Max Verstappen lead the pack ahead of Qualifying, as Charles Leclerc finished in P2, with Carlos Sainz in P3.

Sergio Perez in P4, just ahead of Lewis Hamilton in P5, who seems like he feels a little more confident in that Mercedes. Fernando Alonso finished 6th, followed by George Russell in P7.

  • Charles Leclerc: The Monegasque will receive a 10-place grid drop, as Ferrari have mounted a new TC and ICE to his car.

  • Zhou Guanyu: F1's first ever Chinese driver has also received a 5-place grid penalty, as Alfa Romeo replaced his car's ICE.

  • Fernando Alonso: The 2-time Champion will also receive a 5-place grid drop, as Alpine have also gone for a new ICE.
