Valtteri Bottas beats Lewis Hamilton to Emilia Romagna GP pole

The Finn was 0.097 seconds quicker than Hamilton, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen third nearly 0.5secs behind. They will do so as long as Red Bull do not out-score them by 34 points. But a messy lap by Hamilton on the final runs gave Bottas a chance and he grabbed it with both hands. I knew I had to push in the last lap and it’s a great feeling when you get those.”. Hamilton said: “Valtteri did a great job and it was a poor lap from myself. His result will pile further pressure on Albon, who is under threat of losing his Red Bull drive at the end of the season.
