Leclerc to start on pole after Verstappen penalty

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc will start Sunday's Mexican Grand Prix on pole position after Red Bull's Max Verstappen collected a three place penalty for failing to slow for a waved yellow warning flag in qualifying. The drop means the front row will now be a Ferrari lockout, with Sebastian Vettel joining his team mate in what will be the Italian team's sixth successive pole. Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton moves up to third.
