Mercedes' Nico Rosberg came on top in an incident-packed qualifying session at Baku, with Sergio Perez qualifying second on the grid.
Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel set identical lap times and ended third and fourth, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen.
But the biggest story of the session was Lewis Hamilton who crashed out in Q3, after struggling under braking. The triple-world champion will start down in 10th place on a circuit which is unlikely to offer many overtaking opportunities.
