The leader Rosberg suffered more than expected to find the ‘set up’ of the Mercedes, but ended up with a good second place ahead of Red Bull Max Verstappen and Daniel Riccciardo.

The spaniards complied with the provisions of: Sainz will come out 10th, after ‘in extremis’ to Q3, while Alonso will 11th, with the advantage that you can choose tyres for the output.

Q1: Hamilton, without a rival

Lewis Hamilton fulfilled that which was anticipated with a good 1:19.447, ahead of Kimi Räikkönen and Sebastian Vettel that they saved their best laps of the weekend for the classification, with Daniel Ricciardo between the Ferrari.

Max Verstappen he was the first pilot who dropped a huge 1:18. The Dutch beat Lewis Hamilton, quemarcó his best lap of the weekend despite the fact that we kept them from their purpose, ironically, who else has complained about bent this season: Sebastian Vettel. Despite this, he scored a 1:19.1, which allowed him to pass with comfort, the Q3, on soft tyres, that will fit in the output of this Sunday. The German had a small break unforeseen pit: he needed to urinate.

Q3: Hamilton triumphs for his Tenth of the year

For the first time this season, the superiority of the Mercedes was in question, at least in origin. Lewis Hamilton had no problem to achieve the best time on the first attempt of the shoot-out, with the two Red bulls behind, but Nico Rosberg it was not the fifth.

however, in the second attempt, usual of this Q3, the German brought honour to take a turn that was not perfect, because they erred in the first sector of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, but it has achieved a great 1:18, worked primarily in the area virada sector 2. The two-tenths and half-pulled him Rosberg will dolieron less after that great lap.
