Something special was needed to win the pole for the French GP...and Red Bull Honda's Max Verstappen did not disappoint. His 1m 29.9 Q3 spectacular eclipsed the best laps of the two Mercedes drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, and leaves him nicely poised for his third win of the F1 season (and ready to receive at least some compensation for the one that got away in Baku). How do Red Bull and Mercedes face-up in race trim? And what of Ferrari and the other major contenders? Peter Windsor takes up the story.
With thanks to AMG Mercedes, Red Bull, Alpha Tauri, Alpine F1 and Haas.
