Ferrari's Charles Leclerc claimed his fourth pole position of the season during qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix, beating his team-mate Carlos Sainz and both Red Bulls to claim top spot.
Despite not showing too much pace during the three practice sessions this weekend, and looking as though he might be in a battle with Williams' Alex Albon and McLarens, Leclerc once again showed off his brilliant one-lap pace to take top spot with Sainz completing the Ferrari front row lockout.
However, an indifferent qualifying session which saw some uncharacteristic mistakes by the young Brit, coupled with a late spin from Fernando Alonso which ruined his final lap, saw Norris crash out in Q1.
His team-mate Oscar Piastri did manage to make it into the final part of qualifying, but couldn't challenge the Ferraris or Red Bulls, and qualified down in seventh.
This presented a great chance for others, however, and Daniel Ricciardo posted the fourth quickest time in Q2, and put his AlphaTauri car into a great position to pick up some points in tomorrow's race, by qualifying all the way up in fourth.
Valtteri Bottas showed again why Alfa Romeo may be hot on the heels of Williams for seventh place in the constructors' championship, as both he and team-mate Zhou Guanyu made it through to Q3.
They're not the only drivers who could be getting a penalty.
Hamilton is under investigation for failing to slow down under yellow flag conditions following Alonso's spin in Q1, whilst Russell, Zhou and Norris are all under investigation for failing to complete a lap under the steward's enforced delta time.
