13 Sep 2020

Join us then for live coverage of the Russian Grand Prix race weekend. In the meantime, I'm sure the highlights from Monza and Mugello will be enough to keep you going. See you soon.

13 Sep 2020

After the last week, it's fair to say the drivers will need a break, and, mercifully, that's just what they've got now. There'll be no racing next week before we head to Sochi for Round 10. Something tells me it won't be quite as good as what Italy gave u

13 Sep 2020

Last week's race was tiring to keep up with, but this was something else. Three Safety Cars, two Red Flags, eight retirements, one helluva race. Can we come to Mugello every year?

13 Sep 2020

That's everyone who finished, but here's the final order anyway: P1 Hamilton, P2 Bottas, P3 Albon, P4 Ricciardo, P5 Perez, P6 Norris, P7 Kvyat, P8 Leclerc, P9 Raikkonen, P10 Vettel, P11 Russell, P12 Grosjean. RET: Stroll, Ocon, Latifi, Magnussen, Giovina

13 Sep 2020

Despite his penalty, Raikkonen did enough to finish in P9 and score two crucial points. That does of course mean the wait for Russell's first point goes on. Hang in there George, at least you beat Grosjean.

13 Sep 2020

It was by no means the perfect anniversary for Ferrari, but they were the only team other than Mercedes to have both cars finish, and they did so in the points. P8 for Leclerc and P10 for Vettel.

13 Sep 2020

Perez, Norris and Kvyat cross the line in P5, P6 and P7, comfortably ahead of the rest.

13 Sep 2020

Ricciardo should be pleased with another P4 finish, but he won't be. He was oh so close to his first podium since 2018.

13 Sep 2020

Bottas follows him home just ahead of Alex Albon who takes his first ever podium!

13 Sep 2020

Lewis Hamilton wins the first ever Tuscan Grand Prix!

13 Sep 2020

Final lap, and the podium positions are pretty much set.

13 Sep 2020

Hamilton sets the fastest lap of the race.

13 Sep 2020

Russell in P11 and chasing Vettel. Even if he doesn't get the German, he may well get his first point as Raikkonen has a five-second time-penalty ahead of him.

13 Sep 2020

Albon homing in on Bottas now...

13 Sep 2020

Vettel passes Grosjean to take P10. Leclerc in P9.

13 Sep 2020

Albon swoops around Ricciardo at Turn 1 to take P3! That's a huge move.

13 Sep 2020

Hamilton two seconds clear of Bottas.

13 Sep 2020

Albon all over the back of Ricciardo...

13 Sep 2020

Grosjean made an excellent start to move up to P9, dropping Vettel and Russell out of the points.

13 Sep 2020

The Finn steps on it and takes P2 back from the Renault!

13 Sep 2020

Albon took P4 from Perez at the restart and is pressuring Bottas.

13 Sep 2020

We're off! Ricciardo flies off the line and takes P2 from Bottas!

13 Sep 2020

Here we go for another standing start...

13 Sep 2020

"Let's finish what we started," says Ricciardo.

13 Sep 2020

Right then, here we go again. Deep breaths everyone.

13 Sep 2020

Raikkonen under investigation for entering the pit-lane late under the safety Car. He did.

13 Sep 2020

So, 14 laps of a flat out sprint are about to begin. This is going to be lots and lots of fun.

13 Sep 2020

Eight minutes until the carnage resumes. What next? Rain?

13 Sep 2020

Have to do a podcast discussing this race in the morning. Absolutely no idea where to begin.

13 Sep 2020

It looks like Stroll had a badly timed puncture and could do nothing to avoid flying off track. 10 minutes on, his car is smoking and refusing to go out.

13 Sep 2020

We're going to have another standing start.

13 Sep 2020

We have a second Red Flag! My oh my.

13 Sep 2020

Hamilton pits now and comes out ahead of Bottas. Both are on mediums.

13 Sep 2020

The SC is out because Stroll went off into the gravel and is out.

13 Sep 2020

Bottas got his wish, and what's more, he managed to pit for fresh tyres while Hamilton had already passed the pit-lane.

13 Sep 2020

We have a Safety Car!

13 Sep 2020

Stroll just over a second down on Ricciardo and just over a second up on Albon. This could get fun.

13 Sep 2020

Stroll and Albon are both catching Ricciardo, but the Aussie seems to be going a lot easier on his tyres. Interesting...

13 Sep 2020

He and Hamilton have both been told to stay off the kerbs for the sake of the tyres.

13 Sep 2020

"Safety Car would be nice now," says Bottas. Yes it would.

13 Sep 2020

Leclerc heads back into the pits and puts on mediums.

13 Sep 2020

So, with everyone on fresh tyres, Leclerc is in P8 and Vettel P11. Well, could be worse...

13 Sep 2020

Bottas goes purple, four tenths quicker than Hamilton. Given the gap is over six seconds, he needs to keep that up.

13 Sep 2020

Albon comes in, puts on mediums and comes out in P5, behind Stroll. P3 for Ricciardo right now...

13 Sep 2020

Bottas asked to have the opposite tyre to Hamilton. They're both on hards...

13 Sep 2020

No. Not even close. Hamilton puts on hards too and comes out easily ahead.

13 Sep 2020

Bottas comes in for hards. Will he pull off the undercut on Hamilton?

13 Sep 2020

Stroll comes in and comes out behind Ricciardo. The Aussie is on track for a podium...

13 Sep 2020

Not for long, as Perez passes him again to take P6 as Norris and Kvyat come in for mediums.

13 Sep 2020

Perez comes in for mediums and comes out in P10, just behind Leclerc. Ferrari has gained a place through strategy. Crazy.

13 Sep 2020

Norris has passed Perez at - yep, you guessed it - Turn 1.

13 Sep 2020

Ricciardo pits for mediums. He's going for the undercut on Stroll.

13 Sep 2020

Russell is pulling away from Vettel. That would've seemed unthinkable 12 months ago.

13 Sep 2020

Ricciardo all over the back of Stroll. Remember, if he gets a podium, Cyril Abitteboul has to get a tattoo.

13 Sep 2020

That did at least bump Vettel up to P10.

13 Sep 2020

Leclerc pits for the hard tyre and comes out in P13. Bottom.

13 Sep 2020

Hamilton maintaining the two-second gap to Bottas out front.

13 Sep 2020

Perez makes easy work of the Monegasque.

13 Sep 2020

Albon the next to go through. Leclerc down to P6 with Perez in his mirrors.

13 Sep 2020

Ricciardo now breezes past the Ferrari! Leclerc just doesn't have the car to fight.

13 Sep 2020

Stroll makes a move stick this time! Albon does the same on Perez.

13 Sep 2020

Ahead of him, Stroll tries a move on Leclerc but can't pull it off. Into the clutches of the Honey Badger they fall...

13 Sep 2020

Could Ricciardo be the one to take it? He's just passed Perez on the straight and moved up to P5.

13 Sep 2020

With Albon dropping down, this is another huge chance for a midfield runner to get on the podium.

13 Sep 2020

Hamilton is flying and has opened up a two second gap.

13 Sep 2020

Leclerc already coming under pressure from Stroll behind him.

13 Sep 2020

Albon had a poor start and has dropped down to P7.

13 Sep 2020

We're back underway! Both Mercedes drivers get away well but the Hamilton sweeps round the outside of Bottas at Turn 1 to take lead!

13 Sep 2020

Here we go. Try to keep things clean this time, boys.

13 Sep 2020

Cars heading back to the grid.

13 Sep 2020

Ocon has retired with an issue. We don't want to jinx it, but the Williams of George Russell is now in the points...

13 Sep 2020

The race will start again in five minutes. Can Hamilton get a better getaway this time?

13 Sep 2020

Shout out to Raikkonen and Grosjean who are somehow both still running despite being in the middle of both incidents.

13 Sep 2020

Bottas told a standing start is very likely. Lovely. Can we come to Italy every week?

13 Sep 2020

Grosjean had the best few of the incident and is furious with the drivers ahead for not going. He called it the most dangerous thing he's ever seen.

13 Sep 2020

So, with the race stopped, just 14 cars are still running.

13 Sep 2020

Bottas waited until the last possible moment to restart the race, seemingly catching the backrunners out. What an insane first nine laps of F1 at Mugello.

13 Sep 2020

We have a Red Flag for the second race in a row.

13 Sep 2020

It looks like the back of the pack thought the SC had come in and set off, flying into those at the front who were still queing behind Bottas. Dangerous.

13 Sep 2020

So too is Latifi. This track is becoming a graveyard for F1 cars.

13 Sep 2020

Magnussen, Sainz and Giovinazzi are all out.

13 Sep 2020

Huge crash at the restart and we have yet another SC immediately!

13 Sep 2020

Safety Car coming in...

13 Sep 2020

So, still under the SC, Bottas leads Hamilton, Leclerc is P3 ahead of Albon, Verstappen is out and Vettel is last. Yeah, pretty quiet start.

13 Sep 2020

It looks like Verstappen lost power at the start, sending him down into the midfield and the Alfa Romeo of Raikkonen.

13 Sep 2020

On the bright side for Ferrari, Charles Leclerc is sitting pretty in P3.

13 Sep 2020

Gasly came together with Grosjean and is also out, while Vettel lost his front wing hitting a spinning Carlos Sainz.

13 Sep 2020

The Dutchman was hit behind and sent into the gravel after a poor start. He wasn't the only one hit...

13 Sep 2020

Verstappen is out! Safety Car.

13 Sep 2020

And we're off! Bottas flies off the line while Hamilton bogs the down! The Finn leads the Brit.

13 Sep 2020

The formation lap is underway. We're about to begin...

13 Sep 2020

Looking at all the tributes and celebrations here, I think I speak for everyone when I say it would be bloody great to see a red car somehow end up on the podium today. Happy Anniversary, Ferrari.

13 Sep 2020

Less of a panic around him now, it looks like the issue has been fixed.

13 Sep 2020

Issues for the car of Verstappen. Engineers have taken the engine cover off and have dry ice at hand. Presumably an overheating issue.

13 Sep 2020

Andrea Bocelli gives us the best possible rendition of the national anthem. Beat that, Lando.

13 Sep 2020

Not only is it boiling hot here, but it's also seriously windy. Tough conditions on an already tough track for the drivers.

13 Sep 2020

With the straight here being the only easy spot for overtaking, don't expect to see to much on track passing. Fear not though, because the pit-stop action could make up for it. This track is incredibly hard on tyres, and with these high temperatures, a t

13 Sep 2020

The cars are all on the grid, and beforehand, Mick Schumacher drove his father's Ferrari F2004 as part of the anniversary celebrations. A truly glorious sight.

13 Sep 2020

The full starting grid: P1 Hamilton, P2 Bottas, P3 Verstappen, P4 Albon, P5 Leclerc, P6 perez, P7 Stroll, P8 Ricciardo, P9 Sainz, P10 Ocon, P11 Norris, P12 Kvyat, P13 Raikkonen, P14 Vettel, P15 Grosjean, P16 Gasly, P17 Giovinazzi, P18 Russell, P19 Latifi

13 Sep 2020

Daniel Ricciardo has looked quick all weekend, but only starts P8 after yellow flags caused by his team-mate hampered his final run in Q3. Carlos Sainz splits him and Ocon.

13 Sep 2020

On Ferrari's 1000th F1 anniversary, Charles Leclerc gave the team some much needed good news by qualifying in the dizzy heights of P5. That being said, with the Mercedes-powered Racing Points of Sergio Perez and Lance Stroll behind him, he'll need the dri

13 Sep 2020

Max Verstappen starts just behind the Mercedes drivers and considering his Red Bull is usually closer to them in the race, he'll be feeling optimistic of getting Bottas at the least. The team will be pleased to see his team-mate Alex Albon starting alongs

13 Sep 2020

For the seventh time this season, Lewis Hamilton will start in P1 after taking the 95th pole position of his career. Bottas was half a tenth slower than his team-mate - let's hope he can stay that close in the race.

13 Sep 2020

It's a beautiful day in the region of Tuscany, and things will get even better in just under an hour's time when the first-ever Tuscan Grand Prix gets underway. Here's how the grid looks for it...

13 Sep 2020

Hello and welcome to Mugello for the first-ever Formula 1 race to be held at this classic, high-speed circuit. Live updates to follow from 1400 local time.

12 Sep 2020

Winner at the Italian Grand Prix last weekend, but at Mugello Pierre Gasly is out in Q1. He is joined by Giovinazzi, Russell, Latifi and Magnussen who finishes P20 and last. Bottas tops the session ahead of Hamilton as the Mercs return to the top.

12 Sep 2020

Russell was on a cracking lap there but pushes too much and dips two wheels into the gravel. He still improves to P12.

12 Sep 2020

One minute to go, the final flying laps will flood in shortly.

12 Sep 2020

Only P11 for Vettel but Leclerc slots into P7 as Ferrari complete their first Q1 run in their 1000th World Championship event.

12 Sep 2020

Why Mercedes, why? A 1:15.749 from Bottas puts him P1 early on, 0.029s ahead of Hamilton. Crucially Verstappen has half a second to find.

12 Sep 2020

Stroll is in to the 1:16s early on with a 1:16.701. Sergio Perez just misses out on that club in the other Racing Point.

12 Sep 2020

Out come Bottas and Hamilton, both on the C3 soft tyres. Verstappen soon follows also on the red-walled softs.

12 Sep 2020

29 races and counting for Russell in Formula 1 without being outqualified by a team-mate. Of course the aim of Q1 is to ditch the five slowest drivers.

12 Sep 2020

George Russell and Nicholas Latifi head straight out in the Williams FW43s. Russell's FP3 was wrecked by a brake issue.

12 Sep 2020

Here we go, Q1 is underway!

12 Sep 2020

Bright blue skies and baking temperatures greet the drivers. Air temp 29c, track temp 46c.

12 Sep 2020

Five minutes to go until Q1. Teams must now choose their engine modes for the rest of the weekend. Will this see Mercedes pull away again, or is Max in the fight for pole?

12 Sep 2020

Sebastian Vettel also struggled in FP3, Charles Leclerc had seven tenths on his team-mate with Vettel managing only P18.

12 Sep 2020

As for those needing to improve, Alex Albon has a second to find on Red Bull team-mate Verstappen heading into qualifying.

12 Sep 2020

Lance Stroll was also on form in FP3 for Racing Point. He ended the final practice session in P4, 0.582s off the pace.

12 Sep 2020

Bottas topped FP3 to make it a clean sweep of practice for the Mercedes man, but the Finn, team-mate Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull's Max Verstappen were separated by less than a tenth. Comfortably the closest Red Bull have been to Mercedes at this stage of

12 Sep 2020

Hello and welcome back to Mugello. Qualifying for the Tuscan Grand Prix is only 30 minutes away and the battle for pole looks wide open. All times are local.

12 Sep 2020

A good Q2 for Renault there with Ricciardo in P5 and Ocon P7, split by the Racing Point of Stroll.

12 Sep 2020

The Mercs top the session again with Hamilton leading the way, but crucially Verstappen is back in the conversation for pole. Norris misses out on Q3 in the McLaren, he is joined by Kvyat, Raikkonen, Vettel and Grosjean.

12 Sep 2020

Three minutes to go. Raikkonen, Grosjean, Vettel, Sainz and Kvyat are the drivers in danger.

12 Sep 2020

Racing Point may be in trouble there for releasing Lance Stroll straight into Verstappen's path in the pit lane.

12 Sep 2020

Mercedes have gone for the softs. It's a 1:15.3 for Hamilton. Bottas P2 and crucially Verstappen is only 0.16s off the pace in P3. All times were set on the softs.

12 Sep 2020

It will be interesting to see which tyres the drivers set their fastest laps on to secure them for the race start. Of course with this being Formula 1's first visit to Mugello there is no data available on the best starting tyre.

12 Sep 2020

Right then, Q2 time. Who will make the shootout for pole?

Don't panic though, they'll round him up for the race so we can crown our first winner of the Tuscan Grand Prix! Join us tomorrow for all the action!

12 Sep 2020

Well then, it's the usual culprit of Hamilton starting from P1. But Bottas and Verstappen look very much on form. Bottas is a bit lost right now though. He didn't park his car on the grid, instead going into the pits, and now can't find the interview area

12 Sep 2020

That includes Bottas! Hamilton takes pole for the Tuscan Grand Prix! Verstappen and Albon form an all-Red Bull second row. Leclerc will start from P5. Perez, Stroll, Ricciardo Sainz and Ocon complete the top 10. Perez and Stroll will swap positions thanks

12 Sep 2020

Hamilton can't improve. Ocon has stopped in Sector 1, this could ruin some laps.

12 Sep 2020

The drivers crawl around this stunning Mugello circuit as they prepare for their final flying laps. Who will be the first ever pole-sitter at Mugello?

12 Sep 2020

Hamilton on provisional pole with a 1:15.144. Verstappen is four tenths shy of that after his first run. Bottas slots into P2 and Verstappen's team-mate Albon is P4 after those first runs.

12 Sep 2020

Perez carries a one-place grid penalty into this session after crashing into Raikkonen in FP2 on Friday, but the Mexican racer will still fancy his chances of a solid starting position.

12 Sep 2020

Right then, time for Q3! Will Mercedes keep up their 100% record of claiming pole position in 2020, or can Verstappen put a blemish on that record.

11 Sep 2020

It's fair to say today was just about getting to know Mugello for everyone. With two sessions in the bag, we should see a lot more true pace tomorrow morning ahead of qualifying. FP3 gets underway at noon local time, so join us then for live commentary of

11 Sep 2020

The final running order: P1 Bottas, P2 Hamilton, P3 Verstappen, P4 Albon, P5 Ricciardo, P6 Ocon, P7 Perez, P8 Gasly, P9 Raikkonen, P10 Leclerc, P11 Stroll, P12 Vettel, P13 Sainz, P14 Norris, P15 Kvyat, P16 Russell, P17 Giovinazzi, P18 Latifi, P19 Magnus

11 Sep 2020

Albon finished it in P4, seven tenths behind his team-mate and just ahead of the Renaults of Daniel Ricciardo and Esteban Ocon.

11 Sep 2020

Well, there was little in the way of shocks in FP2. Bottas ends it on top, ahead of Hamilton and Verstappen. Yeah, the usual suspects.

11 Sep 2020

Anyway, that's that for Friday running here at Mugello.

11 Sep 2020

Vettel's engine stops right at the end of the session and can't coast back to the pits. Hopefully not a major issue.

11 Sep 2020

Verstappen reports his mediums are f*cked after just eight laps. If that's the case in the case, we're looking at a two-stopper.

11 Sep 2020

Judging by session, Renault are the quickest midfield team. McLaren will be hoping to prove that wrong tomorrow. They're currently in P13 and P14.

11 Sep 2020

Most out on long runs fitted with mediums or hards, so don't expect many green laps.

11 Sep 2020

Cars heading back out. 12 minutes to go.

11 Sep 2020

Red Flag to clear some debris from the Racing Point.

11 Sep 2020

Oof. Replays show he got clipped by Perez as the Mexican came out of the pits.

11 Sep 2020

Raikkonen the latest to meet the gravel. More and more drivers struggling to keep things on track.

11 Sep 2020

Yellow flags as Vettel does a neat 360. He really styled that spin out.

11 Sep 2020

Leclerc is in P10. That's probably more representative of his actual pace than his FP1 result.

11 Sep 2020

Grosjean is out of the session as his team try to fix an electronics issue.

11 Sep 2020

Noah's Ark stuff in the top six. Mercedes, Mercedes, Red Bull, Red Bull, Renault, Renault.

11 Sep 2020

A strong lap from Albon puts him P3 before Verstappen goes ever so slightly faster.

11 Sep 2020

Bottas does a 1:16.989, while Hamilton goes two tenths slower.

11 Sep 2020

We're back up and running.

11 Sep 2020

He can't get his car running and Red Flags are waving while it's cleared.

11 Sep 2020

We have our first big incident of the weekend, and it's courtesy of Lando Norris. The Brit gets his front left on the gravel exiting the corner and goes off and into the barrier.

11 Sep 2020

Ricciardo goes P2, half a tenth down on Bottas.

11 Sep 2020

Vettel goes P6 and Leclerc P5. Lots of running on the soft tyre to come.

11 Sep 2020

An hour to go here.

11 Sep 2020

Hamilton makes it a painfully familiar top three.

11 Sep 2020

Bottas takes top spot with a 1:18.019. Him and Verstappen are both running the medium tyre.

11 Sep 2020

Perez and Stroll go P3 and P4. Considering they finished in P18 and P19 this morning, it's already a better session.

11 Sep 2020

Verstappen goes P1 with a 1:18.281.

11 Sep 2020

Yellow flags as Leclerc spins takes a brief trip into the gravel at a corner I can't spell nor pronounce. Sorry.

11 Sep 2020

Battery problems for Grosjean. He might be stuck in the garage for a while.

11 Sep 2020

Vettel goes just under a second slower than the McLaren.

11 Sep 2020

Norris goes top with a 1:18.658, half a second quicker than Grosjean.

11 Sep 2020

FP2 is underway.

11 Sep 2020

As always, there was some squabbling on-track this morning. Romain Grosjean wasn't too happy when a slow Perez in front of him held him up, while Verstappen complained about Stroll using DRS to overtake him during a long run. Those pesky pink panthers.

11 Sep 2020

Despite the fact that it's a brand new track on the F1 calendar, and a rather tricky one at that, there were major incidents in FP1. Will that change in FP2 as drivers get more complacent? We think so...

11 Sep 2020

Behind them, Charles Leclerc gave the small crowds something to cheer about by finishing in P3, ahead of Lewis Hamilton. Don't get used to that site though...

11 Sep 2020

Usual FP1 topper Valtteri Bottas continued the trend this morning, going marginally quicker than the Red Bull of Max Verstappen.

11 Sep 2020

Hello and welcome to live coverage of FP2 of the Tuscan Grand Prix! All times are local to Mugello.

11 Sep 2020

So, the first F1 session at Mugello went off without a hitch. Given how quick the track is, that's a credit to the drivers. Can they keep it up in FP2? We'll find out in just over two hours, so join us then. Who knows, maybe we'll see a Ferrari on top aga

11 Sep 2020

FP1's final running order: P1 Bottas, P2 Verstappen, P3 Leclerc, P4 Hamilton, P5 Gasly, P6 Ocon, P7 Kvyat, P8 Norris, P9 Albon, P10 Ricciardo, P11 Raikkonen, P12 Grosjean, P13 Vettel, P14 Giovinazzi, P15 Sainz, P16 Russell, P17 Magnussen, P18 Stroll, P19

11 Sep 2020

Leclerc getting P3 in FP1 is by no means a guarantee that Ferrari will be getting into Q3 tomorrow, but it's a good start, and gives the crowds something to cheer. Let's just hope it's not the high point of their weekend...

11 Sep 2020

As per usual, Bottas ends it in top spot, around half a tenth ahead of Verstappen.

11 Sep 2020

No late improvements and FP1 is done.

11 Sep 2020

Hamilton apparently has some Power Unit damage. That will be music to Bottas's ears.

11 Sep 2020

It hasn't been the best session for Racing Point, with Stroll and Perez P18 and P19. They rarely show their full hand in FP1 though.

11 Sep 2020

Everybody out on track for their final runs. Most are on softs.

11 Sep 2020

Not to jinx it, but it looks like a Ferrari will end the session in the top three. Dizzy heights indeed.

11 Sep 2020

20 minutes to go here, and the track is pretty empty at the moment. Most quali runs done.

11 Sep 2020

P2 for Verstappen.

11 Sep 2020

Bottas spoils all the fun by immediately taking P1 from Leclerc. Well, it was fun while it lasted.

11 Sep 2020

A Ferrari goes top!! Take a picture!!

11 Sep 2020

On softs, Hamilton goes quickest with a 1:18.409. Lots of qualifying runs happening.

11 Sep 2020

Norris briefly goes P1 with a 1:18.981 before Ocon goes a tenth quicker.

11 Sep 2020

Grosjean goes P5 with soft tyres...

11 Sep 2020

Raikkonen goes P3, just ahead of Leclerc. Have F1 let Ferrari go back to their 2019 engine for this weekend as an anniversary gift?

11 Sep 2020

Hamilton takes P2 on mediums. Nothing between him and Verstappen.

11 Sep 2020

Vettel's not having the best of mornings. On hards, he's down in P17. Leclerc meanwhile has just gone P2.

11 Sep 2020

Looking at this track, it's fast, challenging and in a stunning area, but overtaking anywhere asides from the straight will be seriously hard. Maybe impossible.

11 Sep 2020

Verstappen takes top spot by a few thousandths of a second, while Hamilton goes P3.

11 Sep 2020

Leclerc goes P5, sending the crowd wild. Not really, but, for the first time this year, there *are* actually some fans in the grandstands again!

11 Sep 2020

Verstappen is doing a number of laps on the hard tyre and has just gone P2.

11 Sep 2020

The Frenchman has now taken P1 with a 1:19.859.

11 Sep 2020

Ignore me, he's had his time deleted. Race winner Pierre Gasly (yes we're going to put "race-winner" before his name all weekend) goes P2 for real, four tenths off Bottas.

11 Sep 2020

Raikkonen goes half a second slower than his compatriot.

11 Sep 2020

The Finn improves to do a 1:20.540 on hard tyres.

11 Sep 2020

Bottas puts in the first ever timed lap of an F1 race weekend at Mugello, a 1:24.124.

11 Sep 2020

Norris in good spirits, singing his heart out on his radio check. Come on Lando, we're in Italy, give us some Bocelli at least.

11 Sep 2020

The Red Bulls are the first out on track.

11 Sep 2020

Five minutes until lights go green for FP1 at a clear and sunny Mugello.

11 Sep 2020

Who will be the closest team to them is far less certain. While that title has usually gone to Max Verstappen this season, the McLaren looked to be genuinely quicker than the Red Bull at Monza.

11 Sep 2020

Away from Scuderia matters, Mercedes will be hoping to get back on track following an uncharacteristically bad showing at Monza last time out. In terms of pace at least, they'll be at the top of the timesheets from this morning onwards.

11 Sep 2020

Speaking of Vettel, he'll be getting as much, if not more attention than his team this weekend given it's just been announced he'll be driving for Aston Martin next year. You can't help but think the timing wasn't coincidental. You're sacking me? Fine,

11 Sep 2020

So, will it be a happy anniversary for the Italian team? It doesn't look likely. There aren't many tracks that suit the SF1000 but, with its high-speed corners and huge straight, Mugelle really doesn't. Ah well, with a special retro burgundy livery, at
