At just 21 years of age, Charles Leclerc has become the second youngest pole-sitter in F1 history, qualifying for the 2019 Bahrain GP with a lap time of 1:27.886 and beating teammate Sebastian Vettel’s lap record from last year in the process. Both Mercedes-AMG cars have been consigned to the second row of the grid for tomorrow’s race, reflective of their second-place status throughout much of the race weekend. Reporting live from Bahrain, Edd Straw and Ben Anderson discuss the five key moments from today's qualifying session.
