Lando Norris put in a last gasp effort to take pole position from Max Verstappen by 0.020s, with third to fifth – Lewis Hamilton, George Russell and Charles Leclerc – covered by only 0.030s.

Oscar Piastri had looked like he was in with a chance of joining his McLaren team-mate Norris at the front but an error on his final lap saw him bail into the pits as he will start in ninth.

Carlos Sainz, Pierre Gasly, Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon made up positions six to nine, although Red Bull driver Perez will drop three grid slots due to a penalty awarded post-race at the Canadian Grand Prix.
