15 | 11 | 2020 GP Türkei / GP Turkey 16 places gained overall and a third podium finish of the season, as well as the best team result of the year. Today, Scuderia Ferrari delivered the perfect antidote to yesterday’s very disappointing qualifying in the Turkish Grand Prix.

14 | 11 | 2020 GP Türkei / GP Turkey  Scuderia Ferrari endured an exceptionally difficult qualifying session at Istanbul Park for tomorrow’s eighth Turkish Grand Prix. For the third time this season, after the races in Belgium and Italy, neither SF1000 made it through to Q3 in an afternoon when rain was the major factor. As happened in Austria, the only other time there has been a wet qualifying this year, it proved impossible to get the tyres up to the right operating temperature. As a result, Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc will start from 12th and 14th on the grid respectively, when the race gets underway at 13.10 local (11.10 CET).

The Formula 1 World Championship is back in Turkey’s Istanbul Park circuit after a nine year break. For all 20 drivers on track, the Friday free practice sessions were spent searching for grip, absent for a variety of reasons. The 5.338 kilometre long track, in the suburb of Tuzla, on the Asian side of the city, was recently resurfaced and is much less abrasive than the previous iteration. Furthermore, this morning, the organisers decided to pressure wash the track to remove the oil and tar that had come to the surface. Added to this was the fact the temperatures were pretty low all day, which all goes some way to explaining why even the fastest lap times were a long way off the track record of 1’24”770 set by Juan Pablo Montoya in 2005, the first time the race was run.
