Force India

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton took his 5th pole position at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. He even bagged pole by eight-tenths from Sebastian Vettel. However, the big story of the day was the Racing Point Force India duo. Historically speaking, Force India generally perform well at Spa. Especially after Giancarlo Fisichella’s shock pole back in 2009.

Esteban Ocon and Sergio Perez locked out the 2nd row in a surprise turn of events. This is certainly a welcome result given all that has transpired in the past week. The team has been through a lot, from going into administration to being rescued. From a name-change to getting their points taken away, the team has seen it all. So, a result like this is an encouraging sign.

Here is how Twitter reacted to qualifying at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
