Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc brilliantly took the pole at Baku, delving deep into the limits of what is humanly possible around the dual-character street circuit in Azerbaijan – but the loud talk, again, was of the pace and polish of Red Bull’s Sergio Perez, who again out-qualified the World Champion.
