F1 2023 Italian GP Starting Grid – Final Grid Positions

    Sainz edged out Verstappen to pole position in a tight qualifying battle at Monza.


    Carlos Sainz sent the throng of Tifosi into raptures as he denied Max Verstappen pole position for the Italian Grand Prix.

    Charles Leclerc made it a Ferrari 1-3 after briefly holding provisional pole, with George Russell quickest of the Mercedes in fourth ahead of Sergio Perez.

    Alex Albon continued his rich run of form with sixth fastest ahead of Oscar Piastri and Lewis Hamilton, who struggled during the session. 

    Former McLaren colleagues Lando Norris and Fernando Alonso rounded off the top 10 while row six will be an all-AlphaTauri affair with Yuki Tsunoda ahead of stand-in rookie teammate Liam Lawson.

    It was a bad day for Alpine as both Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon could only manage 17th and 18th respectively while Lance Stroll’s horror weekend continued as he qualified 20th and last on the grid.
