Charles Leclerc will be first on the starting grid for the 2023 Belgian Grand Prix, after Max Verstappen, who claimed pole position in qualifying, but was handed a five-place grid penalty at Spa. 

Verstappen blew away the opposition in qualifying, and was 0.800s ahead of Leclerc’s Ferrari, but will start in sixth after replacing the gearbox on his Red Bull

The sister Red Bull of Sergio Perez has therefore been moved to second on the grid, just ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes who starts third.
