The Dutch speedster clinched pole. Want the full starting lineup for Jeddah’s race? It’s coming right up.

So, Friday in Saudi was all about Verstappen. The Red Bull ace left everyone in the dust, beating the next best by a solid three-tenths. He’s nabbed pole, no surprises there. The competition? They were neck and neck. But not Max.

Right behind him, Charles Leclerc in his Ferrari snagged second. Sergio Perez, Max’s wingman, is eyeing something big from third. Remember, he won here last time.

Now, let’s chat about Oliver Bearman. The kid’s a wildcard. Stepping in for Carlos Sainz, who’s out with an appendix issue, Bearman had big shoes to fill. With just one practice under his belt, he nearly made it to Q3. Missed it by a whisker, though. He’s starting 11th. Keep an eye on him.
