10:21 That's all from us! We'll see you back here tomorrow afternoon for F1's first ever Tuscan Grand Prix - take care.
10:20 Here's the report from the Tuscan GP's qualifying session:
F1 Tuscan GP: Hamilton takes pole position at Mugello from Bottas
10:06 11. Norris, 12. Kvyat, 13. Raikkonen, 14. Vettel, 15. Grosjean, 16. Gasly, 17. Giovinazzi, 18. Russell, 19. Latifi, 20. Magnussen.
10:05 Final order, then: 1. Hamilton, 2. Bottas, 3. Verstappen, 4. Albon, 5. Leclerc, 6. Perez, 7. Stroll, 8. Ricciardo, 9. Sainz, 10. Ocon
10:04 Bit of Talladega Nights stuff from Verstappen and Hamilton, walking across the finishing line. Bottas, meanwhile, has got a little bit lost.
10:02 Ocon was indeed the culprit, spinning off at Turn 5 to spoil a fair few laps.
10:01 Ocon's got going - but that's it! Hamilton gets his 95th F1 pole position.
10:00 Leclerc goes up to fifth! It seems that Ocon was the cause of the yellow.
10:00 Hamilton can't improve, he doesn't quite have enough - as there's a yellow flag in sector 1!
09:58 Verstappen's finding a few extra fractions of time on this run, as Hamilton seems to be going a bit quicker in sector 2.
09:58 Everyone's out, except Perez, looking to make the most of the fresh soft tyres.
09:56 As I write that, there's now cars going out for the second lot of runs. Can anyone break into the 1m14s?
09:56 Bar Perez's return to the pits, it's all quiet on-track.
09:55 That's P5 for Perez, then, who will take a one-place penalty at the end of play today for punting Raikkonen in FP2 at Turn 1.
09:53 Perez is out on track - and it seems Ocon will do just one lap here.
09:53 Ricciardo gets into sixth, as Leclerc goes seventh for the time being.
09:52 Verstappen and Albon sweep into third and fourth, with Albon 0.4s down on Verstappen here.
09:52 That's a 1m15.144s for Hamilton, scorching to top spot, as Bottas is just a whisker slower than his team-mate.
09:51 Stroll then does a 1m16.356s to go top.
