Lewis Hamilton on the Circuit of The Americas during a very exciting qualifying polepositie for the GP of the United States conquered. The belgian Stoffel Vandoorne drove the slowest time.

The qualification for the GP of the United States went on a dry track and would also then be finished. Not to worry rain so, Max Verstappen, however, other concerns on his mind. The Dutchman drove the sixth time but had his Red Bull with a technical problem on the side.

Verstappen his suspension was right at the back is broken, precisely by the new kerbstones to drive, the kerbstones that Verstappen in his own words would not stop. The Dutchman got frustrated out of the car and disappeared from the garage of Red Bull.

Also for the belgian Stoffel Vandoorne was the qualification, not good. Vandoorne got no further than the slowest time, although that does not mean that he is the last in the race will have to start over. Both Toro Rosso pilots were, after all, a new Honda engine which makes them as allerlaatsten in the race to begin.

During Q2, we received no surprises. As expected, Max Verstappen does not participate, Kimi were times drove the fastest time on the ultrasoft band, for team-mate Sebastian Vettel and Hamilton, and Bottas in the Mercedes. It was also especially look forward to Q3 in which the polepositie would be a battle.

In Q3 we saw during the first run Lewis Hamilton, the provisional fastest time drop. The Brit was just 88 thousandths (!) faster than Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari. Hamilton and Vettel so well-matched, the allerbeslissende second run still had to follow. Vettel, however, would after be any a gridpenalty of three places.

During a great excitement slot, we saw, ultimately, Lewis Hamilton the polepositie conquer. The Brit was just 61 thousandths (!) faster than Sebastian Vettel in the Ferrari and 70 thousandths (!) then Kimi were times in the Ferrari. Vettel will be gridpenalty, however, is only the fifth to start the race.
