Verstapped and Hamilton were (unsurprisingly) the big winners. Hamilton has a long uphill battle to catch up to Rosberg after a run of bad luck, but getting pole in Spain is a big first step. Verstappen appears to have validated Red Bull's choice to promote him to the A-team. Williams was already in serious danger of losing third place to Red Bull, and Massa's ratings took a pummeling from the Q1 mistake.
McLaren might have broken a psychological barrier by breaking into Q3, but per Elo it wasn't quite the monumental milestone as claimed by some commentators. It was a positive step forward (+26 points for the team average), but nearby leaders Force India and Toro Rosso averaged a +25 and +8 average, respectively.
Spain is a notoriously difficult track on which to pass, so provided Mercedes can get a good start, this may be a quite interesting race for third.
