Saturday’s qualifying brought a lot of emotions during and after the session. Another pole position of the season was taken by championship leader and reigning champion Max Verstappen. Haas’ Nico Hulkenberg surprisingly got the second fastest time. After qualifying, however, the judges punished the German for being three places behind at the start of the race. Analysis showed the 36-year-old was driving too fast after displaying the red flag.
