Kevin Magnussen will lead the field away for the third and final F1 Sprint race of the 2022 season, having stormed to a surprise Pole Position at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace.

As rain hit during the latter stages of Friday's qualifying, Magnussen benefitted from setting a fast lap during the earlier dry conditions and remained unbeaten at the top of the timesheets.

He will be joined on the front row by Max Verstappen, who has good form in the Sprint after winning the two previous events in 2022.

George Russell lines up in third, despite spinning off during Q3 and bringing out the red flags, while Lando Norris sits in fourth.

Carlos Sainz secured fifth, putting him well ahead of teammate Charles Leclerc, who starts from P10 after struggling on Intermediate tyres for his Q3 flying lap.

Eight points are available to the winner of the Sprint, with the second-place finisher scoring seven points and so on down to eighth position.

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