10:20 And that, my friends, was that. Thanks for joining us for qualifying - and we'll see you back here for tomorrow's 70th Anniversary GP. Enjoy the rest of your day!
10:09 Hulkenberg: "Crazy last week! Q2 was tricky, made life hard for myself. It's definitely going to hurt tomorrow, not having last week's experience and going through the motions."
10:08 Hamilton: "It wasn't that great! But Valtteri did a great job and deserves pole. I don't think many people will be managing the softer compound [tomorrow]..."
10:07 Bottas: "Mentally, when you're starting on pole, you can only aim to win the race. And the starting point is good."
10:04 Bottom 10: 11. Ocon, 12. Vettel, 13. Sainz, 14. Grosjean, 15. Russell, 16. Kvyat, 17. Magnussen, 18. Latifi, 19. Giovinazzi, 20. Raikkonen.
10:04 Top 10: 1. Bottas, 2. Hamilton, 3. Hulkenberg, 4. Verstappen, 5. Ricciardo, 6. Stroll, 7. Gasly, 8. Leclerc, 9. Albon, 10. Norris.
10:03 "Yeeha! Get in there Racing Point!" Hulkenberg says.
10:02 Ricciardo couldn't go any faster, and had to be content with P5.
10:01 Hulkenberg fires his way up to P3! Verstappen tries to go quicker, but can't beat the Racing Point!
10:00 That's surely pole for Bottas by 0.1s!
10:00 That's Bottas! Bottas does a 1m25.154s to go faster than Hamilton!
09:59 The Mercs will set the first pair of laps in this stage of the session...
09:58 Norris clears Gasly at Copse to try and give himself some breathing space.
09:57 The next set of runs begins. Red Bulls on softs, Mercs and Ricciardo out on mediums.
09:55 Lots of chat about tyres, but it's mixed things up a bit - obviously, behind you-know-who locking out the front row.
09:54 That Renault is working rather well on mediums, but one wonders if they'll pop Ricciardo out on softs. The Red Bulls may follow suit - we can but see.
09:54 Red Bulls currently P5 and 6, with Stroll edging ahead of Gasly and Norris for a provisional eighth.
