On the crash, Stroll said yesterday: "It was really bad. We had a bad outlap with traffic and there was no temperature in the tyres. There was no grip.
"I thought we were going out and I tried to push to make up some time, but it didn't work out."
Carlos Sainz will begin on pole with George Russell and Charles Leclerc behind him.
