F1 2023 Qatar GP Starting Grid – Final Grid Positions

Max Verstappen once again was the class of the field and will start from first place on the grid for the 2023 Qatar GP

-

Max Verstappen will be first on the starting grid for the 2023 Qatar Grand Prix after a sensational lap to claim pole position in qualifying in the Red Bull.

Just behind the Dutchman, Mercedes pair of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton line up second and third, respectively, on the grid at the Losail International Circuit.

Fernando Alonso saw something of a return to form in the Aston Martin as he will start fourth in Qatar, just ahead of Charles Leclerc in the Ferrari and Oscar Piastri of McLaren.

Starting seventh and eighth on the grid in Losail are Alpine drivers Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon, with Valtteri Bottas in the Alfa Romeo ninth.

Lando Norris, who had a lap time deleted and would have been second, instead starts 10th in the McLaren.
