Lewis Hamilton wants a 3-team fight

On a track that would normally suit Ferrari or Red Bull, Lewis Hamilton stuck his Mercedes on pole. Flanking him will be Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. Behind the trio are Valtteri Bottas, Kimi Raikkonen and Daniel Ricciardo respectively.

Completing the top 10 are Sergio Perez, Romain Grosjean, Esteban Ocon and Nico Hulkenberg. Just missing out are Fernando Alonso, Carlos Sainz Jr, Charles LeClerc, Marcus Ericsson and Pierre Gasly in Q2. Missing out in Q1 were the usual suspects, Brendon Hartley, Sergey Sirotkin, Lance Stroll and Stoffel Vandoorne. However, they were joined by Kevin Magnussen who was caught out late into the session.
