For the fifth time in 2023, Formula 1 is preparing for a Sprint, but first comes the Sprint Shootout ahead of the United States Grand Prix event.
The last Sprint was at the last Grand Prix when Oscar Piastri won from pole for his first 'F1 win' as teams prepare for the first-ever Sprint at the Circuit of the Americas.
The format for the Sprint Shootout is largely the same as normal Grand Prix qualifying, except the segment times for SQ1, SQ2 and SQ3 are reduced with only eight minutes available in the final part as opposed to the normal 12.
Qualifying for the Grand Prix itself looked close with Charles Leclerc edging out Lando Norris and Lewis Hamilton for pole position with World Champion Max Verstappen only sixth after exceeding track limits on his final attempt.
The time, which would have been good enough for pole by 0.005s was deleted.
Will the Sprint Shootout be as close as Grand Prix qualifying? It's nearly time to find out!
