Max Verstappen has taken pole for the Japanese Grand Prix ahead of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz.

The Red Bull driver was 0.010s quicker on his best lap, showing strong pace in the middle sector compared to Leclerc.

Verstappen is under investigation from the stewards for an earlier incident during Q3 with Lando Norris, when both drivers were on their out laps.

The Red Bull driver appeared to light up his rear tyres, causing his car to go sideways before collecting it without spinning. The move caused Norris to take avoiding action however, forcing him half off the track onto the grass.

Lewis Hamilton starts outside of the top five along with George Russell, while Sebastian Vettel will start from ninth in his final qualifying around Suzuka.
