Mercedes Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas once again took the second place at the first Tuscan Grand Prix on Saturday.

His teammate Lewis Hamilton took his seventh pole position in nine races this season, reported British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

Bottas was defeated by Hamilton just 0.059 seconds on Formula 1's first competitive experience of the spectacular Mugello circuit.

Red Bull locked out the second row, Max Verstappen ahead of Alex Albon.

And Charles Leclerc gave Ferrari something to celebrate at their 1,000th grand prix with fifth place.

Bottas had topped all three practice sessions and Hamilton looked to be on the back foot heading into qualifying, said the BBC report.

But Hamilton was quickest in the second session by 0.013secs and he extended his margin on the first laps of the top-10 shootout, the report added.
