Valtteri Bottas wins F1 Italian GP sprint race but Max Verstappen takes pole

Formula One admitted it is considering once more adjusting the sprint feature of the weekend in an attempt to inject it with some excitement. Bottas has a grid penalty putting Max Verstappen, who was second, on pole for Sunday’s race. Sprint qualifying to decide the grid for Sunday’s grand prix is the race F1 is insisting is not a race. “Some of the drivers felt there should be more reward for the sprint and more jeopardy in the sprint,” he said. Starting from fourth he has already conceded the race will be damage limitation. He is very fast and he is starting from pole so it should be an easy win for him. All the drivers will move one place up the grid on their finishing positions after Bottas’s penalty.
