Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton scored his 99th F1 pole position of his career, during the 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix qualifying session today. The Mercedes driver will start from P1 for the first time in Imola. It was the 127th pole for the Mercedes F1 team. Hamilton has now scored 30 pole positions on 30 different circuits.

The session got red flagged early when AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda crashed into the barrier backwards at turn 15. The Japanese driver seemed to go in too fast into the chicane and lost control. The clock was stopped with 12 minutes to go. 5 minutes before the end Mick Schumacher (Haas), NIcholas Latifi (Williams) Nikita Mazepin (Haas), George Russell (Williams) and Yuki Tsunoda were in the elimination zone. In the end both Williams drivers made it into Q2 since a long time, which is great effort for the team from Woking..

Both Mercedes and Red Bull driver Max Verstappen went out on medium tyres to be able to start on that compound in tomorrow's race. With 3 minutes to go the Daniel Ricciardo (McLaren), Fernando Alonso (Alpine), Esteban Ocon (Alpine), Nicholas Latifi (Williams) and Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) had to improve to get into Q3. In the end Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz was eliminated for Q3.

After the first stint Lewis Hamilton was on pole with a time of 1:14.411 min. His main rival Max Verstappen was second on 0,091s and his Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez on P3 on 0,0254s. In the second stint Lando Norris was second quickest but got his lap time deleted because he didn't obey the track limits. Sergio Perez will start from front row for the first time tomorrow.

The pole time of last years Emilia Romagna GP was a 1:13.609 min driven by Valtteri Bottas in the Mercedes.
