Lewis Hamilton struggled but still managed to pip his teammate for the pole

Lewis Hamilton scored yet another pole position by slightly edging out his teammate Valtteri Bottas who topped the timesheets through practice, Q1 and Q2 at the very first F1 race at Portimao for the Portuguese GP.  Red Bull’s Max Verstappen managed P3 who will be joined by Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc at P4 in the second row, who arguably drove the lap of the session to propel the struggling scarlet car. Sergio Perez in the Racing Point managed P5 who handily out-qualified his teammate Lance Stroll who just managed P12. Alex Albon managed a solid P6 in the Red Bull while the McLaren pair of Carlos Sainz Jr and Lando Norris managed P7 and P8 respectively.

George Russell in the Williams put in a surprise performance that elevated him to P14 ahead of Sebastian Vettel’s Ferrari who continued to struggle and managed just P15. Kimi Raikkonen again found himself behind his former teammate Vettel at P16 in the Alfa Romeo followed by his teammate Antonio Giovinazzi in P17. 

The outgoing Haas pair of Grosjean and Magnussen managed P18 and P19 respectively, while Nicholas Latifi was the last car on the grid at P20.
