-

A sensational performance from Formula 1 rookie Oscar Piastri saw the Australian lead McLaren to a front row lockout for the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix Sprint Race, just pipping Lando Norris to first place. 

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was third in the Sprint Shootout, just ahead of George Russell in the Mercedes. Lewis Hamilton fell foul of track limits in SQ2 and was eliminated early in the shootout, alongside Pierre Gasly in the Alpine.  

Lance Stroll found himself out in the first part of a qualifying session once again, after he failed to make it out of Q1 on Friday which caused an altercation between himself and his personal trainer in the Aston Martin garage.
