Italian Grand Prix sprint qualifying LIVE: Bottas WINS sprint but Verstappen starts on pole – latest updates

LEWIS HAMILTON will be gunning to take top spot back from Max Verstappen as the F1 season heads to Italy this weekend. Follow all of the latest updates below… BOTTAS WINS THE SPRINT QUALIFYING RACE… Only this is not a race. Verstappen, who is second and gets two points in the championship, will start on pole in his place. The Mercedes man has dropped to fifth place after Norris and Ricciardo both leapfrogged him. The Mercedes man knew it was looming and now the FIA have confirmed that he will get a 10-place grid penalty for tomorrow’s race for taking a new engine. Hamilton tops the session ahead of the sprint race coming up at 4:40pm local time – 3:30pm in the UK. It would take some doing, but with the sprint qualifying tomorrow offering Verstappen a chance getting the better of Hamilton and Bottas before the race on Sunday, you certainly can’t rule him out.
