  • Lewis Hamilton takes pole position for Bahrain Grand Prix

"I didn't celebrate too much", he said.

Bottas said: "It felt good".

Max Verstappen was third ahead of his Red Bull teammate Alex Albon who recovered from his crash in Friday's practice to go fourth quickest.

"With the pressure a little bit off, it's a bit of a release to go and drive like I just did".

In the top-10 shootout, Hamilton set the bar at 1m27.677s, 0.146s faster than Verstappen, with Bottas a tenth further back.

But while Verstappen would like to be closer to Mercedes, he is aware that there are some issues on the RB16 that can not be addressed until the winter. "It [the track] is quite aggressive on the tyres here".

Australia's Daniel Ricciardo had a solid qualifying, taking sixth place on the grid with a lap of 1:28.417, 1.153 seconds behind Hamilton.

It was his 10th pole this season and third in Bahrain, putting him level with Sebastian Vettel as the most successful qualifier at the Sakhir track.

Ferrari, dominant in Bahrain past year when they locked out the top two spots in every session of practice and qualifying, failed to make it into the top 10 this time.

Former champion Kimi Raikkonen was among the five drivers eliminated from Q1 while Carlos Sainz Jr went out of Q2 after his rear tires blocked and his McLaren stalled on the track.

Max Verstappen has stated Red Bull must "work on the little things" if the team is to take the fight to Mercedes in the Middle East and into next year.

But the British-Thai driver was 0.6secs behind the Dutchman, and less than 0.1secs ahead of Racing Point's Sergio Perez.

In an exciting qualifying session yesterday, Hamilton took his 98th career pole position. On top of that, we're bringing tyres that are a step softer than past year, which open up more opportunities in terms of strategy. "I think they have a very, very good vehicle and perhaps with some more development of their engine I think they would even closer next year".

"It will make the problems we struggle with now worse", he said.

This is the 15th of 17 races in the coronavirus-shortened season, with another race to follow in Bahrain next Sunday before the campaign concludes in Abu Dhabi.
