Ferrari's horrible run continued at Monza in qualifying with Charles Leclerc in P13 and Sebastian Vettel only P17.
Vettel's qualifying came to an early end as he failed to get in a proper final attempt due to the mess that was going on in front of him between Latifi, Ocon, Raikkonen and Russell.
It wasn't much better for his teammate as Leclerc was comfortably knocked out in Q2. The winner of the Italian Grand Prix last year admitted his lap was "the best I can do" as he ended up in 13th.
After the huge low of Spa, that shocking form has continued into their first home race of the 2020 season. Scoring a point will be a massive achievement for them if we see a normal race tomorrow.
Charles Leclerc – P13: "Coming into the weekend we expected it to be like this. We knew that Spa and here are probably the two worst tracks for us but this is our situation at the moment. It’s tough, because once you do a good lap and you end up P13 it doesn’t feel good. But for now I need to try and extract the maximum out of the car in the situation we are in.
Of course, it hurts even more as this is our home race, but it’s the reality for us at present, unfortunately. We need to work and hopefully Mugello, which is still home soil for Ferrari, will be a bit better than here. Last weekend and here, we have been trying many things on the car, but we are not finding a solution. So we need to keep our head down, stay motivated, and I’m sure better days will come"
Sebastian Vettel – P17: "There’s not much to say about this session. There were a lot of cars in front of me when I started my second quick lap. In that moment I knew it wouldn’t be possible to improve my time. I don't know why the other drivers started to overtake on the warm up lap. I found myself in the middle of the mess and didn't get a lap. Everybody should stay in the position they are in the line, then everybody opens a gap and it should be fine to set a time.
From our side, probably we didn’t pick the right time to get back on track and some others managed to do better than us, as they improved. Of course starting from so far back on the grid means it will not be an easy race, but you never know what can happen and we will see what we can do."
