The Canadian was one of the best fighters that motorsport has ever seen. For him, a race was only over when the last tire stopped moving. For millions of fans, he was the pilot with the greatest fighter heart. He lost his life at the age of 32. After only 67 races and six wins.
May – not a month for champions
In qualifying for the Belgian GP, there was a fatal misunderstanding when overtaking between Villeneuve and the German Jochen Mass (March). The result: Villeneuve was thrown out of the Ferrari with the whole seat and remained lifeless on a wire fence.
On May 1, 1994, racing lost Ayrton Senna in Imola, one of the greatest drivers in history. The best pilot, as Senna is still revered around the world today. By the way, May is the only month in which none of the 33 world champions were born!
Giovinazzi leads Kimi …
The last 60 minutes before the pole hunt experienced a premiere after at least 20 minutes at 24 degrees: Giovinazzi and Räikkönen appeared in first and second place in the time computer. Has the Alfa-Sauber C41 suddenly got faster overnight?
Well, the “miracle” was put into perspective when the usual suspects stepped on the gas for the first time. But the Hinwil cars stayed tuned for a long time! After 28 minutes, Hamilton was ahead of Bottas, Verstappen and Leclerc – the Pole man will probably come from this quartet.
Incidentally, in the 30 Barcelona battles so far, the driver from the best starting position has won 22 times! The winner started five times from second position …
Three «victims» wanted …
For Räikkönen (9th) and Giovinazzi (16th – before Vettel) it is really only about not being one of the five “victims” who are eliminated in the first 18 qualifying minutes. The Haas duo Schumacher and Mazepin (who is slowly getting a little faster) seem to be set as before. But which trio still gets it?
The result of the third training session in Barcelona.
