The Mercedes driver was fastest on the first runs in Q3 with a time of 1m34.828s.

He then shaved a few hundredths off that time on the second run to post a 1m34.779s to consolidate his position at the top of the timesheets.

Teammate Valtteri Bottas was second fastest, 0.194s slower, but has to serve a back-of-the-grid penalty for power unit changes.

This means Max Verstappen will start second having set the third fastest time, 0.360s off the pace.

Alex Albon was sixth fastest in the second Red Bull, nine tenths off the pace.

Lance Stroll took the second Racing Point to 13th, 0.038s faster than the second Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat.
