Max Verstappen will start the 2023 Sao Paulo Grand Prix on pole position - his 11th of the season.
The Red Bull driver perfectly timed his Q3 lap on Friday before the storm swept across Interlagos and forced an early abandonment of the session.
He is joined on the front-row by Charles Leclerc, with an all-Aston Martin row two, headed by Lance Stroll.
Lewis Hamilton is fifth with George Russell one of three drivers to pick up a two-place grid penalty for ignoring the race director's instructions to keep to the far left of the pit-exit during qualifying.
Alpine duo Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly were also hit with a similar penalty for the same offence.
NOTE: The grid remains provisional until formally confirmed by the FIA on Sunday.
