For the 100th time, a Red Bull will lead a Formula 1 Grand Prix to green as Max Verstappen secured pole for the Chinese Grand Prix.

A blistering lap banked a 37th career pole for the world champion as he became the first driver in the 21st century to start the first five races of the year from pole - Mika Hakkinen in 1999 was the last, and broke his own record of five straight poles, a run stretching back to Abu Dhabi last season.

He joined by Sergio Perez on the front-row, but the results are provisional after Aston Martin launched a protest.

There has since been one change to the official starting grid for the race, which is available to view here.
