IMOLA, ITALY - MAY 19: Carlos Sainz of Spain and Ferrari walks in the Paddock prior to the F1 Grand

Ferrari may not have made the front row for their first home race of 2024, but they do have both cars on the second for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, thanks in part to a grid penalty for McLaren's Oscar Piastri.

Max Verstappen took an eighth consecutive pole for Red Bull, after a sublime lap pipped Piastri, before the Australian was demoted three grid places for impeding earlier in the session.

That means team mate - and winner of the last round - Lando Norris will line up alongside Verstappen for the Imola start, with the scarlet cars of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz immediately behind.

Other qualifying stand-outs in the top 10 include RB's Yuki Tsunoda in P7 and the Haas of Nico Hulkenberg in tenth. By contrast, Fernando Alonso had a miserable Saturday and after late set-up changes on his Aston Martin's suspension will now start from the pit lane.
