(cafetheology.org) – The Grand Prix of Italy in Monza is a classic in the Formula 1 calendar and a weekend at the end of the race weekend. Not so this weekend. The Saturday also presented itself rainy. After the wet third free practice, rainy conditions also prevailed during the days. The qualifying was just a few minutes in progress, as the race had already had the red flags beaten – Romain Grosjean (Haas) had the right on the start-finish line for aquaplaning Lost control of his car and cursed: "We should not have been sent to the track." With the rear, the Frenchman crashed into the crash barriers and had to get out of the demolished car. The safety car was sent around the course, the re-start of the time course was postponed time and again because the conditions had not improved sufficiently. The brave fans on the spot were slowly impatient, after a three-and-a-half hour the first whistles were given, as the rain had subsided. But the circuit, which also keeps the rain radar in view, did not release the track. And promptly it was raining a few minutes later. Particularly problematic: the new asphalt on the start-finish straight. Again and again the spectators were consoled, until finally the announcement that the qualifying was restarted at 16:40 o'clock at 16:40 o'clock. The conditions were visibly better than at the beginning of the time, this also confirmed Verstappen via radio. Vettel and Alonso were the first drivers to switch to Intermediates. At the end of the first round, the slowest five drivers were Jolyon Palmer (Renault), Kevin Magnussen (Haas), Marcus Ericsson (Sauber), Pascal Wehrlein (Sauber) and Romain Grosjean (Haas) after his accident was again predicted stronger rain – some drivers such as Verstappen, Ocon and Sainz went on the course with rain tires, while the other riders at the top put on intermediates. At the end of the race, all of them were intercepted. After the second part, the following drivers had to step out of position eleven: Sergio Perez, Nico Hülkenberg, Fernando Alonso, Daniil Kwjat ) and Carlos Sainz (Toro Rosso). At the beginning of the third part, the rain started to pick up again. All riders set on rain tires, except for Hamilton, Bottas and Vettel – a mistake. In the end, Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) secured pole position with a sensational time of 1: 35.554 minutes before Max Verstappen (Red Bull, +1.148) and his team colleague Daniel Ricciardo, who was 1.287 seconds apart. For both Red Bulls, however, it is still to the rear because of criminal offenses. Therefore, the only 18-year-old Lance Stroll (Williams) can look forward to the second starting place, who finished fourth in the qualifying with 1.478 seconds. This was followed by Esteban Ocon (Force India (+2.165), Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes, +2.279), Kimi Raikkonen (Ferrari +2.433), Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari +2.510), Felipe Massa (Williams, +2.697) and Stoffel Vandoorne (McLaren; + 3,603). A detailed report will follow shortly
