Well, what is there to say but what a spectacular lap by Daniel Ricciardo. Sure, he was on softs but so were many in this session. The big anomaly to this would be Lewis Hamilton who set his time on mediums.
Sebastian Vettel brought out a late red flag when he popped the power unit in his Ferrari.
No sooner had the session restarted when Antonio Giovinazzi pulled off the circuit. With less than 2 minutes left, the remainder of the session was called off.

Great laps from Valtteri Bottas for taking pole, Nico Hulkenberg for third, Daniel Ricciardo for fifth and Pierre Gasly for seventh.

Max Verstappen was the only driver in the top 10 to qualify on the hard tyre. This was the medium and preferred compound for last weekend's event.
All others are on the medium which could be a problem in relation to tyre management. That said, it will probably be a 2 stop race for most teams if they learned anything from last weekend.

These results are provisional and subject to the ongoing appeal against Racing Point's rear brake ducts.
