The Dutchman edged out Fernando Alonso with the final lap of the qualifying session, while Charles Leclerc has been demoted to sixth on the grid despite posted the third-fastest time, after he was deemed to have impeded McLaren’s Lando Norris in the tunnel.
Lewis Hamilton will begin the race in fifth, while Sergio Perez has it all to do on a track notoriously difficult for overtaking, as he starts last after crashing out in qualifying.
