Charles Leclerc in only his second race with Ferrari took pole position for today’s Bahrain Grand Prix becoming the youngest Ferrari pole sitter sparking an F1 journalist to tweet:

Two weeks is a long time in #F1. Congrats to @ScuderiaFerrari on the turnaround, and to @Charles_Leclerc on a fabulous qualifying session. First pole. So composed. Kimi who? #BahrainGP

This particular journalist has obviously forgot that in his very first race for Ferrari in 2007, Kimi Raikkonen took pole position, won the race and secured the fastest lap.

The Iceman went on to win the championship in his first season for Ferrari, something which both Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso failed to do.

Kimi was so well respected within Ferrari he was brought back to the team to replace Fernando Alonso.

The Finn remains Ferrari’s last championship winner and their last race winner which was Austin last year.

Kimi maybe the oldest driver in Formula One however he is extremely talented, look at what he did with Lotus and also look at what he is doing with his current team Alfa Romeo Racing scored top ten positions in qualifying.

Kimi and Charles have also managed to beat Sebastian Vettel in the same car and the German is a four time world champion.

As the saying goes, If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all!
