McLaren has an important message on the car #keepfightingmichael:

Mercedes starts up and then fails to launch:

Mercedes grabs first pole position in Shanghai

Pole position is a great result for us today and to achieve it in my third race for the team is such a good feeling. Everyone’s been working really hard. It would be great to convert the position in the race tomorrow but it’s going to be a challenge and we’re realistic about how tough the race will be. I’m looking forward to it and will give it my all.
