From a precarious position in Q2, Lewis Hamilton took pole position in qualifying for the 2020 F1 Russian Grand Prix. But is he in the best position for tomorrow's race?

Verstappen didn’t have an answer to the Finn, losing 0.6sec a lap on the straights and dropping over ten seconds behind at one stage before keeping the pressure up in the closing laps. He might not have been a real threat for victory, but second place marks Red Bull’s first podium at Sochi.

“The first lap I had a little bit of a battle with Daniel to get back into third and I had a nice off road experience through the bollards so that’s nice,” Verstappen said. “Then from there onwards… on the medium tyre I wasn’t having a great balance like in Q1 and Q2 yesterday where I couldn’t push the entries of the corners and I couldn’t keep up with them so I just tried to not lose too much time.
