Max Verstappen will start the US Grand Prix from the third row of the grid on Sunday, qualifying sixth after his fastest lap was deleted for a track limits violation.
The Dutchman will start behind both Ferraris and both Mercedes, as well as the McLaren of Lando Norris – who will start second on the grid, alongside Charles Leclerc.
Fernando Alonso was eliminated in Q1 for the first time this season, qualifying 17th, two places ahead of his team-mate Lance Stroll.
Q2 was a struggle for teams with 'Alfa' (or a variant of it) in their names, with the Alfa Romeos of Zhou Guanyu and Valtteri Bottas joining the AlphaTauris of Yuki Tsunoda and Daniel Ricciardo in being knocked out before the final shootout.

How does F1 Qualifying work?
The 60-minute qualifying session is split into three finite windows which provides a dramatic prelude to Sunday's big race.
The bottom five drivers are eliminated at the end of Q1, with a further five eliminated after Q2.
Then Q3 gives us a shootout between the remaining 10 drivers in the battle for positions at the front of the grid.
