F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix: Charles Leclerc on Las Vegas pole as Lewis Hamilton struggles

Leclerc was quicker by just 0.044 seconds than team-mate Carlos Sainz, who has a 10-place grid penalty and will start 12th. In a frantic final few seconds of the session, Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso plummeted from being fourth after the first runs to 10th. Both will move up a place as a result of Sainz’s penalty. “For first [race] in Las Vegas, it is an incredible event and to be starting from pole is great. Sainz’s grid penalty is for using too many engine parts – and that is a consequence of an unfortunate incident early in the first session.
