Formula 1: Chinese Grand Prix

Max Verstappen won the Formula 1 Chinese Grand Prix qualifying, and he will start from pole position. How and when to watch the race are as follows:.
Verstappen achieved a double on Saturday after the season’s opening sprint race, winning both the sprint race and the grand prix pole position, which was Red Bull’s 100th pole in Formula One.

Fernando Alonso of Aston Martin, who recovered from retiring from the Chinese GP sprint race after getting a puncture in a collision with Carlos Sainz, was ahead of Sergio Perez on an all-Red Bull front row.

Having failed to duplicate his Friday sprint race pole, Lando Norris led the McLaren charge in fourth place during qualifying. Oscar Piastri, a teammate, will start fifth.

After that, both Ferraris finish sixth and seventh, respectively, but Aston Martin has objected to the qualifying results because of Sainz’s red flag crash in the second qualifying round.

It was a nightmare qualifying for Lewis Hamilton, having finished second in the sprint race, as the Mercedes driver was knocked out in Q1 and will start in 18th.
