Hungary pole for Verstappen
Red Bull's Max Verstappen has taken his first career pole for Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix to back up victory in Germany.
The Dutchman clocked 1:14.572 for his fastest lap in the third qualifying session, beating Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas by 0.018 seconds, with Lewis Hamilton third.
Ferrari's Charles Leclerc will be alongside the five-time Formula 1 champion on the second row, with Sebastian Vettel fifth and Pierre Gasly sixth.
Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz Jr, Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen complete the top 10 at the Hungaroring.
Verstappen claimed a maiden pole during his fifth season and, not surprisingly, the 21-year-old was thrilled with his display and to have ticked another box in the high-octane sport.
"It's incredible," he said. "This one was still missing, the car felt good all weekend, but you know it is going to be difficult in qualifying. But we managed to do it."
The former Toro Rosso man currently sits third in the World Championship standings - 22 points behind Bottas and 63 adrift of Hamilton.
