Charles Leclerc overcame all competition with a sovereign performance in pre-qualifying qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa Francorchamps and will start tomorrow's race from the best starting position. He was out for seven tenths of a second faster than his team-mate Sebastian Vettl and third would be Lewis Hamilton [Mercedes].

Monachan was a complete qualifier for himself, eventually coming to the third pole position this season with no major problems. This time Sebastian Vettel overtook Lewis Hamilton by a few thousandths of a second, both behind Leclerc by more than seven dozen.

The Mercedes team had an extremely challenging task ahead of qualifying, as they had to repair Lewis Hamilton's badly damaged race car, which collided just before the end of the third free training session. The Brackley team eventually succeeded, and Hamilton was able to qualify for the third place finish.

Valtteri Bottas [Mercedes] is in the top three, and Max Verstappen will start tomorrow's race from the fifth start.

Both Renault racers Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkennberg are behind the Dutch, but they are fined five starting points due to the replacement of the powertrain.

Kimi Raikkonen [Alfa Romeo] will start from the third row and Sergio Perez [Racing Point] from the seventh place.

Immediately after qualifying, new problems hit the Williams team, as Robert Kubica parked his car in a white smoke cloud due to a failure of a Mercedes drive unit before entering the bus stop, and the qualifications were interrupted by a red flag.
