Jolyon Palmer calls Vettel an amateur who panics in the heat of battle

This time it caught me out so I'm not happy about that, but it'll swing around and come back to others sometime.

"I like Nigel", said Vettel with a grin.

No F1 qualifying session is ever complete without drama and once again drama found itself around Vettel and Verstappen, as it often does. As a result, he was unable to make it to the start line before the clock ticked down to zero, meaning he missed out on a final qualifying lap.

Leclerc dominated the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend but his Ferrari SF90 lost a cylinder during the closing stages, which was eventually traced to a never-before-seen short circuit within an injection system control unit. Jenson Button (306) is the most-capped Brit (Martin Rickett/PA) A 17-year-old Max Verstappen became the youngest driver to start an F1 race at the 2015 Australian GP (David Davies/PA) Louis Chiron of Monaco holds the record for the oldest competitor.

"I struggled to get the flawless lap in but it was good enough".

Behind him was teammate Valtteri Bottas who was given express command over the radio to not let anyone pass him by as they headed towards the end of their out laps.

Ricciardo flies past Verstappen. Even so, Magnussen was only 0.7s adrift of Hamilton on fourth place, while Grosjean ran very wide at the final corner as gusty conditions made life trickier for the drivers. I was sort of predicting that he will try and go down the inside and I tried to cut back, and it worked.

Verstappen was left fuming on Saturday during qualifying when he was overtaken by Ricciardo and Renault teammate Nico Hulkenberg, as well as Ferrari star Sebastian Vettel.

While Dutchman Verstappen echoed Horner's sentiments that it had been a job well done.

"It's annoying because we could have fought for third today, so I guess we'll have to do some more overtaking (in the race)".

Speaking after practice on Friday, Vettel said "this is a topic which is cooked much hotter than eaten", regarding the news he would remain Ferrari's No. 1. He promised to fuck up Vettel and the Renaults in the future in similar situations and knowing Mad Max he will probably do it. Everybody just lining up and they are just f*cking it up.

Leclerc indicated he could be a title contender in Bahrain, but was behind Vettel in both sessions.

Red Bull will be on the lookout for any opportunity to repeat last year's success on the 10th anniversary of that first win.

Hamilton and championship-leading team-mate Valtteri Bottas, who was fifth, set their fastest laps on the grippier soft tyre with Vettel and Leclerc setting their best efforts on the less sticky but more durable medium compound rubber.
