Full results | Qualifying in Saudi Arabia: Verstappen P3 after crash

Qualifying for the inaugural Saudi Arabia Grand Prix may have been the most exciting of the season so far. While Lewis Hamilton had the fastest time, Max Verstappen was on a mega fast lap. However, he was unable to complete this lap due to a heavy touch with the wall.

Mercedes in first and second place

This means that Hamilton will start from pole position on Sunday with teammate Valtteri Bottas in second place. Verstappen was eventually fast enough for third place, but will have to attack the Mercedes drivers on Sunday.

Charles Leclerc always seems to be able to go faster on street circuits and that was also the case in Saudi Arabia. The Monegasque set a good fourth time. Sergio Perez was just faster than Pierre Gasly and can start from P5. The big surprise in the top ten is Antonio Giovinazzi who drove his Alfa Romeo to a good tenth time.
