Max Verstappen claims pole position in US Grand Prix

In an enthralling session, Red Bull representative Max Verstappen has claimed the pole position in the qualifying race for the US Grand Prix. He edged out his arch-rival and Mercedes representative Lewis Hamilton by 0.209 seconds as the rivalry goes back-and-forth. Red Bull had more success as Sergio Perez clinched the third spot. Marcedes’ Valteri Bottas finished fourth but will begin from the ninth position due to a grid penalty.

In Q3, my first lap wasn't amazing but in the final lap it starting spitting, like a little drizzle in the last sector especially, so not sure if I was going to hang onto my lap time but it was enough. P1 and P3 for the team was a strong performance.

I gave it everything. It was a bit of a struggle though qualifying. From first practice onwards, we fell back a little bit, and those guys were incredibly quick in qualifying. I was happy with my last lap. That was pretty much as much as we had.

We were really close on that final lap. We did a great job as a team. Unfortunately, my final attempt was not as good throughout the lap. I improved through the lap but I wasn't able to keep it. There were spots of rain and I lost a bit of grip in two corners and I could just see my delta going off.
