Shock Brazilian Grand Prix Formula 1 Pole Position winner Kevin Magnussen has promised "maximum attack" in the Sprint race.

Amid wet conditions at Interlagos, Magnussen was the first driver to set a lap time in Q3 and sitting in P1 when George Russell caused a red flag by going off at Turn 4.

During the delay while the Mercedes was recovered, the rain began to fall, meaning that Magnussen's Pole was secured - the first ever for himself and the team in F1 for the sprint race on Saturday.

Speaking after euphoric scenes in the garage, Magnussen promised to deliver his usual attacking style.

Magnussen credits team for Q3 tactics

"I don't know what to say - the team put me out on track at exactly the right moment and we were first out of the pitlane," Magnussen explained.

"I did a decent lap and we are on Pole - it is incredible.

"Thank you to Gene [Haas, team owner] and Guenther [Steiner, Team Principal], and the whole team for this opportunity.

"I got back [in F1] this year after a year out it's just been an amazing journey, so thank you.

"It's incredible, yeah [it will] be maximum attack, so let's go for something funny."
