However, starting alongside Signs in the front row on Sunday at the British Grand Prix is ​​to defend F1 champion Max Verstappen. Fierce competition.

Verstappen is booed by some of the crowd after an action-packed qualifying session in the rain on Saturday, and he hears most of his track interview questions about jealousy. I said I couldn't.

"The first pole position, it's always special, especially with wet silverstone," Sainz said. "Keep it cool throughout the session and I decided to push towards the end."

Leclerc said his Ferrari felt "competitive" but he couldn't challenge the pole position due to a mistake.

"He wasn't worth standing on the pole because it was the lap that needed to put everything together, not as a driver," he said.
