Max Verstappen then the rest. This is how we can very quickly summarize these Austrian Grand Prix qualifications. Despite being in good shape and remaining in pole position, Lando Norris helplessly witnessed the Batavian's show of force.

Ahead for 20 thousandths in Catalonia seven days earlier, the pilot McLaren this time conceded more than 4 tenths on the timesheet. 0“404 very precisely, this while he finished 2!

« It was a good qualifying session, put Lando Norris into perspective, aware that he could not stand up to his rival. We couldn't do much today (SATURDAY). Max was in his own world. He was definitely faster than what we had in store so I'm happy.

The conditions were delicate, perhaps more difficult than yesterday (Friday during Sprint qualifying). It was much tighter (with the others). So it was more difficult to put everything end to end on a lathe. Luckily, it was enough so I took."

As for the race, Lando Norris was more optimistic, emphasizing the strengths of McLaren, often more comfortable on Sunday than on Saturday.

« Looking at our pace, it's obvious that we're going to have to give a lot and we'll probably need something extra to beat Max's pace.He says. But I will try. I will do a better job than this (SATURDAY) Morning. It's a long race and a lot can happen and usually we are better in the race than in qualifying. » See you at 15:00 p.m. this Sunday to get a first answer.

This is indeed a bit of a dream and seems to promise a Dutch victory tomorrow, one more!
