With the points tied going into the last race the battle for pole was going to a important factor in determining which way the title could go.
With a 1:22.109 Verstappen set the pace with his first run of Q3 with the help of a slip stream by his team mate Perez.
In Hamilton’s second run an improved time was not enough to land pole.
Hamilton bagged himself a place alongside Verstappen on the front row which should lead to a thrilling race tomorrow. Tactics look set to play a huge part due to different tyre choice on which the two title rivals will start the race. Hamilton has the slower but more durable medium tyres whilst Verstappen will start on the softs which should help him off the line but will ultimately require an earlier pit stop.
