Starting grid for the United States GP shaken up after qualifying

Max Verstappen has achieved his ninth pole position of the season in Austin and still has a chance to break records. In any case, it means that he can start at the front of the grid at the Circuit of the Americas.

Ferrari benefits from Bottas penalty

Behind Verstappen, the starting grid has been shuffled considerably after qualifying. Valtteri Bottas has been put back five places because of an engine part replacement, while Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and George Russell have to start from the back for something similar.

Ferrari, among others, have benefited from this and at the back, it means drivers such as Latifi, Schumacher and Mazepin are further forward than usual. This can cause a spectacle, especially in the first few laps.
