Turkish Grand Prix qualifying result: Lance Stroll takes pole in unexpected rain-delayed session


Lance Stroll will start Sunday’s Turkish Grand Prix from pole position following one of the biggest upsets in recent Formula One memory.

Stroll and his Racing Point team excelled in the wet conditions at the Istanbul Park circuit to see off Red Bull’s Max Verstappen by two tenths of a second.

Lewis Hamilton will start his bid to become a seven-time world champion from sixth on the grid. Hamilton was an eye-watering 4.7 seconds slower than Stroll.

Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas, the only driver still mathematically in the title race, finished ninth.

If the order remains that way here on Sunday, Hamilton will match Michael Schumacher’s championship haul.
