Verstappen got the better of Charles Leclerc in yesterday's Sprint race, but the Ferrari driver led for most of the 21 laps and has every chance of picking up a third win of the season today.
Behind those two, Sergio Perez in the second Red Bull and Carlos Sainz in the other Ferrari will have their own duel as these two teams continue to dominate the 2022 season.
McLaren increasingly look like the best of the rest, with Lando Norris fifth and Daniel Ricciardo sixth, while Valtteri Bottas will start in seventh for Alfa Romeo and Kevin Magnussen in eighth for Haas. But don't expect Mercedes to be challenging for the podium: with George Russell in 11th and Lewis Hamilton in 14th, they'll just be grateful to score a point or two.

How to watch the 2022 F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream at Imola for FREE
If you're lucky enough to live in Austria or Luxembourg then you can enjoy every second of the F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream at Imola for FREE.
But what if you're usually based in one of those countries but aren't at home for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream? Maybe you're on holiday and don't want to spend money on pay TV in another country, when you'd usually be able to watch for free at home?
Don't worry — you can watch it via a VPN instead. To take Austria as an option, an Austrian who's currently outside of the country could tune into ServusTV (opens in new tab) for Emilia Romagna Grand Prix coverage simply by signing up for a free account then using one of the best VPN services. Our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab), but you'll find others in our best VPN services list.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Austrian service, you'd select Austria from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to ServusTV or another website and watch the race.
2022 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live streams around the world
How to watch the F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream at Imola in the US
As with every F1 race this season, the 2022 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream will be shown on ESPN. Coverage will be spread across the main ESPN channel, ESPN2, ESPN3 and ESPNEWS, with the race itself on ESPN.
Just bear in mind that time differences for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix mean that some of the sessions start very early in the morning; practice 2 begins at 6.30 a.m. ET / 3.30 a.m. PT on Saturday, for instance.
There are several ways you can access ESPN — and two of them are among our picks for the best streaming services.
As well as being available through your cable service, you can also stream the race via the ESPN app, or on the Watch section of ESPN's website. However, you'll need to authenticate with your satellite, cable or live TV provider credentials to watch any sessions.
If you don't want to pay for live ESPN in some fashion or another, your best alternative is F1 TV Pro (opens in new tab). This is F1's own official F1 live stream service, and as with ESPN's own coverage, it uses the feed from Sky Sports F1.
F1 TV Pro costs $10 per month or $80 for the season, which is much better value considering there are 22 races this year. Plus you also get Formula 2, Formula 3 and Porsche Supercup races, and F1's archive of classic Grands Prix.
And remember, if you're usually based in the U.S. but aren't there at the moment, you can still watch the services you already subscribe to via a VPN such as ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) — meaning you can view the F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream from anywhere in the world.
How to watch the 2022 F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream at Imola in the UK
As usual, Sky Sports F1 will show the 2022 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix live stream, and in up to 4K resolution, with the race itself starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday (April 24).
You'll need to be a Sky Sports (opens in new tab) subscriber to watch it: the Sky Sports F1 channel is available for £18 per month, and there are packages available that give you lots more channels for only a bit extra.
To follow it in ultra high-definition 4K, you'll need to pay a little more: you'll need a Sky Q set-top box or Sky Glass and a package that includes both Ultra HD and Sky Sports F1. In total, that'd come to at least £45 a month, plus a £20 one-off payment if you're not an existing subscriber.
A far cheaper option is to buy a Now Sports Pass (opens in new tab). This will give you all 11 of the Sky Sports channels for a limited time, with pricing starting at £9.99 for a Day Pass and £33.99 for one month. There's no 4K available here, though.
Again, if you're usually based in the U.K. but are elsewhere at the moment, you can still watch the services you subscribe to by using one of the best VPN services.

The TSN app (opens in new tab) will allow you to live stream the race from your phone, streaming box or supported device.
