Max Verstappen has secured his 39th career pole, with penalties shaking up the starting grid for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.

While Friday practice sessions were dominated by Ferrari, with Charles Leclerc leading both runs and Oscar Piastri putting on a strong showing in Saturday's FP3 for McLaren, qualifying threw a curveball at the iconic Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit.

Verstappen, who had been struggling throughout the weekend to find a comfortable setup in the upgraded RB20, grabbed a surprising pole position with a stunning lap time, edging out Piastri by a narrow margin of 0.074 seconds.

However, McLaren's young gun was dealt a three-place grid penalty for impeding Haas driver Kevin Magnussen during qualifying, dropping him down to P5.

The Dutchman will now be joined by Lando Norris in the second McLaren, with both Ferrari drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz, looking to secure a home victory for the Scuderia from P3 and P4 respectively.

Further down the grid, George Russell secured a P6 for Mercedes, while Yuki Tsunoda, who has impressed so far this season, managed to split the Silver Arrows with Lewis Hamilton starting in P8.

Daniel Ricciardo managed ninth, while Nico Hulkenberg found himself just behind in tenth.
