Lando Norris will start on pole position for the Sao Paulo Grand Prix Sprint race - his first P1 start since the 2021 Russian GP.
After being frustrated at missing out on Grand Prix pole in qualifying after rain and a yellow flag from team-mate Oscar Piastri, Norris stormed to the fastest time in the Sprint Shootout, edging out Max Verstappen by less than a tenth.
The McLaren driver lost time during Sector 1 on his sole lap in SQ3, but made up for it in the second and third segments of the lap to secure P1 on the grid - after Piastri did so during the recent Qatar Sprint.
Sergio Perez was third with George Russell ahead of Lewis Hamilton in fifth.
Norris has been summoned to the stewards for exceeding the maximum delta time between the Safety Car lines, with Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso also among those needing a trip to the stewards following their SQ1 accident.
NOTE: The starting grid remains provisional until formally confirmed by the FIA.
