Tense qualifying ended with a surprising result – after Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel beat Montoya’s track record by turns, Kimi Raikkonen finished his flying lap beating them both with incredible 1:19.119s.

Thus, the 1-2 was gained by Ferrari team, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas on the second row, following them.

All of the top-10 drivers will start on Supersoft tyres, as their best laps in Q2 were made on these type of compounds.

Pirelli has brought three types of compounds for the Italian Grand Prix –  white Medium, yellow Soft and red Supersoft. Here's which compounds every driver still has available for the race.

Available tyres


Pirelli also revealed the quickest strategy for the race:

“Best option is a one-stopper. Start on supersoft for 20-30 laps then one stint on soft to the flag. There’s quite a wide window for the pit stop.

Second-quickest strategy is also a one-stopper. Start on soft for 25 to 35 laps, then supersoft to the end.

There’s an alternative strategy too, especially in case temperatures are much warmer for the race and there’s blistering on supersoft. Start on supersoft for 15-20 laps then medium to the flag.”

As for the power unit changes and penalties ahead of the Grand Prix, let’s overview the below list.

  • Max Verstappen and Marcus Ericsson will use new internal combustion engines (ICE); unlike Max, Marcus got a penalty for that change
  • Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg will have a new internal combustion engine (ICE), turbocharger (TC), motor generator unit-neat(MGU-H), motor generator unit-kinetic (MGU-K), energy store (ES), control electronics (CE) and got a penalty as well
  • Lewis Hamilton, Lance Stroll, Brendon Hartley and Kevin Magnussen will use new gearboxes and receive no penalties

And lastly, take a look at the starting grid for the Italian Grand Prix (Note that Nico Hulkenberg also has a 10 place grid penalty for causing a collision during previous GP) :
