Hamilton Uncomfortable Racing In Saudi Arabia

Lewis Hamilton claimed a dramatic pole position for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and Mercedes secured a one-two after Max Verstappen crashed on his final lap of qualifying. With Hamilton on provisional pole, Verstappen was pushing hard and was ahead of his title rival’s time when he put his car into the wall on the final corner of his lap at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.

It meant Verstappen was unable to improve upon his time and the Dutchman will start Sunday’s race behind both Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, although Red Bull will also have to fix his car ahead of tomorrow’s race. Hamilton, who is eight points behind Verstappen in the drivers’ standings ahead of the penultimate race of the race, earlier escaped a grid penalty after he was summoned to the stewards for two separate incidents during the final practice session.

Hamilton on pole for Saudi Arabian GP

Max Verstappen: “It’s of course terrible. I knew the pace was there and it showed in the last lap. I don’t know what happened but I locked up and I clipped the rear – so I had to stop. P3 is a bit disappointing knowing the lap I was on but it shows that the car is quick. Let’s see where we can do in the race.”

Hamilton goes fastest in Q3 with a 1:28.035, but that’s much slower than his best time in Q2.

And wow, look at this! Verstappen was clocking faster through the sectors and he crossing the line four-tenths faster to take provisional pole!

It’s a 1:27.653 for Verstappen!

Oh my word! Hamilton almost loses control of his car coming through the apex, with his tyres sliding all over the place. He is forced to use the run-off area, and thankfully there was one there available to him.

That ended his flying lap but will go again when crossing the line.

Now, this is where things get interesting. After Hamilton escaped a grid penalty for those two incidents in practice, can he claim a pole position ahead of Sunday’s race?

It’s still so hard to tell who is faster out there – Hamilton or his title rival Verstappen. They’ve been exchanging top spot so far.

Whoever grabs pole could claim a huge advantage in the title race – these are some huge moments in the season! Q3 is underway.
