pitlane. The single-seaters are already taking positions to be the first to hit the track after this forced break.

The driver manages to get to the pit area to repair the car and still have options to compete in Q1. We’ll see if he has time to fix all the damage caused by the flames.
The first racing cars come out on the track and mark the first times. For now, Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes rules with 1:23.419. Behind are Verstappen and Vettel, but at a great distance.
Qualifying for the Emilia Romagna GP will begin in just two minutes, starting at 5:00 p.m., at the Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit in Imola, Italy.
The teams make the final preparations in the single-seaters. Among them Ferrari, which starts as the favorite after the good results obtained in the first practice session. Leclerc and Sainz have finished in first and second place in the table respectively.
Last year’s Formula 1 Emilia Romagna GP classification ended with Britain’s Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) in the lead with a time of 1:14.411. At the top he was accompanied by Max Verstappen and Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez, both from Red Bull.
Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, today favorites to sneak into the top of the table, were fourth and eleventh respectively. The Spanish Fernando Alonso finished in position number 15.
German driver Michael Shumacher is the driver who has won the most times on this stage, a total of seven times. The last one was in 2006, the year in which he retired from Formula 1, although he returned a few years later with Mercedes. The first was the fateful 1994, when the legendary Brazilian pilot Ayrton Senna lost his life.
In this scenario, the legendary Formula 1 driver, Ayrton Senna, died. However, he has not been the only one who has lost his life in this circuit. Misfortune also ran into the Austrian Roland Ratzenberger.
In the case of the Brazilian, Senna collided head-on at the Tamburello corner. After the strong impact, he was transferred to the Maggiore hospital in Bologna, where he died hours later. For this reason there are images of the pilot in that curve.
