Hamilton put the performance down to a team effort, thanking Bottas for his efforts to improve the package.

“It was an amazing qualifying lap and it has been amazing teamwork from everyone, Valtteri included, trying to push the car forward.

“The guys at the factory have left no stone unturned. 

“The soft tyre is worth something like five metres into turn one. It was surprising to see everyone in the top 10 on the softs apart from us.”
