Max Verstappen tried in the dying seconds of qualifying but complained of a loss of power and was told to box on his final fast lap. His Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez will start fifth on Sunday.
Elsewhere, George Russell secured a second-row start, securing the green from fourth on the grid. His Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton starts sixth, alongside Perez.
With Ferrari struggling with tire wear, Sunday’s race could be anything but simple in Spain.
Here’s how they’ll line up:

Calendar Formula 1 2022
There are 22 events on the F1 calendar for 2022, one race short of the mark for the longest F1 calendar.
The season kicked off in Bahrain on March 20 and will end with the now usual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, albeit a little earlier than usual, in November. It will be the earliest end to the Formula 1 season since it ended on November 4, 2013.
The Canadian and Japanese Grands Prix, which were both canceled in 2021 amid the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic, are back on the F1 2022 slate.
The calendar also contains the maiden voyage of the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the United States GP taking place in October.
The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for September 25, was canceled following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
