Original title: Vettel missed Q3 for 8 consecutive stops, saying that the car and his teammates are no longer at the same level
At the Algarve International Circuit, the performance of the two Ferrari drivers was once again polarized. Leclerc will start in fourth place in the race tonight, and this is also his (third) top starting position of the season; Vettel can only start from the 15th position and is about to leave the Prancing Horse. The German driver has been unable to enter Q3 in qualifying for 8 consecutive races, and has created a record low for his personal F1 career.
Leclerc is only 0.438 seconds away from pole position winner Hamilton. The upgrade of SF1000 before this station seems to have effect, but the advantage is not reflected in Vettel’s car. When Q2 is out, the difference between him and his teammates The gap reached 0.552 seconds. Vettel said bluntly after the game: Leclerc and himself are in "different alliances", and there is a "level" gap between the two.
Vettel said after the game: "At this moment, this is beyond my imagination, and I can no longer understand the current situation. This is not just being defeated, it is like another league. I have tried my best. The performance of the speeding lap was quite satisfactory, but it was too slow. There is really not much I can do at the moment, but I can only use my own and the car's potential as much as possible."
"I don't know why it is so difficult to get the tires to reach working temperature, so that it feels a little different every time. As I said on the radio, I felt good when I tried it for the first time in Q2. With neutral tires I thought I could easily run the lap I wanted. This is the goal, but in fact it is not that easy. For the status quo, I am not happy at all, because the car is really struggling and it is difficult to keep everything on track. ."
Before, Vettel would be optimistic about the Sunday race after his poor qualifying performance. Now his evaluation has become pessimistic. “It’s difficult to start from the back row. The whole race on Sunday will definitely be stuck in the car formation, so it’s very likely. It's the same as the last few races. What's more unfortunate is that we can only change things in the car and we can only do our best."
Leclerc gave Vettel spiritual support. "We had a brief chat with Vettel. As far as I know, he may not feel as relaxed about the balance of the car in the car like me. I am now sitting in the cockpit. It feels good, but I believe that the Sunday race will be better for him. As for myself, through Friday’s free practice session, I have a foreboding of getting a good result in qualifying, and I need to do it on Sunday A good start, if I can do this, then I can strive for a brilliant result."

勒克莱尔给予维特尔精神上的支持。 “我们与维特尔（Vettel）进行了简短的交谈。据我所知，他可能不会像我这样对车内的平衡感到放松。我现在坐在驾驶舱里。感觉很好，但我相信对于他自己来说，周日比赛对他来说会更好。对于我自己，通过周五的免费练习赛，我预感在排位赛中会取得不错的成绩，我需要在腾达会官网周日进行一次很好的开端，如果我能做到的话，那么我可以争取辉煌的成绩。” （陶兰加）
