Lewis Hamilton On Pole For Bahrain GP Ahead Of Bottas & Verstappen

Lewis Hamilton sealed his seventh F1 title last time out at Istanbul, but the Brit is pushing on as he looks to score maximum points from the last three races of 2020.

Lewis Hamilton has taken pole position for the 2020 Bahrain Grand Prix after outpacing his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas by around three-tenths of a second.

As has been the case at most grand prix this season, Max Verstappen was best of the rest and put his Red Bull third on the grid.

Alex Albon qualified P4, over one second off Hamilton’s fastest lap and six-tenths of a second off of Verstappen.

Sergio Perez managed a lap good enough for fifth on the grid, ahead of the two Renault drivers, with Daniel Ricciardo once again outqualifying Esteban Ocon.

Pierre Gasly, Lando Norris, and Daniil Kvyat round out the top ten.

Both Ferrari’s failed to make it into Q2, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc qualifying P11 and P12, respectively.
