Here's the report from qualifying: https://www.autosport.com/f1/news/f1-turkish-gp-hamilton-tops-qualifying-bottas-on-pole/6683792/
Top 10 in qualifying: Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen, Leclerc, Gasly, Alonso, Perez, Norris, Stroll, Tsunoda.
Hamilton cements the best time in qualifying - but with his 10-place grid penalty, Bottas has pole for tomorrow!
Russell looked good to get out of the drop, but goes wide at the final corner and will not progress!
Alonso outpaces the Red Bulls to go third fastest, before Gasly shuffles him down a spot with his own bid for third.
Perez moves up to third, as Verstappen's quickest first sector doesn't translate into top spot with a lock-up into the final collection of corners.
Vettel, Stroll, Schumacher, Russell and Sainz currently occupy the bottom five with seven minutes left.
Verstappen plonks his car into first place with a 1m24.002s, but Hamilton quickly eclipses that with a 1m23.595s.
Perez has had a spin on his opening run, snapping at Turn 1 and ending up sideways. Almost a carbon copy of Tsunoda's Q1 spin.
