Lewis Hamilton has clinched pole position for the Styrian Grand Prix, finishing 1.2 seconds ahead of the rest of the field.
All three qualifying sessions were held in wet conditions after the session delayed by 46 minutes from its originally designated time.
Hamilton's challenge from Max Verstappen in Q3 evaporated when the Dutchman spun on his final hot lap on the exit of Turn 9.
The Red Bull driver will line up in second place on tomorrow's grid ahead of former Toro Rosso teammate Carlos Sainz, who managed to pull his McLaren into third place on the grid.
Sebastian Vettel was the only Ferrari to make it into Q2, while his teammate Charles Leclerc was only 11th fastest at the end of Q2, meaning he didn't advance into the last stage - continuing the ongoing woes for the Maranello-based squad.

The Briton would also end Q2 in the same position, setting a lap time that was only marginally down on Leclerc's.
Romain Grosjean failed to set a lap time, however he did take to the track early on in Q1, only to run wide onto the gravel at Turn 4 and return to the pits.
The race will get underway at 15:10 local time on Sunday, when it is expected to be completely dry.
