The Monegasque had a bitter ending to the second free practice session on Friday when he hit a wall in turn 22 and caused a red flag, ending the session. But the Maranello-based team did a great job and got his SF21 ready to run on Saturday.
Leclerc made the cut to Q3 using a set of medium tyres a, session in which he made a fantastic lap and claimed the fourth fastest time.
"I am very happy with my qualifying. Today was all about regaining confidence on this track and I worked on this from my first lap in FP3 to that last lap in qualifying. I really took it to the limit and P4 is a very good result, one that we did not expect,” said the two-time Grand Prix winner.
“Tomorrow will be a tough but exciting race. Despite it being a street circuit, the three long straights make it possible to overtake more than we had anticipated. Our race pace has been strong all weekend, so we should have a good opportunity if we have a clean race.
"A big thank you to everyone on our team for the incredible job they did last night to put the car back together in perfect shape. I will give it my all to bring home a good result for them."
Scuderia Ferrari’s driver will give it all on Sunday’s race to try and get into the podium.
