Lewis Hamilton was fastest in qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix, but a grid penalty means he has to give pole position to teammate Valtteri Bottas. Max Verstappen can line up next to the Finn on the front row of the grid. What does the provisional starting grid look like overall for Sunday?

Ferrari were once again on top form on Saturday at Istanbul Park. Charles Leclerc will start third; Carlos Sainz has to close the gap due to an engine change, but he too showed the speed.

AlphaTauri also surprised in the qualifying. Pierre Gasly will start from the second row of the grid next to Leclerc, and Yuki Tsunoda is also in good shape with a ninth place. Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez join the third row, followed by Lando Norris and Lance Stroll. The top ten is completed by Sebastian Vettel, who will start tenth alongside Tsunoda.
