Marko 'in talks' with Honda and others about 2026

Warm-up lap starts at: 15:00 Local | 15:00 CET | 14:00 UK | 06:00 LA | 22:00 Tokio

Charles Leclerc drove an amazing lap in front of Ferrari's home crowd at Monza during qualifying today and will start from pole position tomorrow. That result is the perfect start for the team that celebrates their 75 years of existence with their special car livery.

The weather was warm and dry, with ambient temperatures of 30 degrees centigrade and track temperatures of 41 degrees centigrade during qualifying.

All the drivers used the P Zero Red soft tyre from start to finish of qualifying. Both the Red Bulls and Ferraris used just one set to get through Q1 and Q2. The soft tyres proved well-suited to the qualifying hour in Monza, showing a strong and consistent level of grip.

What's the best 2022 Italian F1 Grand Prix strategy

The 53 laps of the Pirelli-sponsored Italian Grand Prix at Monza’s “Temple of Speed” should be a one-stop race, thanks to the relatively contained degradation levels expected if the weather remains as forecast, not to mention a comparatively big pit lane time loss.

What's the best 2022 Italian F1 Grand Prix strategy

The best one-stopper on paper involves starting on the soft to make the most of its initial grip, before moving onto the P Zero White Hard, which should provide a consistent and competitive performance in the predicted warm weather conditions. The alternative one-stopper consists of a longer initial stint on the P Zero Yellow Medium before then going on to the hard.

  1. Donalf

    Should be a really good race today with the grid so mixed up by penalties, commentators won't know if their coming or going at the start. Let's just hope its a clean race

  2. shroppyfly

    It wasnt a good race Don , it was a brilliant race for Rb, Max again showing everyone in the Merc garage why Hamish is a spent force and George is the new King, no pun intended .
