Valtteri Bottas has credited his pole position in Baku to a vital tow he got on his final qualifying lap.
“I am really happy for pole, it is a nice feeling to get it on the last lap,” Bottas told reporters in Baku.
“It was a nice last lap and like I said Ferrari have been really strong. Obviously Charles is out with a mistake but as a team we did a really good job to be where we are now after such a difficult practice.
“It is all about small margins and I did get a good tow on that last lap. Of course, the corners I have to drive as well. It is all about small details and I managed to hit the sweet spot.”
“It was getting trickier and trickier and we are not supposed to race that late here but I got them to work somehow,” he explained.
