Hamilton will start on pole on the best day of the year for Fernando Alonso

Lewis Hamilton resisted Max Verstappen and his rush for pole and will start from first place at the Qatar Grand Prix. With the World Cup in a handkerchief and on a circuit where overtaking is difficult, the Briton took a giant step to keep his aspirations intact. Fernando Alonso will start in fifth place after a classification to frame where he was until third at the end of Q2.

The Mercedes regained the dominance of yesteryear – we will see if with irregularities as happened in Brazil – beating a Red Bull team that could not get Sergio Pérez in Q3. Verstappen saved the furniture for his team by getting a place in the front row, although he will have to be careful with a Bottas who will start third tomorrow and will try to help Hamilton.

Fernando Alonso made a very complete qualification taking all the possible juice out of his Alpine and beware that he could be facing his first great opportunity of the season to make a podium. Keep in mind that he leaves through the clean zone and that he will be in a position to sneak into the front zone if there is a war between Red Bull and Mercedes.

The Asturian will crouch his opportunity as will a Carlos Sainz who will start the race seventh. The Madrilenian will seek to follow in the wake of a Fernando Alonso who lived his most round classification. Ferrari is in the middle of a fight with McLaren for third place in the Constructors’ World Championship and they will look at this race in the rear-view mirror. A great race awaits us in Qatar that could see Alonso return to a Formula 1 podium for the first time since 2014 following the Alpine’s great performance.
