The Dutchman was first in almost all the sessions of the weekend, until that insane Q3 put Checo in front in the first attempt, and then Stroll to certify a big surprise on the grid of the Turkish Grand Prix. The 'Pink Mercedes', a cloned W10 car with which Hamilton won the sixth title, surpassed the original in the grim conditions of the qualifying session.
Lewis will start sixth and Valtteri Bottas ninth.

In return, the two Alfa Romeos passed, with Giovinazzi in fifth place, and the two Racing Points, with Stroll as fourth, and the two Renault.
