Red Bull's Max Verstappen topped qualifying on Saturday by a big margin but will have to start the race from 15th on the grid due to a penalty for exceeding his allocation of power unit elements.

Verstappen's title rival Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) has also been hit with the same penalty and will be taking the start from 16th place.

However, a Ferrari and a Red Bull will share the front row of the grid, with Carlos Sainz lining up on pole position ahead of Sergio Perez.

Alpine's Fernando Alonso will be starting from third, ahead of the top Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton.
