Bottas had a luck escape when he lost the back end of the W11 but survived with no major damage for Sundays race .
Valtteri Bottas did take pole with a 1:02.939 .
The surprise of the day came from Mclaren’s Lando Norris who put himself in P4 just 0.687s away from Valtteri.
Ferrari seem to be struggling with a design flaw which sees Charles Leclerc in 7th and Sebastian Vettell in 11th position for tomorrow race .
