Portuguese Grand Prix: Valtteri Bottas takes pole position

And Bottas’ pole time was set on his first lap, as neither Mercedes driver was able to improve when they switched to the medium tyre for their final runs, even though they both preferred its feel. “Qualifying has been the weak point for me in the first two races getting the tyres to work. That first lap was decent but I had a bit of a moment in Turn Four and went a bit off track. Perez, who out-qualified Verstappen at the last race in only his second outing for Red Bull, was again impressive, just 0.144secs behind the Dutchman.
