1 – Max VERSTAPPEN (Red Bull Racing)
2 – Sergio PEREZ (Red Bull Racing)
3 – Charles LECLERC (Ferrari). Max VERSTAPPEN: Yeah, it was a bit of an up and down qualifying, you know. And yeah, we had a bit of a scare, the car turned off before the first run. Verstappen: We knew that we had a quick car, I think we just made a few mistakes in Brazil, in hindsight. And then you know it’s going to be a bit of a struggle. Do you think that’s there’s going to be a repeat tomorrow?. Verstappen: No, well, so going into the weekend, we gave Checo the option to choose what he would like: do you want to go first or behind? I think we’ll have to see once we are in the race, and what are the opportunities at that moment. Verstappen: Maybe the layout, but honestly it is a bit of a mystery but even for us we didn’t expect to be so slow in Brazil so clearly we don’t always seem to understand where we are really good or just pretty average. Do you think there’ll be more overtaking or it will be very similar to the races before?. Verstappen: Well, I think in general on average, this year, it has been a bit better to follow of course.
