The third row will be made up of the two Red Bull cars, showing the dominance over the last several seasons of Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull.

"That was just bad", said former F1 champion Nico Rosberg of the incident.

Sebastian Vettel finished the qualifying race with a new lap record of 1 minute and 31.095 seconds.

NCAA changes kickoff rule to include fair catch, touchback inside 25
Following a touchdown and a kickoff, the play clock will start at the 40-second mark in an effort to speed up the game. Receiving teams will be allowed to fair catch any kick inside the 25-yard line and have it result in a touchback.

Verstappen tried to overtake on the inside of the hairpin however, the Red Bull driver didn't leave enough room and caused both cars to spin.

"I could see him struggling on the tyres", Verstappen explained. "To be honest, I was expecting him to come earlier". So that was of course my fault.

'It's easy to say afterwards I should have waited, it probably would have been the best idea but unfortunately it happened'.

Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton will be starting this Sunday's race at third and fourth places, respectively.

And Verstappen admits he must learn from the lesson but doesn't think he needs to be less aggressive in the way he drives. "To have that much of a gap (over Mercedes), it is a surprise". It is very unfortunate those things happening. "I had no pace so was just trying to hold on for whatever I had".

YTD calculations are commonly used by investors and analysts in the assessment of portfolio performance due to their simplicity. The ideal time to sell a stock is usually when it is trading higher than its target price range or during overheated markets.

But you have to give Vettel credit, he just knows when to perform and that's why he's a four-time world champion.

Verstappen said: "I will analyse everything and put that in my knowledge and have a better race [next time]".

"I had no intention of resisting, there was no point in doing so they were too fast. I think it was just a matter of time with the pace he had".

"I didn't see him until very late".

"After three races we have identified some of our problems". I was a bit wide at the apex in case he misjudged his braking and obviously he misjudged more than I thought. He's not young any more. But this can happen when you have done 300 races. "The judgements are very hard to make inside the vehicle".

The IRFU and Ulster Rugby announced yesterday that the players were to depart after conducting a joint-review into their conduct. But he added that he was "truly sorry" his behaviour had fallen "far short of the values" expected of him as an global player.

"He's done enough races so you know, but again, this can happen to you also when you've done 300 races so inside the auto, you know, you mustn't forget that the judgements are very hard to make but you ultimately have to have these things in mind and yeah, make sure you don't crash". It's a shame what happened in the end because we really took the opportunities in the beginning of the race start, during the pit stop.
