Question about Switching OFF a P-MOSFET and a bypass MOSFET

Hello all,
I am trying charge a set of capacitors (BCAP0360) in a 3s2p configuration. The Buck converter U1 (AP3211) sets the output voltage at 8.1v and a bypass N-MOSFET Q1 (SQP60N06) to charge at a higher current. The P-MOSFET Q2 (PMV160UP) is used to switch OFF Q1 via an Arduino by pulling the Gate to GND.

I am just not sure if i have Q1 connected the correct way act to as a bypass for higher current. The Diode D1 used is MUR160S R5G.
