The grid for Sunday's race also features McLaren's Lando Norris and Alonso on the second row, highlighting the competitive nature of the field. Oscar Piastri impressed by securing the fifth spot in the second McLaren, leading the Ferrari pair of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, with George Russell of Mercedes starting in eighth position.

Verstappen's dominance continued from the morning sprint, where he overcame electrical issues to secure a commanding victory, finishing 13 seconds ahead of his closest rival, Lewis Hamilton. This triumph further extended Verstappen's championship lead over Perez by 25 points.

While Hamilton initially found joy in securing second place in the sprint, his qualifying session took a turn for the worse when he locked up near the end of his final flying lap, relegating him to a disappointing 18th place on the grid. This marked the first time since the 2022 Saudi Grand Prix that the seven-time world champion failed to advance beyond Q1.

Carlos Sainz also faced a moment of drama during qualifying when he spun out at the final bend, causing significant damage to his car. Despite the setback, Sainz managed to return to the pits for repairs and ultimately secured the third-fastest time, ensuring his place in the top 10 shootout for the race.

Verstappen's pole position and dominant performance set the stage for an exhilarating race on Sunday, with rivals eager to challenge his supremacy and capitalize on any opportunity to narrow the gap in the championship standings.
