Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will be keen to continue his dominance at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
The British superstar has won the last two races in the 2020 season which are the Eifel Grand Prix and Portuguese Grand Prix. 
Hamilton will be confident of securing a third consecutive win in Imola and edge closer to defending his Formula One world title.

His teamamte Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen of Red Bull finished second and third respectively at the Portuguese Grand Prix.
Hamilton is sitting pretty at the top of the Drivers' Championship standings having accumulated 256 points from 12 races.
His teammate Valtteri Bottas is now placed second with 179 points, while Verstappen is still placed third having collected 162 points. 
If Bottas fails to score and Hamilton bags another win in Imola and fastest lap for a maximum haul of 26 points, Lewis will still be one shy of sealing that record-equalling seventh championship.

Hamilton now holds the record for the most race wins (92) and he reflected on the Portuguese Grand Prix where he had a difficult start. 
“Of course I wasn’t expecting to lose ground to people at the start," Hamilton said. 
"But then to fight through the way I was able to afterwards. I was thinking it was a marathon and not a sprint.
"So, I was probably a little over cautious, but I have a championship to lose, so I did what I thought was right."
Mercedes are still placed at the top of Constructors' standings followed by second-placed Red Bull and third-placed Racing Point.
