Hamilton, who trails Rosberg by 43 points in the title race, revived his form of the past with a stunning showing in both Q2 and Q3. He ended up with a best lap in one minute and 22 seconds, 0.280 seconds ahead of Rosberg’s fastest lap on a day when teenager Max Verstappen demonstrated as to why he was promoted by Red Bull from Toro Rosso.

The 18-year-old was second fastest and his speed inspired his Red Bull teammate Daniel Ricciardo, who responded by qualifying third ahead of him.
