George Russell will start from pole position at the Brazilian Grand Prix after winning Saturday's Sprint race for the first time in his F1 career.

The Briton surged ahead of the competition to take victory, bouncing back from a spin off the track during Friday's qualifying session.

Carlos Sainz claimed second, but a five-place grid penalty for taking a new Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) has dropped the Ferrari driver down to P7.

This promotes Russell's teammate Lewis Hamilton up to P2, marking the first Mercedes front row of the 2022 Formula 1 season.

The Red Bull duo of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez sit third and fourth, while Charles Leclerc completes the top five.

Yuki Tsunoda will now start the race from the pitlane after AlphaTauri took the car out of parc ferme to change components.

The starting grid below is provisional until confirmed by F1's governing body, the FIA.
