The Dutch tyro, winner of two of the last three races, is joined on the front row by the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes occupies the third row with Ferrari's Charles Leclerc.

With seven wins to his name Verstappen is the first Dutch driver to start from the front of a grid after edging Bottas by 18 thousands of a second.
