Sainz takes pole position at Monza

Carlos Sainz put in an authoritative race at the home of Ferrari, taking the Pole Position of the Italian GP.

The Maranello team set the pace at Monza, and put pressure on Max Verstappen, who was already tasting the privileged position in Q3; however, the Spanish driver showed up to set the best time by only 13 thousandths of a second.

Behind the Dutchman was Charles Leclerc, 67 thousandths of a second off his Ferrari team-mate, with George Russell and Sergio Perez following behind.

The change of a used power unit for Checo hampered his Italian GP Qualifying, who had to replace it due to problems in Practice 3, so he will have to start from fifth in tomorrow's race.

No penalty for Ferrari

Although Carlos Sainz took Pole Position, Ferrari had to wait for the decision taken by the race directior, who announced that he was in the eye of the storm for what happened in Q1.

Both the Spaniard and Charles Leclerc had to go before the stewards for allegedly going too slow in the preparation laps.

However, they were adjudged not to have infringed the regulations, and now they can celebrate Carlos Sainz's Pole Position.

Italian Grand Prix Qualifying disappointments

Aston Martin's drivers are poles apart; while Fernando Alonso continues to push the car, it's Lance Stroll, who will start in last position, who can't figure it out.

Although the Canadian was absent from Practice 1 as he gave up his seat to Felipe Drugovich, and missed Practice 2 at dawn due to a car failure, the reality is that he is not at a good level.

In addition to Stroll, the Alpines were left to rue, with Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon failing to find speed and being eliminated from Q1.
