Now three-time World Champion Max Verstappen starts the Qatar Grand Prix from pole after dominating Friday's qualifying session.
Sprint winner Oscar Piastri is down in sixth after track limit violations, with Verstappen's main threat coming from Mercedes duo George Russell and Lewis Hamilton.
Tyre issues have plagued the weekend, though the discrepancy between compounds provided an electric spectacle in the 19-lap Sprint.

During the Qatar Grand Prix, teams will have to keep their cool. The race will be held in tropical conditions at around 33 degrees.
Whilst temperatures in the day soar to around 38 degrees - a value measured in the shade - the track surface easily reaches over 10 degrees hotter.
But the sun sets in Doha well before racing gets underway allowing for the temperature drop. A northeasterly wind would help cool temperatures quicker at the cost of more air humidity.
