Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc won pole for the Italian Grand Prix after topping time in qualifying at Monza on Saturday. Leclerc finished 0.145 seconds ahead of championship leader Max Verstappen after posting his fastest lap on his final shot around the Temple of Speed.

Defending champion Verstappen had already been awarded a five-place grid penalty for Sunday’s race.

George Russell, who posted the sixth-fastest time in qualifying for Mercedes, would start with Leclerc in the front row due to grid penalties to Carlos Sainz, Sergio Pérez and Lewis Hamilton.
