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

Carlos Sainz will start from pole position after topping qualifying for the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix. Here's how and when you can watch the race.

Ferrari’s Sainz claimed the third F1 pole of his career to take top spot in qualifying at the Circuit of the Americas, beating team-mate Charles Leclerc by 0.065 seconds. 

But Leclerc will take a 10-place grid drop for a new engine and turbo meaning he is set to drop to 12th on the starting grid, with Max Verstappen promoted on to the front row.

Saturday was a tough experience for Red Bull because shortly before the start of qualifying it was announced that co-founder and team owner Dietrich Mateschitz had died aged 78 following a lengthy illness. 

Red Bull F1 team boss Christian Horner led the tributes from the entire paddock, as his squad undertook qualifying as normal despite the sad circumstances. 

Earlier in the day, Red Bull’s F1 cost cap breach saga took a fresh twist with Horner hitting out at cheating suggestions.
