After the drama of Friday's qualifying session to set the grid for Sunday's main race, we are going to do it all again on Saturday for the self-contained sprint day.
The 20 Drivers will take to the track for the Sprint Shootout, which will set the grid for the evening's sprint race – 100km of racing around the Circuit of the Americas.
Mercedes star Lewis Hamilton will be looking to rein in Red Bull driver Sergio Perez in the drivers' standings. The Mexican currently boasts a 30-point lead over the seven-time world champion.
