George Russell denied spectacular pole at Belgian GP by last-gasp Max Verstappen lap as Lewis Hamilton qualifies third

GEORGE RUSSELL stunned Spa to qualify SECOND behind Max Verstappen for the Belgian Grand Prix. Russell, who is expected to eventually be confirmed as Hamilton’s team-mate, said: “I thought we would have done a good job to get out of Q1 but I had so much confidence and the car was feeling great. Hamilton’s best time was pushed aside by Russell, who at one point looked like bagging his first-ever Formula One pole. Verstappen struggled on his first Q3 hot lap yet soared to pole as he looks to fight back in the championship duel with Hamilton. “But it was a real struggle out there and I am happy to be on the second row.”.
