SOCHI, RUSSIA (AFP) - Ferrari's Charles Leclerc reeled off his fourth consecutive pole position with another stunning lap on Saturday (Sept 28), as he topped the times in qualifying for Sunday's Russian Grand Prix.

The in-form Monegasque clocked a best lap of 1min 31.628sec to improve his time in the final seconds and set up an end to Mercedes' five-year domination of the event since it began in 2014.

After three successive Ferrari wins, two from Leclerc, he appears set to extend the scarlet Scuderia's run of success to four races, his performance making him the first Ferrari driver since Michael Schumacher secured four straight poles in 2000 when Leclerc was aged three.
