George Russell will start from top spot after winning the sprint race for the Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix. Here's how and when you can watch the race.

F1 Brazilian Grand Prix – Start time, starting grid, how to watch, & more

The Mercedes driver took his maiden win in F1, albeit not an official victory due to the sprint format, as he overthrew Max Verstappen and shock polesitter Kevin Magnussen. 

It means Russell will start the Brazilian GP from first position, while sprint race runner-up Carlos Sainz will drop from second to seventh due to a grid penalty for a Ferrari engine change.

Sainz’s penalty promotes Lewis Hamilton up to second to form a Mercedes front-row lockout, with two-time F1 world champion Verstappen in third and Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez in fourth.

Charles Leclerc will start the grand prix in fifth, with McLaren’s Lando Norris splitting the Ferraris, and Magnussen taking eighth with the final points place in the sprint.

But it was a nightmare sprint for Alpine, as Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso clashed twice on the opening lap, both picking up damage which eventually pushed them down the order.

Alonso was given a five-second penalty for the clash which drops him down to 18th and directly behind team-mate Ocon on the grid for the grand prix.

It was also a hairy sprint race for Aston Martin, as Lance Stroll was given a 10-second penalty for a dangerous move on team-mate Sebastian Vettel, which relegated the Canadian driver down to 16th place.
