LATEST - Qualifying Results Are In

Hamilton's final qualifying lap was nullified after he fell behind in sectors 1 and 2 then ran off the track tying to regain the time.


Verstappen takes pole, a 3-place grid penalty for Bottas means that Norris will start in 3rd, Perez in 4th and Gasly in 5th.


This will hurt the Mercedes strategy when looking to chase the flying Dutchman out in front.

Both Hamilton and Bottas were dejected in their post qualifying interviews and dismissive of catching Verstappen, although both vowed to try their best.
