Daniel Ricciardo 'tripping major nut sack' after pole effort

Daniel Ricciardo 'tripping major nut sack' after pole effort

The Dutchman looked on course to become F1's youngest pole sitter after the first runs in Q3 setting another new track record that put him almost 0.2s off the rest of the field, but out of nowhere, Ricciardo found 0.3s on his final run to claim a third career pole position. I knew the pace was in the auto as Max had shown all weekend from start to finish, so I knew it was all about putting a clean lap together at the end. "We had a hard day yesterday and it was a big improvement today so obviously, yesterday we were much, much further back so I wasn't expecting to be up as high as we got but the team did a great job last night in analyzing and moving forward today".

Verstappen, 21, had dominated all weekend at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, but he was beaten in the dying moments by Ricciardo, the Australian claiming his first pole at a track other than Monaco and only the third of his career.

If second place on the starting grid left the Dutch youngster feeling sore, the front row lockout was still Red Bull's first since the U.S. Grand Prix of 2013.

"These guys were just too quick", Hamilton said after the session finished.

"I'm really, really happy with it", said Hamilton.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, the only man that can deny Hamilton the title, starts from fourth and must win if he has any hope of extending the championship to the next race in Brazil.

A father of one of the survivors said a bus with 37 school children and seven teachers had been on a trip to the resort area. State media report that Jordan's King Abdullah II has cancelled a trip to Bahrain to follow the rescue operations.

"I'm holding a lot in, I let a bit out when I heard I got pole". It's been a while since I've had a good weekend in general.

Hamilton said his Mercedes felt like a completely different vehicle than it had done 24 hours previously.

Although Hamilton missed the opportunity to clinch his fifth crown last week, a finish of seventh or higher will be enough in Mexico City even if Vettel wins the race. I had some snaps here and there, but it just didn't come together so I'm quite happy though. "Obviously on all three occasions I wasn't clearly ahead, at best side-by-side, so as I said, maybe next time I try the outside".

"Hopefully we're in a quicker auto all day".

"I said coming to this event, this altitude of race brings the engines closer within the bracket of Mercedes and Ferrari", he said.
