Tuscan Grand Prix qualifying – Start time, how to watch, channel & more

The qualifying for the inaugural Tuscan Grand Prix will take place on September 12 at the Ferrari-owned Mugello circuit. Here’s how you can watch the grid-deciding session in the comfort of your living room.

Mercedes has an unbroken record in qualifying so far in 2020, with Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton claiming all eight pole positions between them.

Out of the two, Hamilton maintains an upper hand with six poles to Bottas’ two – and the British driver has not qualified outside the front row all season long, although he was hit with a grid penalty in the Austrian Grand Prix.

Carlos Sainz emerged as Mercedes’ closest qualifier at Monza last weekend, while Sergio Perez also performed well to put Racing Point on the second row of the grid.

Ahead of this weekend’s Tuscan GP, Perez announced that he would leave Racing Point at the end of the year, with Sebastian Vettel taking his place at the team that would be rebranded as Aston Martin in 2021.
