Red Bull looked set to shake up the order with some cracking pace in testing and they delivered on that promise in first qualifying session of the year, as Max Verstappen took a sensational pole position, thumping world champion Lewis Hamilton by a staggering 0.388s.

Please note that I am requesting Forms no later than 22:00 Pacific Time this year. This should help me rest up for the races. Thank you! ~Michael

The Prediction Form is now available, based on the grid available at this time and is due by 22:00 Pacific Time Saturday.
