Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas indulged us with a tense and close battle for pole position, eventually won by the former, but with both lining up on the front row of the grid. Daniel Ricciardo caused red flags in the final qualifying session, after crashing into the barriers, leaving just over three minutes for the final shootout for pole.

Jolyon Palmer was unable to participate in qualifying after the fire that took out his Renault in final practice. On the other hand, Lance Stroll got through to the top ten for the second time, and was able to participate in the session for the first time.
