Max Verstappen secured a dominant pole position for the 2024 Chinese Grand Prix, marking Red Bull’s 100th pole in their history, putting the Dutchman first on the starting grid. Verstappen set a blistering pace at the Shanghai International Circuit, and his final lap in Q3 clocked in at 1:33.660s, ensuring his top spot remained uncontested.

Sergio Perez clinched the second position, making it a Red Bull one-two on the starting grid for the 2024 Chinese GP. Fernando Alonso displayed impressive form by placing his Aston Martin third, followed by the McLaren duo of Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri, while Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc secured the sixth spot on the starting grid.

Carlos Sainz recovered from an early spin in Q2 that triggered red flags, and will start seventh. George Russell managed to lead Mercedes by securing the eighth position, with Nico Hulkenberg in the Haas and Sauber’s Valtteri Bottas rounding out the top ten positions.

Further down the 2024 Chinese GP starting grid, Lewis Hamilton had a surprising setback, finishing in 18th place, which added to the drama of the qualifying session for the Chinese GP, leaving fans anticipating a dynamic race day.
