Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton admits he hadn’t been feeling well in the week leading up to the Qatar Grand Prix after beating championship leader Max Verstappen to pole position by 0.455s in the desert. Hamilton currently trails Verstappen by 14 points heading into the final three races of the season.

“I was here until midnight last night working with the engineers, who also always work so late, they’re such hard workers, and found a lot of areas which I could improve.

“Made a lot of changes for P3 and it seemed to work. Then of course you’ve got to carry that through to qualifying, but I’m so grateful for the timings they put us out on track, we didn’t have any traffic.

“Then that last lap was beautiful. It was a really sweet lap.”

Hamilton adds: “I had a bit of a stomach ache from Wednesday but felt fantastic today. I slept well last night so that makes a big difference.”
