Charles Leclerc will start the Spanish GP from Pole Position, following an impressive lap in the dying moments of Q3.

The Monegasque has been exemplary in qualifying this season, starting every race in 2022 from the front row of the grid. 

Max Verstappen will start directly behind Leclerc, after being denied the opportunity to improve as a result of a DRS issue. 

Sainz will be disappointed with P3, finishing four tenths behind his teammate on home soil, even with Leclerc's mistake. 

Russell's P4 gives Mercedes their best qualifying of the season, as the Silver Arrows take a step away from the midfield and towards the front runners. 

Haas wwere one of the highlights from qualifying, with Magnussen and Schumacher setting times good enough for P8 and P10 respectively. Despite not bringing significant upgrades, Haas are in a better position for Sunday's race than most of their rivals.

Daniel Ricciardo will be pleased to have out-qualified Norris for the first time this year, with the Briton's best Q2 effort being removed for exceeding track limits. 

McLaren's pace was still quite tame given the raft of upgrades they brought for the Spanish GP weekend, but their rapid progression between Bahrain and Imola suggests they can still find improvements in their updated package. 

Speaking of upgrades, Aston Martin had an appalling qualifying session, as both Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll were eliminated in Q1 despite the radical changes made to the AMR22. 

Whilst it was expected that Aston Martin's upgrades would take some time to be optimised, the team has regressed from their promising form in Imola and Miami. 

Alpine were similarly disappointing, showing a general lack of pace in qualifying, with Ocon and Alonso setting slower times than in FP2. 

Still, the points are handed out tomorrow, where everything will be to play for.
