Ferrari's Charles Leclerc will start the Miami Grand Prix from pole position, having pipped teammate Carlos Sainz to top spot in the final moments of the Q3 session.

Their starting positions mark the Scuderia's first front-row lockout since the 2019 Mexican Grand Prix, as the team look to maintain a lead in both championship battles.

Red Bull occupy the second row, with Max Verstappen in third place and Sergio Perez in fourth. Verstappen had been on provisional pole following his first qualifying run in Q3, but made an error on his second lap that prevented him from improving.

Esteban Ocon will start the race from the very back of the grid, having been given permission to do so by the stewards. The Alpine driver crashed in third practice on Saturday morning, picking up a cracked chassis. He wasn't able to take part in qualifying.

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