Japanese Grand Prix: Starting grid with penalties applied

A Noah's Ark grid for the Japanese Grand Prix sees Ferrari at the head of a two-by-two line-up across the first four rows, with Sebastian Vettel on pole ahead of Charles Leclerc.

The Monegasque had outqualified Vettel in nine successive races prior to Suzuka, but Vettel turned the tables, ending Leclerc's run of four successive poles, but maintaining Ferrari's flawless qualifying form since the summer break.

Valtteri Bottas ousted Lewis Hamilton in an all-Mercedes second row, with the third row full of the Red Bull drivers, Max Verstappen ahead of Alexander Albon after both set identical lap times in Q3.

Williams have confirmed Kubica needs a new chassis, triggering a pit-lane start, while Haas have changed the gearbox on Magnussen's car.
