F1 LIVE: Qualifying results from the Qatar Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton claiming a stunning pole position.

In qualifying for the Qatar Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will go head-to-head once more, with Valtteri Bottas also vying for pole position.

In Doha, Express Sport provides live updates from the first, second, and third quarters.

When it comes to qualifying for the Qatar Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will once again face Valtteri Bottas.

Bottas, who was fastest in FP2 and FP3 on Saturday morning, is aiming to finish first for the third time in a row.

This morning, Bottas was three tenths faster than Red Bull’s Verstappen, but the Dutchman will be eager to pick up the pace in Doha qualifying.

Earlier today, Hamilton was second fastest, while AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly finished fourth at the Losail International Circuit.

With only two races left after this one, in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi, championship leader Verstappen leads Hamilton by 14 points in the standings and is eyeing another race win to all but confirm his status as the 2021 world champion.

But, with Mercedes having the better package so far this weekend, Hamilton will be looking to capitalize with a 102nd pole position, which would set a new record.

Below are live updates from what promises to be an exciting qualifying session for the Qatar Grand Prix.

On a kerb, Gasly’s front wing was damaged, and his tyre was ripped apart.

“All right, let’s go, you guys did a fantastic job.”

Hamilton, the pole-sitter, exclaims, “Woo!”

This is only the second time this season that the Briton has gotten off to a fast start.

Gasly has a puncture on the start-finish straight, which causes havoc for the rest of the field.

No one can catch Hamilton, who is four and a half tenths faster than Verstappen in second.

Hamilton puts in a thrilling lap in sector one, going three tenths faster than any other lap we’ve seen so far.

He goes 1:20.827 and purples all three sectors.

Verstappen’s best Q3 lap was over half a second faster.

Hamilton is the first to take to the track, as he was earlier in the session.

That time, it worked out nicely for him.

Meanwhile, Verstappen is the last driver on the track.

After those first runs, the top ten is as follows:

1) Lewis Hamilton, 2) Max Verstappen, 3) Valtteri Bottas, 4) Pierre Gasly, 5) Fernando Alonso, 6) Carlos Sainz, 7) Lando Norris, 8) Takuma Tsunoda, 9) Esteban Ocon, and 10) Sebastian Vettel

Hamilton, Bottas, and Verstappen all took a flying lap.

Hamilton is a town in Ontario, Canada.
