Lewis Hamilton starts the race from P5 and George Russell is only found in ninth place. Ferrari finally seems to be back in the vanguard. Charles Leclerc is on pole position and teammate Carlos Sainz clocked the third fastest time. Max Verstappen starts on Sunday during the start of the new Formula 1 season from the second starting position. You can see the entire starting line-up at the bottom of this article.
