Hamilton leads only practice session as F1 returns to Imola

IMOLA, Italy — Lewis Hamilton finished ahead of Max Verstappen in the only practice session for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix on Saturday as Formula One returned to the Imola circuit for the first time since 2006.

Hamilton clocked 1 minute, 14.726 seconds on the Enzo and Dino Ferrari track to finish 0.297 ahead of Verstappen’s Red Bull.

Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas was third, 0.492 behind.

In a sign of F1’s progress, Hamilton was more than eight seconds faster than Michael Schumacher’s pole position time for the 2006 San Marino GP at Imola.

Mercedes can clinch a record seventh straight constructors’ title in Sunday’s race unless Red Bull outscores it by 34 points — something Red Bull hasn’t done in more than four years.

Only one 90-minute practice session was held as part of an abbreviated weekend inserted into the rescheduled calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Pierre Gasly of Alphatauri was fourth and Charles Leclerc of Ferrari was fifth.

Qualifying was scheduled for later Saturday.

SMART CLARK GIGA CITY — The Philippine Basketball Association will be resuming its games on Tuesday, November 3, following a new schedule of games.

Teams, meanwhile, can return to practices beginning Sunday, November 1.

PBA commissioner Willie Marcial said the Department of Interior and Local Government has recommended to the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases the insertion of a marshal within the bubble to “to oversee and ensure the league’s compliance with [the new] health protocols.”

The league postponed its games and practice on Friday afternoon following the IATF’s drafting of new parameters.

Part of these new measures, according to Marcial, is the setting up of a temporary quarantine facility within Clark Freeport.

The league will be shelving a total of nine games before accommodating a new schedule, not counting the first three matches that were called off due to two false positive cases.
