Emilia Romagna Grand Prix 2024: Race start time UK, grid positions, weather, how to watch F1 on TV today

The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix takes place today as the 2024 Formula One season heads to Europe.

Max Verstappen holds a 33-point lead over Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez and will be confident of extending his advantage at the top of the standings, after taking pole position on Saturday.

Lando Norris won the Miami Grand Prix a fortnight ago as the British team push their case to be Verstappen’s chief threat going forwards, and the Briton will start the race on the front row.

Of course, the Italian crowd will be fervently backing Ferrari as Charles Leclerc looks for his first race win in almost two years.
