The Mexican secured the second pole position of his career in Jeddah, having clinched his first at the same place last year. Perez was 0.155 seconds faster than Monegasque Charles Leclerc in the Ferrari on Saturday. World champion Max Verstappen had to stop qualifying prematurely due to a technical defect.

The Dutchman’s Red Bull suddenly lost drive in the second qualifying session and couldn’t be revived quickly enough in the pits. The Dutchman, who set the fastest time in each of the three training sessions in Jeddah, will likely start the race on Sunday (6 p.m./live ORF 1 and Sky) from 15th place.
