Vettel not a magician says Verstappen

"They are such w*nkers honestly". Everybody just lining up and they are just f*****g it up.

Later, speaking to Dutch TV, Verstappen claimed drivers should not overtake one another as they gear up for their speedy laps.

To mark the 1,000th race, several drivers have changed their helmet designs. I was actually trying to be nice and not overtake, as that's not what you do in qualifying when you're all trying to prepare for the last run.

"On the track they are free to fight, but as I said at the start of the season, if there's any 50-50 situation where we need to take a decision, the advantage would have been given to Sebastian, simply because Sebastian has got most of the experience with the team", Binotto said.

"Was still a tricky weekend, so I think we are happy with the position but still not satisfied with my driving still".

Tottenham confirm Kane has a 'significant' ankle injury
After the game Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said he was "so happy" for the 26-year-old Brazil winger and his family. Pochettino did not allude as to whether surgery would be needed but did say Spurs have plans in place for Kane's recovery.

So, yeah, definitely we could have fought for third but I mean that's always afterwards. "We were following each other and towards the end of the lap you didn't know whether to try and overtake people, which in that case they are going to defend and it was messy".

"It is how it is, and it will make tomorrow more interesting".

"We're going to work hard tonight to find some tweaks and hopefully come back stronger tomorrow; the vehicle has the pace in it to compete at the front, we just need to find the right set-up".

"Max was in a good position but then Sebastian passed him around the outside, so he's then hung back not to get into Sebastian's dirty air, then the Renaults passed him and he's hung back again and unfortunately the clock ticking down the way it was, he didn't make it to the line in time".

But then Hamilton swept around him with a brilliant move, throwing caution to the wind by going so late on the brakes and attacking the corner with so much speed. By that time he had lost sufficient time that he missed the cut-off and was first to see the chequered flag. In the ultimate game of brinkmanship, in the final moments of Q3 all ten drivers headed out, nearly as one. In Bahrain two weeks ago he spun - for the fourth time in 10 races - while battling Lewis Hamilton.

Verstappen qualified fifth for Sunday's race at the Shanghai International Circuit, with Mercedes locking out the front of the grid as Valtteri Bottas pipped teammate Lewis Hamilton to pole.
