Vettel snatches pole from Verstappen in Mexico

Ferrari ace Sebastian Vettel recorded a sensational flying lap in Qualifying Q3 on Saturday night to claim pole position for Sunday’s Grand Prix.

During the first session of Q3, a brilliant lap from Max Verstappen looked to have been enough for a maiden F1 career pole but the German turned in an equally impressive effort as the clock expired, edging the Red Bull driver out by less than 0.1s.

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton settled for third ahead of Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. But the Qualifying results will have to be decided in the stewards room, however, with Verstappen under investigation for impeding Bottas at the start of Q3.
