Of his 100th career pole, Hamilton said:

“I can’t believe we are at 100 and it’s down to the men and women back at the factory who are continuously raising the bar. The support I have, it’s a dream to work with these guys.

Verstappen lamented a final session that didn’t work out for him.

“It was good. I struggled in Q1 but we sorted out the balance in Q2 which was good. Q3 both laps were pretty decent, the second run was a little worse. It is quite gusty. Nevertheless second for us is very good today. We know they are hard to beat around here. To be that close we can be happy with that.”
