Bottas to start US Grand Prix from pole position

Saturday, 02. November 2019 23:01

Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas will start tomorrow's Formula One US Grand Prix from the pole position after winning the qualifying session on Saturday.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel came in second and will start the race from the front row alongside Bottas, while Red Bull's Max Verstappen will start from the third position.

Overall leader Lewis Hamilton took the fifth place in qualifying. If Bottas wins tomorrow's race and Hamilton finishes eighth or better, or ninth with the fastest lap in the race, the British driver will secure his sixth Formula 1 title. In case Bottas does not win the US Grand Prix, Hamilton will win the championship regardless of his finish.
