The three-time world champion qualified down in fourth behind pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel and his Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in Saturday’s qualifying session, with his own Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas lining up third.

“I just wasn’t quick enough today,” said Hamilton.

“I think we have to go back to the drawing board and try and figure out why. Tomorrow it’s still all to play for. I’m still up there in the mix.”

It was Ferrari’s first front row lock out since 2008 and ended champions Mercedes run of 18 pole positions.
