F1 2021 Sao Paulo GP Qualifying Results – Hamilton takes sprint pole

Lewis Hamilton was fastest in Q1, Q2 and Q3 as his Mercedes blew away the opposition in Brazil


Lewis Hamilton dominated Formula 1 qualifying for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix sprint race and was quickest in all sessions, taking pole position for Saturday’s event in Brazil. 

Mercedes decided to put a new internal combustion engine (ICE) in Hamilton’s car, thus the seven-time champion will incur a five-place grid penalty for the race, but before that he will start from the front of the grid in Sprint Qualifying

Hamilton’s F1 title rival and leader of the Drivers’ Championship Max Verstappen was second, almost half a second behind the Mercedes, with Valtteri Bottas rounding out the top three. 

At the back of the grid, Williams driver George Russell was out qualified by teammate Nicholas Latifi for the first time this season.
