Charles Leclerc said his astonishing Q2 lap in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix was his very best after he got over slippery conditions to secure a superb Saturday for Sauber. Both Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson qualified in the top 10 at Interlagos, with Ericsson starting the race in sixth – his best ever position.
Q2 was played out under moody skies in Sao Paulo, with rain arriving towards the end of the session to seemingly end the drop-zone's hopes of progressing – with Leclerc in the bottom five at the time.
However, the 2019 Ferrari driver pulled out an astonishing lap, made all the more incredible as no other driver managed to improve in the session.
