Here are the final results from the critical qualifying session for the Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring, where Mercedes have claimed pole…

Mercedes’ George Russell has claimed his maiden pole position in Formula 1, setting a 1:17.377 right at the very end of the Q3 session.

With Ferrari seemingly set for a front-row lock-out with Carlos Sainz ahead of Charles Leclerc, Russell clocked a surprise lap to pip Sainz by just 0.044 seconds.

It was a disastrous session for Red Bull, with a power issue preventing Max Verstappen from setting a final lap after he made an error during his first run. The championship leader will start the race from 10th on the grid.

The big scalp knocked out in Q2 was Red Bull’s Sergio Perez in 11th, with the Mexican failing to put in a strong lap after some confusion over track limits on his first run in Q2. Initially having his time deleted, his lap was reinstated but he failed to improve enough on his second run after feeling blocked by Haas’ Kevin Magnussen.

Joining Perez on the sidelines were Magnussen, Alfa Romeo’s Zhou Guanyu, Haas’ Mick Schumacher, and Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll.

Eliminated from Q1 were AlphaTauri’s Yuki Tsunoda and Pierre Gasly in 16th and 19th respectively, Williams’ Alex Albon in 17th with Nicholas Latifi in 20th, while Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel was knocked out in 18th and disappointed after his team managed to get his car repaired in time after the four-time World Champion crashed in FP3.
