Charles Leclerc became Ferrari’s youngest-ever pole winner when he set the fastest time in qualifying for the 2019 Bahrain Grand Prix, and took second place behind teammate Sebastian Vettel in the all-time list.

Leclerc, who became F1’s 99th pole sitter, beat the likes of Fernando Alonso, Rubens Barrichello and Lewis Hamilton to second place on the all-time list, which is led by Vettel thanks to his pole for Scuderia Toro Rosso at Monza in 2008.

Below is the all-time list (age in years month days)…
