Leclerc will sit on pole thanks to drafting behind Sainz, Jr. to allow him to get the fastest qualifying time as Sainz, Jr. is starting at the back of the field for tomorrow’s race due to penalties incurred for taking an extra engine and additional parts after his engine caught on fire at the 2022 Austrian Grand Prix.
