Vettel and Raikkonen reinforced Ferrari's dominant pace through qualifying in the final practice by setting the pace in Q1.
The first win in Australia was chalked down to luck after a computer glitch for Mercedes, while the second win was because of the team's struggle with their tires in the hot temperatures in Bahrain. "That is why we have won so many races over the last four years".
Teammate Vettel could not match him and was 0.1s down in P2, while Bottas and Hamilton were 0.4s back in P3 and P4 respectively.
Following the Ferraris were the Mercedes W09s as Valtteri Bottas qualified third ahead of reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton. "I think right from the first lap in the first of part of qualifying, in Q1, I was really happy and, in the end, we didn't have to do much on the auto".

Both Mercedes and Ferrari completed Q3 on soft compounds and will be starting at the race tomorrow on the same, while the rest of the grid opts for ultrasofts.
