Verstappen accepts responsibility for Vettel collision

Momentum shift? Red Bull and Ferrari are prising open the Mercedes grip

And Ricciardo made full use of his extra grip, making sensational overtakes on Lewis Hamilton, Vettel and race leader Valtteri Bottas to move to the front, after Verstappen gave up fourth place to the Australian in a scrape with the defending champion. "Overall, it was a disappointing qualifying session and we need to go away and carefully study what has had such a negative effect on our competitiveness today".

After dominating the Bahrain GP last weekend, Ferrari turned up yet again as they outperformed their rivals in Mercedes as they locked out the front row yet again as Vettel's teammate was second fastest after him. "On paper, this track is easier for overtaking than Bahrain, so hopefully tomorrow we can make up for what we lost today", he said.

When asked whether Verstappen should be given more benefit of the doubt because if his age, Vettel said: "He's not young anymore".

Verstappen had changed onto fresh soft tyres before attempting to overtake Vettel's Ferrari for third place at the hairpin on lap 43 but locked up, ramming into the German's vehicle. "Somehow they've found a turbo button on the straight because they are really quick and still in the corners they are reasonably quick".

"The auto was really incredible, it just kept getting better". Now comes China. Another track, but Ferrari still looks dominant. But I think that the forecast is for quite some different temperatures, some 20º C hotter track temperature. We saw it in Melbourne as well, we seemed to suffer more when the wind picked up compared to the other cars.

For Hamilton, pictured, already 17 points behind Vettel, he will line up only fourth following a disappointing day in the gloom of Shanghai.

After being comprehensively outqualified by Ferrari at the Chinese Grand Prix on Saturday, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is confident his team will be closer in the race.

Hamilton is being hopeful.

The third row will be made up of the two Red Bull cars, showing the dominance over the last several seasons of Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull.

But the Briton, like Vettel a four-times champion, has won in Shanghai an unprecedented five times and is determined to claw back at least some of that deficit on Sunday. However, he might still be viewed as a favourite on Sunday despite missing pole position.

Max Verstappen will start from the No. 5 spot and teammate Daniel Ricciardo in the sixth position. "We definitely were not doing that for the cameras", said a clearly relieved Ricciardo.
