McLaren driver Lando Norris, will start from pole position in the first sprint race of the season in Formula 1, which will drive for The Grand Prix of China.

The final order of drivers in the sprint race will determine the order of drivers in Sunday's race, the fifth of this year's Formula 1 championship.

Norris reached the first position in the rain in Shanghai with a lap of 1:57.940 min., and in the first starting row will be his compatriot, Lewis Hamilton in "Mercedes". Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen will start behind them.

The rain that started to fall at the end of the second qualifying session made a real mess in the third qualifying session, when it intensified.

Many made mistakes and crashed, Verstappen twice, and Lewis Hamilton, Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc once each. Sergio Perez drove well and without a single mistake, but finished qualifying only in sixth place.
