Following yesterday’s Qualifying session, the provisional grid is: LH, HK, RB, SV, JB, KR, NR, FA, MW, RK, NH, AS, TG, RG, SB, GF, KN, JT, JA, LB.
However, as you can see in the fuel-adjusted grid that I added as a comment to my notes on Qualifying, the McLarens are quite light and therefore will be stopping early.
The air temperature is 31°C, track 43°C, wind 2.2m/s, humidity 56%
The teams clear the grid and LH leads everyone away on the formation lap
The McLarens and KR’s Ferrari are starting on the super-soft (option) tyres; most of the other front runners are on the soft (prime) tyres
