Formula 1 is testing the new weekend format at the Italian Grand Prix. And so, on Friday, we were dealing with the traditional qualifier which sets the starting order for the qualifier race. This, in turn, set the starting fields for Sunday’s F1 race for us.
Robert Kubica was 19th in qualifying, and in Saturday’s sprint he managed to rise to a higher position. This is a consequence of the accident of Pierre Gasly, who went off the track after a puncture.
On Sunday, Kubica will finally place herself on the 17th starting grid. Saturday’s qualifying race winner – Valtteri Bottas – received an engine replacement penalty. However, given Mercedes’ impressive pace in the Italian Grand Prix, the Finn won’t need much time to overtake Krakowian.

After Sprint’s adventure on Saturday, Gasly was starting the F1 Italian GP from 19th place. However, Honda announced that it decided to install a completely new engine and power unit equipment on the Alpha Tauri. In this case, Gasly is forced to launch from the pit lane.
Ahead of the Italian Grand Prix, it was speculated that Lewis Hamilton will also get a new engine, which will force the 36-year-old to start from the bottom of the field. However, rumors about this were interrupted by Toto Wolff. – At the moment, we have a comfortable situation with the existing units. The Mercedes chief at Sky Sports said the decision to use an additional engine could be taken at any time, but at the moment we do not consider it necessary.
