red Bull and Toro Rosso. In Q1, a second power failure caused Max Verstappen's Red Bull to go careering into the wall at Turn 2. Despite setting a time that got him through to Q2, Max was unable to take any further part owing to the amount of damage on his car. Q2 saw more damage for Brendon Hartley in the sistering Toro Rosso. A bird flew across the circuit and clipped his front wing, dislodging a section of the bodywork.

Sebastian Vettel was continuously fast throughout all three sessions. He was rewarded in Q3 with pole position. Sebastian also went fast enough to set a new lap record at the Bahrain International Circuit.
