How to watch the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix: Valtteri Bottas nabbed pole position ahead of Lewis Hamilton, as the two Silver Arrows conducted their own pole shootout. Nico Hulkenberg sent in a sensational lap to be third on the grid, cementing his status as super sub (which must leave Lance Stroll smarting somewhat). Max Verstappen ended up in fourth, but could end up with an advantage in the race as he’ll be starting on the ‘Hard’ compound. Daniel Ricciardo continued Renault’s good form with sixth position in the race. Hopefully this race will be more eventful than the majority of last weekend’s race, but unless something happens, it’ll be Bottas and Hamilton duking it out for yet another win.
