Here is the provisional starting grid for Sunday's United States Grand Prix, including confirmed penalties.

Max Verstappen starts on pole position for Red Bull, with Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton lining up alongside him.

Sergio Perez starts from third in the other Red Bull, with Ferrari pair Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in fourth and fifth.

Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas had qualified in fourth, but still start ninth as a result of a five-place grid penalty. This is because he had a new Internal Combustion Engine fitted to his car on Friday.

Other penalties are for Sebastian Vettel, with the Aston Martin driver lining up in 18th after a complete Mercedes power unit change. Alpine's Fernando Alonso will start from 19th, after his team also opted for a power unit change, while Williams' George Russell starts 20th, with a new Mercedes power unit fitted to his car.

This starting grid will be updated until the FIA confirm the final starting grid ahead of the Grand Prix.
