    20 minutes to the start

    - That's just going well!

    George Russell almost loses control of his Williams on the way to the grid.

    a few seconds ago

    Verstappen therefore starts on different tires than on which he drove his best time in Q2, because paint got on the weighbridge.

    Parts of the braking system have also been replaced.

    None of this affects his starting position.
