Carlos Sainz looks out to fight for the pole of Monza

Bottas was the fastest ahead of the two McLarens, with the Madrid second. Hamilton, fifth, is the favorite for this afternoon in Italy.


McLaren and Renault scare Red Bull before qualifying for the Italian GP, which must be held at 3pm at Monza (Movistar F1). Valtteri Bottas commanded in the last free practice but Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris planted the MCL35 second and third, respectively, ahead of Ricciardo and Lewis Hamilton. Being in front of Mercedes is utopian, the champions dedicated themselves to other tasks in this practice, such as preparing the long runs with the soft tire, assuming that pole is safe. But the sensations left by the Madrilenian are very good, just like his partner, also with the medium rubber.

Ricciardo will also be in that fight for the third place that can compromise Max Verstappen on Sunday, although at the last minute the alarms went off in the Renault garage for a breakdown in the Australian's car that caused a red flag at the last minute. If it is mild, you will have no problem appearing in the classification.

Otherwise, some advantage of the cars already mentioned over Racing Point, which closes the top-10, and little Ferrari at Monza, although somewhat more than what was seen at Spa. Leclerc was eleventh, perhaps close to the Q3 crush. But they are too far from the positions of honor, those that, for once, they can occupy unusual like McLaren and Renault.
