Max Verstappen set himself up for a record-equalling 10th successive win by taking pole position for the Australian Grand Prix. Verstappen won 10 races last season, a feat never before achieved in the sport’s history. Verstappen has now taken pole in all three races this year. ‘It was a bit unexpected today, but I am very happy with Q3,’ said Verstappen. Lewis Hamilton had a terrible day, qualifying only 11th best, 0.059sec off team-mate George Russell, who ended up seventh. The pair of them stand at 26-26 in qualifying since Russell joined Mercedes. Racing Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo will start his home race from 18th position after having his time deleted at the end of Q1. Yet Albon will start the race after he was handed his team-mate Logan Sargeant’s car.
