Max Verstappen makes it four pole positions in a row after dominating Austrian Grand Prix qualifying, with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc his closest challenger… as Lewis Hamilton has to settle for fifth

Max Verstappen took pole position for the Austrian Grand Prix in commanding style – his fourth on the bounce and his grip on the season as strong as a coconut crab. It is the fourth time in succession that Perez has not made it into Q3, while Verstappen has taken pole in all of them. Revealing that Red Bull boss Christian Horner had advised his sister team not to take De Vries on, Marko added that he thought Horner had called it right. There was a red flag early on when Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas spun at the exit of the first corner and was left stranded. Verstappen did have one complaint, however, as one of many drivers than fell victim to the Red Bull Ring’s finicky limits. ‘It was very difficult because of all the track limits,’ said Verstappen of his pole position.
