Another pole position for Max Verstappen and four more this season

The Dutch driver was the fastest in qualifying, after a chaotic qualifying.

Finally Max Verstappen took pole, his fourth of the year and the 24th of his career, followed by Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris. 

The Red Bull driver commented after taking pole: "The car was very good, although qualifying was complicated by the weather. As the track got better and better, the car went smoothly. I love coming to Barcelona, the fans are very enthusiastic about the engine".

"My last attempt in qualifying I made a mistake and went off in 5. I was able to make an attempt but the tires were very hot. It was very wet in the wash and on the outside".
