Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will start from pole position in tomorrow's race for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

The Briton reached the fifth position on the track in Jeddah this season, and a total of 103 in his career, with a little more than a tenth advantage over his club colleague Valteri Botas. The biggest loser in the qualifiers is the leader in the general classification, Max Ferstappen from Red Bull, who made a mistake in the last round and crashed into the protective fence.

The Dutchman eventually had to settle for third place, 142ths of a second behind Hamilton.

Charles Leclerc, Sergio Perez, Pierre Gusly, Lando Norris, Yuki Cunoda, Esteban Ocon and Antonio Giovinci placed fourth to tenth.

Before the last two races of the season, Ferstappen has an eight-point advantage over Hamilton. The start of the Grand Prix of Saudi Arabia is tomorrow at 18.30.
