Max Verstappen denies Lando Norris at the last to take British F1 GP pole

They were on their feet roaring their approval for the British driver as he appeared to have claimed pole, their joy echoing round the old airfield, only for hearts to be broken when normal service was resumed seconds later when Max Verstappen pipped him. In the final hot runs in Q3, Norris, who has struggled in a recalcitrant McLaren all season, briefly gave fans the chance to dream of an almighty upset and a British triumph at his home grand prix. Just as he had provided the crowd with a welcome shock it was more than Norris had expected. I wasn’t expecting for myself to be here, we are very happy with the result,” he said. Norris said this week winning the this grand prix in front of his home fans was the goal he wanted to achieve most.
