LIVEBLOG: Australian Grand Prix Qualifying

Here we are, it's finally time for the first qualifying session of the season! And we've got a terrific session lined up for you today. Nobody really knows who is fastest, Ferrari were on top in testing but it's been Mercedes with the upper hand so far this weekend. Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel could be set for yet another classic battle in Australia, but what about their team mates? Valtteri Bottas and Charles Leclerc won't want to be left behind so soon in the season. Max Verstappen is of course one to watch out for, and who knows what his new Red Bull team mate Pierre Gasly will produce? Daniel Ricciardo is still looking for that first Australia podium, but he may find it difficult to come by racing for Renault, who will be resuming their battle with Haas for the title of best of the rest. You can be sure that Alfa Romeo, Racing Point and McLaren will do their best to stay with them though. It looks like it could be a disappointing wekeend and season for Williams however, with George Russell and the returning Robert Kubica expected to be way off the pace.
