For the first weekend in a long time, there are no penalties or oddities on the grid. Pastor Maldonado managed to qualify, even if it was quite low down. Everyone was within the 107% cutoff time and the only naughty driver out there was Daniel Ricciardo who was caught speeding in the pit lane.

With that being the case, Rosberg keeps his pole position, and will have to fight his teammate into the first corner. Further back, Nico Hülkenberg has a lot to do to improv and the Williams pair will also want to pick up more points today.
