The Ferrari of Carlos Sainz has signed the best qualifying times and will start on pole for the F1 Grand Prix of the United States on Sunday. His teammate Charles Leclerc signed the second chrono but was penalized for his engine change.

Carlos Sainz Jr. (Ferrari) took pole position at the United States Grand Prix, took a career Formula 1 win and was on the grid at the Circuit of the Americas.

The Spaniard overtook his team-mate Charles Leclerc, but the Monégasque, penalized for a change in engine beyond the authorized quota, dropped ten places plus down to 12th place. Du coup, c’est le two-time world champion Max Verstappen (Red Bull), author of three times, qui partira en première ligne juste derrière Sainz.

L’hommage de Verstappen à Mateschitz

Less than an hour before the pole position was decided, Red Bull announced the death of its founder Dietrich Mateschitz, aged 78. “Cela a été une nouvelle très difficile pour tout le monde,” confié Max Ferstappen on the piste. Il a été fundamental pour Red Bull, pour le sport mais aussi pour moi, il a beaucoup fait pour moi, pour ma career et ma vie en générale. C’est une journée très difficile. Il ya une course à disputer tomorrow et on va essayer de le rendre fier. »
