The British Lando Norris (McLaren) has signed the pole in the Grand Prix of Russia, which the Spanish Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) will face from the front row with the second best time in Q3. The Spaniard led the last moments of the final round, but Norris snatched the first place from him by beating his time (1: 41.993).

The British Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who had problems in the pit entrance to change to dry tires, was relegated to fourth place and Fernando Alonso will start from sixth position in the race this Sunday.
