Bottas: No doubt Lewis and Max will be chasing me

Valtteri Bottas has achieved pole position for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. On the iconic circuit in Imola, he managed to outperform his teammate Lewis Hamilton on the last lap, allowing him to start in first place tomorrow.

"You always have to [fight for it]. They are never easy pole positions. Really enjoyed it. This track when you push flat out is beautiful. I knew I had to improve in the last lap and found those small gains that were needed. It's a great feeling when you get those," Bottas explains after qualifying.

Challenge from Verstappen on Sunday

"Turn 2-3 that was something I was really working on and only got there at the end, and the last couple of corners as well. It's going to be a good fight. It's one of the longest runs in the calendar into Turn One. No doubt Lewis and Max will be chasing me, but it's a good place to start," Bottas concludes.
