Kimi Raikkonen finally grabbed a pole position after waiting 129 races since his last one at Magny Cours in 2008. Back then, four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel hadn’t even won a race yet but fast forward nine years and he’s now Kimi’s teammate at Ferrari.
The two of them could hardly be separated in qualifying, but they were… by 43 hundredths of a second! It sure doesn’t sound like much, and it isn’t, as this video below shows.
It’s perhaps even more amazing to think that Valtteri Bottas in third was just 0.002 seconds slower than Vettel.
How good is qualifying this year!?
