Max Verstappen was the class of the field in the Sprint Shootout and will start from first place on the grid for the 2023 US GP Sprint Race


Max Verstappen will be first on the starting grid for the 2023 United States Grand Prix Sprint Race after a sensational lap to claim pole position in the Sprint Shootout, just ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes.

Less than a tenth of a second separated the top three on the grid with Lando Norris fourth on the grid in the McLaren, just ahead of his teammate Oscar Piastri who starts fifth.

Sergio Perez in the second Red Bull will start the Sprint Race from seventh on the grid, and he is alongside George Russell‘s Mercedes who starts eighth. Alex Albon in the Williams and Pierre Gasly of Alpine round out the top 10.
