Valtteri Bottas secures pole for Mercedes at 1,000th GP

Thai F1 driver Albon survives spectacular crash | Bangkok Post: news

Valtteri Bottas will start Formula One's 1,000th world championship race from pole position after leading Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton in a front row lockout at the Chinese Grand Prix on Saturday.

"Valtteri has been stellar all weekend".

Discussing his lap, Bottas said: "It's been a good weekend so far - I felt really comfortable in the practice, but honestly I struggled in Q3 to get a flawless lap".

Albon sat still for an agonizing moment before apologizing to his team over the radio. He beat teammate Charles Leclerc to third place by 0.017s, but admitted his auto was not quick enough to take the fight to the Mercedes duo, adding "they are bloody quick in the corners".

Max Verstappen was seventh for Red Bull, with the team appearing to have lost some speed after a promising showing in Friday's practice sessions. Ferrari are particularly quick on the straights.

A contractor was also reported killed, but the military said Tuesday that the man, an Afghan citizen, survived with injuries. Three U.S. service members were also wounded in the incident near Bagram air base close to Kabul, the statement said.


Hamilton said: "I kept pushing right to the end". "The Ferraris squeezed it all out and were very fast again on the straights, but we were quicker in the corners and that was ultimately how we stayed ahead today. I have struggled. There is time left on the table, but I will try and get it back tomorrow".

He was later given the all-clear but will miss qualifying because his ruined auto will not be fixed in time, Toro Rosso said. "So it'll be a tough fight for the win, but we are going to fight for it".

"Everyone in front of me is starting with the same byres so we'll see what happens in the race".

"First of all it's important because when I read some of the stuff, it looks like a little bit of complaining that we are lacking straight-line speed".

Team-mate Gasly was held up behind him and the Haas drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean were also caught out.

Alexander Albon of Red Bull Toro Rosso walked away from a stunning crash on Saturday in the final practice session ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix.

Raikkonen's Italian team mate Antonio Giovinazzi failed to set a time due to engine problems and starts 19th and last on the grid.

As a result he will start from the pit lane.

"I am OK. More angry and disappointed than anything else".

"On my driving I made a big step up from yesterday but there was still places I wanted to work on, and the last corner was one of them". "We had a good chance of being in Q3 (the top 10 shootout)". "The auto has the pace in it to compete at the front, we just need to find the right set-up".
