Max Verstappen stormed to his eighth consecutive pole position to continue his qualifying dominance in 2024.

Red Bull looked to be on the backfoot heading into qualifying as Verstappen struggled with the handling of his RB20.

However, Verstappen made the most of a slipstream down to Turn 1 from Nico Hulkenberg to see off McLaren's charge.

Oscar Piastri had secured a front row start but was handed a three-place grid penalty for impeding Kevin Magnussen in Q1.

This promotes Lando Norris into second, while the two Ferraris move up to third and fourth, Charles Leclerc ahead of Carlos Sainz.

George Russell is the lead Mercedes driver in qualifying again, while Yuki Tsunoda impressed with yet another Q3 appearance.

Sergio Perez endured a miserable day and will look to recover from 11th on the grid.
