Charles Leclerc was thrilled to claim pole position for the Miami Grand Prix following his mistake last time out at Imola.
The Monegasque set a time of 1:28.796 to take P1 on the grid at the Miami International Autodrome, two tenths of a second ahead of Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz in P2.
Leclerc admits that he took added motivation from the enthusiasm of the crowd.
"The fans are crazy," Leclerc told Sky Sports F1 after the session.
"It's incredible to be here in the US and to see how much the sport has grown over the past few years, and to see so many people in the grandstands definitely motivated [me].
"There are also a lot of Ferrari fans, so it's amazing."
Leclerc was particularly pleased to bounce back following his error in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, which saw him drop points.
"The last weekend hasn't been great for me," he explained.
"I did a mistake in the race but today went well, so we're starting on pole and we need to finish the job tomorrow."
