Once again Verstappen did the double on Saturday, with sprint race victory followed by grand prix qualifying pole, just as he did during the Chinese GP and the first revised sprint event of the season.
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc has a second shot at Verstappen as he also returns to the front row alongside the Dutch driver, having qualified and finished second in the sprint.
Carlos Sainz beat Sergio Perez to third in qualifying to put two Ferraris directly behind Verstappen.
McLaren’s Lando Norris bounced back from his first corner clash that put him out of the sprint race to qualify fifth and directly ahead of team-mate Oscar Piastri, with Mercedes pair George Russell and Lewis Hamilton next up in seventh and eighth.
Nico Hulkenberg followed up his points-scoring sprint race with ninth in qualifying for Haas, ahead of fellow midfield rival Yuki Tsunoda in 10th for RB.
But star of the sprint race, Daniel Ricciardo with fourth place for RB, will start the grand prix from last place having qualified 18th and carries a three-place grid penalty that he picked up from China.
