Sebastian Vettel spotted an inquisitive dog at Bahrain during Free Practice session. It was during the red flag brought out by Alex Albon’s massive crash during the session. Meanwhile, Sebastian Vettel saw a glorious opportunity and grabbed it by both hands.
Vettel broke into Baha Men’s famous song, ‘Who let the dogs out?’. As the dog was taken away to safety, the German was singing in all his glory over the team radio. The video went viral on the social media platform after the session.
During qualifying, Carlos Sainz had an unfortunate spin. This led to another red flag session, and Sebastian Vettel sarcastically said, “don’t tell me it’s another dog.” The radio clarified that it was just Carlos Sainz facing the wrong side of the track in his McLaren.
Ferrari drivers had locked out the front row during their visit to Bahrain last year. However, the story is much different this year. Both the drivers were knocked out in Qualifying 2. Sebastian Vettel will start the race at P11 as Charles Leclerc at P12.
All three Ferrari power unit teams lapped slower than their last visit at the venue. Ferrari’s fastest lap was 1.271 seconds slower when compared to 2019.
The SF1000 showed some improvements in the recent race at the Istanbul Park. But they failed to impress at the power-demanding track. However, even at the Turkish GP, the Ferrari drivers started at around the same position. But this time around, there’s no rain scheduled to help their cause.
Lewis Hamilton claimed his 10th pole position of the season. He was at the top of all three qualifying sessions under the lights. His teammate Valtteri Bottas locked out the front grid at P2. Meanwhile, Max Verstappen could only manage a P3 start. The championship is already decided. However, Bottas and Verstappen are set to battle it out for the second position on the standings.
