OFFICIAL GRID – Who starts where for Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix
One Red Bull first, one Red Bull last, and a Mercedes on the front row. Those were the headlines from qualifying in Melbourne, but since then there’s been a couple of minor tweaks to the starting line-up for Sunday’s race.
While Max Verstappen sits on pole for the first time in Albert Park, team mate Sergio Perez will start from the pit lane after Red Bull opted to modify his car following his off in Q1 yesterday. Alfa Romeo have made the same call with Valtteri Bottas after the Finn qualified 19th, the slowest driver to set a time.
