On the track itself it was immediately quite busy but we didn’t get to see much spectacle during the first qualifying part. Both Haas F1 drivers were immediately out, a shame for the American team but the Haas F1 car has been the slowest on the grid all season.

In Q2 we saw Sergio Perez cut his lap time for not respecting the track limits. The Mexican was certainly not the only rider to have a lap time cut.

In the end, Max Verstappen was fastest in Q2, Lewis Hamilton was even more than three tenths behind the Dutchman, leaving Verstappen clearly the favorite for pole into the final qualifying section.

Max Verstappen went even faster than Bottas and that caused loud cheers in the stands, cheers that only became more deafening when Sergio Perez was a handful of a thousandths faster than Max Verstappen. The many Mexican fans present cried out.

However, there was a second and ultimate attempt in the battle for pole. Lewis Hamilton set the fastest time but Max Verstappen countered and took pole position for the US GP. Lewis Hamilton will start next to Max Verstappen on the front row while Sergio Perez will start the race in third.
