F1 QUALIFYING LIVE – Follow latest updates from Portuguese Grand Prix after 30-minute delay is caused by Sebastian Vettel incident in practice… with Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas eyeing up another first row lockout
F1 qualifying gets underway at the Portuguese Grand Prix this afternoon as Mercedes duo Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas look to continue their dominance on the circuit.
There has already been some drama as Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Racing Point’s Lance Stroll collided into turn one midway through the second practice session and Pierre Gasly’s AlphaTauri caught fire after a ‘systems blackout’, according to his garage.
The final practice session saw Bottas record the quickest time with team-mate Hamilton in second, as the rest of the field remained rather compressed with a late red flag calling it off a minute early due to debris on the track.
