Good afternoon, we're in Baku, slightly earlier than usual, and it is time for qualifying! I'm @a_buckmaster, and we will be underway shortly!

Who will get pole? Will Mercedes, who are yet to win, get one? Will Vettel get another pole? Or will Ricciardo continue on his form?

Cars are coming out for Q1, but the graphics on the world feed are broken so I can't tell you who's out right now...

Ah, all cars except for the Red Bulls and Sergio Perez are out. Hulkenburg has had to switch gearboxes, and has a 5 place penalty.

Yellow flags in Sector 1, Turn 3, as Grosjean locks up and goes down the escape road.

Grosjean is in another escape road, and reporting gearbox issues. He is out of qualifying, and be last on the track tomorrow. Double waved yellows for Sector 1, with drivers slowing down, compromising some lap times.

We're following the two Red Bulls, and it seems Ricciardo is the faster car... VER: 1:43.607 RIC 1:43.259 - P1

Raikonnen is now setting purple sectors, beating Ricciardo's time Vettel beats RIC's time, but is then beaten by RAI

HAM then goes between RIC and VER, with BOT then going below his team mate

Currently, Q1 is: RAI OCO VET RIC HAM BOT VER MAG HUL SAI SIR LEC GAS PER STR ERI ALO HAR VAN GRO
