Lance Stroll claims shock Istanbul GP pole position as Hamilton and Verstappen falter dramatically in soaking qualifying

LANCE STROLL produced a stunning lap to grab a maiden Formula One pole in Turkish Grand Prix qualifying. But Racing Point pulled a rabbit out of the hat in Q3 to put Stroll on pole and Sergio Perez third. The team’s decision to go early on the Intermediates allowed both drivers to warm their tyres up quicker than their rivals. Two red flags interrupted Q1 amid constant complaints of drivers being unable to see through thick spray. A number of drivers improved their times despite the flags, all of which face an investigation by stewards. That session saw both Ferrari and McLaren cars fall out of qualifying, and they will start in the middle of the pack for tomorrow’s race at 10.10am UK time.
