F1 Italian GP qualifying - Start time, how to watch & more

After another action-packed Friday in F1, there was plenty of talking points both on and off track at Monza.

Sainz topped Friday practice from Max Verstappen by 0.143s, but both are part of a troupe of drivers all set to serve grid penalties at the Italian GP. 

It will provide Charles Leclerc with a strong opportunity to win at Monza, after he finished Friday practice third overall just under two-tenths off Sainz’s best lap, with Verstappen, Sainz, Sergio Perez, Lewis Hamilton, Yuki Tsunoda and Valtteri Bottas all due to take grid penalties.

Off the track Porsche announced its F1 partnership negotiations with Red Bull had broken down and the two parties won’t join forces from 2026.

F1 will also pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II across the Italian GP following her death at the age of 96 on Thursday. Teams are running tributes on the cars, while a minute’s silence was held before first practice and will also be held before the start of the grand prix on Sunday.

Qualifying for the Italian GP starts at 3pm local time (2pm BST), using the regular Q1, Q2 and Q3 knockout session format.
