Before we get to the Chinese GP which we remember will be disputed Sunday 21 April at 9am in the morning in Italy, this morning the Sprint format qualifications. In a very confusing session especially due to the rain, there was certainly no shortage of surprises. Starting from the top positions, with Lando Norris who took pole position in the wet, setting a crazy time of 1:57.940, finishing more than a second at all. The Briton's time underwent variations, being first canceled and then readmitted. Surprisingly, the second half is Lewis Hamilton who, despite a less than brilliant session, demonstrates once again that in these conditions he is one of the most stubborn riders on the grid. As well as Fernando Alonsothe Asturian finished third in qualifying ahead of an unusual rider Max Verstappen only fourth. The Dutchman pays for not being able to get his tires up to temperature on an asphalt that turned into an ice rink with the rain.

On the other hand, Charles Leclerc he had a troubled session, making a mistake at the start of Q3 which compromised his performance. Despite a good first lap after replacing the damaged front wing, Leclerc failed to improve further and will start from seventh position on the starting grid for the race, behind Sergio Perez. Excellent performance from behind Kick Clean which places both cars in the top ten, 9° Valtteri Bottas and the home driver was tenth, much applauded Guanyu Zhou.
