Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The United States Grand Prix is just about here, and Lewis Hamilton has pole once again. Hamilton is looking to wrap up the Formula One Drivers Championship with a win on Sunday, while Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari will start second and will hope that things go badly for Hamilton.

Sunday’s race is the only Formula One event to be held in the United States, though there has been talk of more races in the future. The race will begin at 3 p.m. ET and will be broadcast by NBC in the United States. A live stream can be found via NBC Sports beginning at the same time.

All eyes will be on Hamilton before the race as well, as Hamilton has said he’s considering kneeling during the playing of the national anthem as part of the larger protests sweeping the country. Hamilton is a British F1 driver, but he is also the only black driver on the grid.

He leads the Drivers Championship standings, after trailing Vettel earlier in the year. His Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas, will start third on the grid, with Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull to keep him company on the second row.

Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari and Esteban Ocon of Force India comprise the third row. Carlos Sainz Jr, now driving for Renault instead of Toro Rosso, will start seventh, ahead of Fernando Alonso of McLaren, Sergio Perez of Force India and Felipe Massa of Williams, to round out the top 10.

Daniil Kvyat is back in action for the race, filling the spot vacated by Sainz when he made the move to Renault. Kvyat himself was replaced at Toro Rosso in favor of Pierre Gasly, who will not be racing on Sunday due to commitments to another series, and he will be replaced by Brendon Hartley for Toro Rosso.

Stoffel Vandoorne of McLaren has a five-place grid penalty for a power unit change. Max Verstappen of Red Bull will be starting 18th on the grid thanks to a 15-place grid penalty. Nico Hulkenberg of Renault has a 20-place grid penalty, also for a power unit change. Finally, Hartley, in his first race, is starting from the very back with a 25-place grid penalty for his own power unit change.

Below is all you need to know to watch the action on Sunday as well as the full lineup and starting grid for the grand prix.
