Portuguese Grand Prix
The 2021 F1 season is up and running with two races completed and the third race around the corner. The Portuguese Grand Prix is scheduled to begin on Sunday, May 2, at the Algarve International Circuit. Here are the Portuguese Grand Prix live stream details for USA, Canada, and UK fans.
In an enthralling qualifying session, Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas grabbed the Portuguese Grand Prix pole position ahead of teammate and reigning Driver's Lewis Hamilton by just 0.007s. Red Bull's Max Verstappen qualified third in what was a disappointing session for him as he missed out on pole having exceeded track limits on his first Q3 lap. As a result, his first lap time was deleted.
Meanwhile, his teammate Sergio Perez clocked the fourth-fastest time in the other Red Bull. Both Mercedes and Red Bull will start Sunday's main race on the medium compound tyre having set their fastest Q2 lap on that tyre. The only other driver in the top 10 to start the race on that compound is Ferrari's Charles Leclerc who qualified in a disappointing eighth place on the grid.
Meanwhile, his teammate Carlos Sainz showed drastic improvements from his outings in Bahrain and Imola as he clocked the fifth-fastest time, ahead of Alpine's Esteban Ocon in sixth. McLaren's Lando Norris was unable to repeat his heroics of Imola as he could only manage seventh fastest. The top 10 were rounded up by AlphaTauri's Pierre Gasly in ninth and Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel in tenth.
