Italian Grand Prix: Race start time UK, starting grid and how can I watch F1 on TV today?

Charles Leclerc ensured Ferrari will be on pole position for the Italian Grand Prix to the delight of the Monza crowd.

Leclerc produced a sensational final run at the Temple of Speed to thrill the Tifosi, with Max Verstappen having to settle for second.

Verstappen lines up in seventh though, with the world champion among nine of 20 drivers punished for exceeding their number of allocated engine parts.

Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton qualified third, fourth and fifth respectively, but the trio also face grid sanctions. Hamilton will start from the back after taking on his fourth engine of the season - one more than he is allowed.

George Russell finished sixth but takes advantage of those above being penalised to join Leclerc on the front row. Lando Norris qualified seventh will start third in his McLaren once the grid penalties are applied.

Hamilton’s yellow 44 on the side of his Mercedes has been turned to black in honour of the Queen, with a plethora of tributes being paid up and down the paddock to the long-serving monarch.

A one-minute silence was staged ahead of practice on Friday, with another to follow on the grid in the moments before Sunday’s race. The Italian president, Sergio Mattarella, will be present for the formalities.
