Max Verstappen took his Red Bull to pole position for the Imola Grand Prix despite struggling earlier in the weekend. If you thought the Ferrari upgrades looked good on Friday, you were right but it wasn’t enough to take the fight to Max.

Ultimately it was McLaren who surprised by continuing their Miami pace with Oscar Piastri in P2 and Lando Norris in P3. The two McLaren’s shut the Ferrari’s out for the front row.

Max has tied Ayrton Senna’s record of eight consecutive poe position.
