Belgian Grand Prix: Carlos Sainz on pole after Max Verstappen penalty

Max Verstappen put in a stunning performance in Belgian Grand Prix qualifying – but Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz will start the race from pole position. Verstappen was a remarkable 0.632 seconds clear of the field but a grid penalty for using too many engine parts means he starts towards the back. Sainz won a battle with Red Bull’s Sergio Perez to take pole by 0.165secs. Alpine’s Fernando Alonso will start third ahead of Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and George Russell. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Alpine’s Esteban Ocon qualified fourth and fifth but both also have engine penalties, along with four further drivers. Verstappen looks set to start 15th, one place ahead of Leclerc. Sliced Bread grills a food scientist and the BBC’s Good Food Magazine to find out.
