Charles Leclerc clinched his maiden 21st Formula 1 race and third pole of the season at the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. He starts behind Ferrari’s Lando Norris in a McLaren and Lewis Hamilton in a Mercedes. Leclerc’s teammate Carlos Sainz comes in fourth place.
Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was five thousandths faster than Leclerc on the final lap, but he exceeded the track limit, which is why the time was cancelled. The Dutchman, who already has his third world title in his pocket, remains sixth on the grid, and Verstappen, who has triumphed in Austin the past two years, is aiming for his 50th win in motorsport’s ‘premier category’.
