    Will Max Verstappen take pole position for the first time this season at Mugello this afternoon?

    • Yes

    • No, he comes second

    • No, he comes third

    • No, he comes fourth

    • No, he comes fifth

    • No, he finishes outside the top five

    The race management does not

    adhere

    to

    track limits

    at Mugello.

    This is not a cut yet, but if you don't hit the curbs at all (so completely over the green), it is cut.

    What Bottas is doing here also seems to cut off, but not according to the race management.

    Normally around this time I would write down some statistics about the qualifying results of Max Verstappen and the last pole sitters on this circuit, but that is of course not possible now.

    It is the first time in Formula 1 history that the premier class of motorsport will qualify at the beautiful Mugello.

    Verstappen split Mercedes drivers in third practice at Mugello


    Max Verstappen has a good dress rehearsal for the qualification of the Grand Prix of Tuscany.

    The Dutchman clocked the second time in the third free practice at Mugello, one hundredth behind Valtteri Bottas.

    Lewis Hamilton follows in third place and concedes a tenth to his teammate's time.

    In that respect, it promises to be an exciting qualifying session this afternoon at 3 p.m.
