Bottas his team mate at Mercedes Lewis Hamilton could not get the best out of his car and had to settle for 4th. Because he had to replace the Mercedes W09 gearbox yesterday and will be given a 5 places grid penalty and will start from P9.
Max Verstappen had a rare spin during Q1 and will start from P15. Hamilton and Verstappen starting from behind will give us spectators a good show. Hopefully we will wittiness a lot of overtaking.
