F1 LIVE: Lewis Hamilton left red-faced as Nico Rosberg picks sides in F1 feud

The Italian Grand Prix gets underway this afternoon from the Autodromo Nazionale Monza as Max Verstappen looks to extend his record-breaking winning run to ten. In qualifying, Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz Jr finished just ahead of the Dutchman with his team-mate Charles Leclerc placing third.

Both Ferrari drivers faced a post-race investigation for failing to follow the race director’s instructors for the maximum lap time. However, at the end of qualifying, it was announced there would be no further action required.

Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton will start today’s race in P8 after a difficult middle segment while George Russell came fourth ahead of Sergio Perez, Alex Albon and Oscar Piastri. In Q1, Zhou Guanyu, Alpine pair Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon, Kevin Magnussen and Lance Stroll were eliminated.

Meanwhile, Q2 saw Yuki Tsunoda, Liam Lawson, Nico Hulkenberg, Valtteri Bottas and Logan Sargeant get knocked out.
