Chinese Grand Prix 2024 – Sprint Qualifying Results

McLaren driver Lando Norris made the most of the wet conditions in Shanghai and will start from pole position for the Sprint Race at the 2024 Chinese Grand Prix

-

Lando Norris clinched a dramatic Formula 1 pole position during the rain-affected sprint qualifying at the 2024 Chinese Grand Prix race. After a red-flag interruption due to a fire on-track, Norris‘ fastest lap was initially deleted for running wide, only to be reinstated post-session, demoting Lewis Hamilton to second place.

This shuffle came after Formula 1‘s wet-weather specialists, including Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen, demonstrated their prowess, with Verstappen securing fourth despite only completing one clean lap.

The conditions worsened as the SQ2 progressed, culminating in a rain-soaked end. Notably, George Russell struggled, encapsulating Mercedes‘ disappointing season, as an early poor lap and increasing rain hampered any chance of improvement, leaving him just shy of home crowd favourite Zhou Guanyu, who finished tenth.

Charles Leclerc put his Ferrari into barriers but was able to continue. Carlos Sainz managed to secure a spot in the top five, with Leclerc placing seventh, sandwiched between impressive performances from Sergio Perez and Oscar Piastri.
