Following a fragmented FP3, which came with its own frenetic conclusion, it is time for qualifying for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc headed both practice sessions on Friday at Imola, in his new and improved SF-24.

Whilst he was not able to continue that form this morning, he will be in the fight for pole position - as will team-mate Carlos Sainz, no doubt.

The McLarens did not have the opportunity to show their pace yesterday, but were mighty impressed in FP3. Leading a one-two was Oscar Piastri, three-tenths of a second clear of Lando Norris.

Lastly, the off-colour Red Bull of Max Verstappen endured a torrid FP1 and FP2. Things did look better in the final practice session, but he will be under pressure from the Ferraris and McLarens.

His team-mate Sergio Perez bringing out a late red flag denied the opportunity to fully access the one-lap pace of the three teams. There are plenty of unknowns, but we do know it is likely to be close.
