Max Verstappen continues his perfect streak in 2024, by signing a seventh pole position in Formula 1 this season which ideally places him on the starting grid. If we add that of the 2023 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the Dutchman equals Ayrton Senna's record, with an eighth consecutive pole position. The pilot Red Bull was ahead in qualifying McLaren byOscar piastri, by less than a tenth of a second in Q3.

But the Australian has since been penalized three places on the grid for hindering the Haas de Kevin Magnussen. The Australian therefore starts in fifth position, which benefits his teammate. Lando Norris. The latest winner therefore offers himself a place on the front row alongside Verstappen, will he be able to achieve a second consecutive success after that of Miami? At home, the Ferrari will start from the second line, Charles Leclerc before Carlos Sainz.

The Mercedes and the RBs then alternate their positions, Russell 6th in front tsunoda, Hamilton et Ricciardo. Nico Hulkenberg completed the top 10 for his part. For Sergio Pérez, it was a cold shower, the Mexican having to settle for 11th position with his Red Bull RB20. Pérez will share the sixth line with Esteban Ocon and his Alpine.

Last on the starting grid, Logan sargeant lost his only time set in Q1, meaning he was technically not qualified for the Grand Prix. Logically, the commissioners decided to draft the American, who largely showed himself to be on pace with 107% during the free practice sessions at the start of the weekend. Fernando Alonso, he will start from the pit lane: the Spaniard, in difficulty during qualifying, changed his suspension settings under Parc Fermé regime.
