2019 Belgian Grand Prix: Updated starting order

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc starts from pole position

The Belgian Grand Prix has been shuffled by a number of engine penalties, with just five drivers starting from their original qualifying positions.

Charles Leclerc will take up his pole position grid slot ahead of Ferrari team-mate Sebastian Vettel, with the two Mercedes' filling the second row.

Max Verstappen starts fifth alongside Alfa Romeo's Kimi Raikkonen in sixth, having gained two positions from the two Renault's, which drop to tenth and 12th with engine penalties – although they won't actually be running a new engine here this weekend, instead they opted to run it on Friday before swapping back, adding it to their pool of components to use at a later date.

Sergio Perez, Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean each benefit from two positions, with McLaren's Lando Norris gaining just one.

The biggest gainer on the grid is Williams' George Russell who starts five places higher in 14th, thanks to those around him dropping down the order.

Carlos Sainz rises to 15th despite a five-place penalty, whilst Antonio Giovinazzi drops three places thanks to an entirely new power unit for Sunday's race. Robert Kubica meanwhile will start from the pitlane, having taken a new engine and rear-wing assembly.
