Lewis Hamilton bounces back from narrowly missing out on pole for the Sprint Race by setting the pace in final practice for the Italian Grand Prix from Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen

Lewis Hamilton topped the time charts in final practice for the Italian Grand Prix. The world champion, who will start Saturday’s sprint race at Monza from second, finished 0.222 seconds clear of Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas. Max Verstappen, who qualified third, finished third, half a second down on Hamilton with the power-hungry Temple of Speed playing to Mercedes’ strengths. Points are awarded to the top-three finishers of the sprint event, while the final result also determines the grid for Sunday’s Grand Prix. Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari crew will face a race against time to repair his machine after the Spaniard crashed out of final practice.
