Bottas to Start Chinese F1 Grand Prix from Pole Position

SHANGHAI – Finnish Formula One driver Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) is set to start Sunday’s Chinese Grand Prix from the pole position, while his teammate, Briton Lewis Hamilton, will start from the first row.

The standings leader covered the 5,451-meter Shanghai International Circuit in one minute, 31.547 seconds, just 0.023s ahead of his teammate and five-time world champion.

“It’s been a good weekend so far, starting from pole,” Bottas said, according to the Formula 1 Twitter account.

“The lap was ok, not completely how I wanted but luckily it was good enough for pole – the car has been really good this weekend,” he added.

Hamilton, meanwhile, said “Valtteri’s been stellar all weekend.”

“There’s more time left on the table, but I’ll try and get it tomorrow!” he added.

Ferrari’s German driver Sebastian Vettel recorded a time of one minute, 31.848 seconds to start Sunday’s race from the second row, alongside his teammate Charles Leclerc of Monaco.

“I think we had a good session, maybe there was a tiny bit more,” Vettel said. “I actually was quite happy that I got the final attempt because it was quite tight on time.”

Red Bull was the third-best team in the qualifying, as Max Verstappen of the Netherlands came fifth, ahead of Pierre Gasly of France, and subsequently both are to start the race from the third row.

Renault’s drivers, Daniel Ricciardo of Australia and Nico Hulkenberg of Germany, came seventh and eighth respectively.

From the fifth row will start Haas’ Kevin Magnussen and Frenchman Roman Grosjean, who came ninth and tenth respectively.

Meanwhile, Spaniard Carlos Sainz (McLaren) and Mexico’s Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez (Racing Point) did not make the cut to the third qualifying round Q3 and had to settle for the 14th and 12th spots respectively.
