* Five-place grid penalty for a new ICE component 

George Russell will start Sunday's race from pole position after winning the sprint race for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

Russell overtook Max Verstappen into Turn 4 after a number of laps battling the reigning world champion.

Mercedes showed great pace in the short, 100km sprint race, with Lewis Hamilton recovering from eighth to finish third.

Hamilton will start from second on the grid - moving up one place thanks to Carlos Sainz's five-place grid penalty for a new engine component.

F1 is set for an exciting battle at the front with Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari qualifying inside the top six on the grid.

In terms of the midfield, Alpine duo Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon have a lot of work to do after they collided twice on Saturday.

Yuki Tsunoda was penalised with a pitlane start.
