Formula 1: Valtteri Bottas postponed - Max Verstappen starts from pole and wants the next victory

Hamilton, who starts from fourth place, wants to limit the damage, as he announced.

The Briton has already won five times at Monza, and if he did it again today it would be the 100th Grand Prix success of his career.

From a strategic point of view, the seven-time world champion will probably not be able to rely on his colleague Valtteri Bottas.

Parts of the car of the Mercedes driver, who would actually have started from pole, had been changed without permission, which is why the Finn was placed in last place.

Ferrari's Charles Leclerc starts from fifth place in the Italian race, but whether Monegasse can repeat its 2019 victory is unlikely given its mediocre car.

His Spanish teammate Carlos Sainz jr.

starts from position six.

The majority of the approximately 28,000 fans will cheer for the Scuderia.

The 007 logo is now on the racing car and the glass front of the motorhome, and the new agent strip with Daniel Craig celebrates its premiere at the end of September.

Whether Vettel and Stroll master their sporting mission will be shown at the race on Sunday.
