Max Verstappen gave it a go in the closing seconds of qualifying, but complained about losing power and was told to box on his final flying lap. Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez will start in fifth on Sunday.

Elsewhere, George Russell secures a second-row start, getting the green from fourth grid position. Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton starts in sixth, alongside Perez.

With Ferrari having tire wear issues, Sunday’s race could be anything but simple in Spain.

Here’s how they’ll line up:

Formula 1 2022 schedule

There are 22 events on the F1 schedule for 2022, one race shy of tying the mark for longest F1 calendar.

The season started in Bahrain on March 20 and will end with the now-customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, although a bit earlier than usual, in November. This will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since it ended on Nov. 4 in 2013.

Returning to the 2022 F1 slate are the Canadian and Japanese Grand Prix, both of which were canceled in 2021 amid fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. 

The calendar also holds the maiden voyage for the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the United States GP taking place in October.

The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for Sept. 25, was axed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
