Charles Leclerc had rounded off the top three for Ferrari after also putting in a superb lap, but the Monegasque star has now been demoted three places to sixth for holding up McLaren's Lando Norris during the shootout.
That instead moves up Esteban Ocon into third for Alpine who has enjoyed his best qualifying performance of the season so far.
Lewis Hamilton starts from sixth on the grid in the new upgraded version of his Mercedes which has so far this weekend not shown obvious signs of trimming the gap to the rapid Red Bulls.
