F1 Italian Grand Prix LIVE: Lewis Hamilton on pole in Monza

LIVE – Italian Grand Prix: ‘It’s bulls***!’: Lewis Hamilton fumes as he finishes back in SEVENTH after a pit stop nightmare… with Pierre Gasly taking a shock win on day of huge drama and Ferrari crashes

The Italian Grand Prix is supposed to be the showpiece event for Ferrari but it looks set to be the Lewis Hamilton show with the championship leader looking unstoppable in his Mercedes.  

The six-time world champion put in a qualifying clinic on Saturday, clocking the fastest lap time in Formula One history to snatch pole away from team-mate Valtteri Bottas, and it is hard to look past him making it count over 53 laps at Monza.

Carlos Sainz may be the best hope of breaking up the Mercedes one-two, with the McLaren driver performing superbly in qualifying to put his car third for today’s race. Charles Leclerc and Sebastien Vettel, meanwhile, begin outside the points with Ferrari. 

Follow all the action and the drama as it unfolds on track and on the pit-wall right here with Sportsmail’s OLLIE LEWIS. The race begins at 2.10pm BST.
