Really hate to say it but this pandemic certainly helped Ferrari from lot more humiliation without all those hardcore Tifosi to watch them struggle and pile down the order. can ferrari get it together for rest of the season i mean they won here the last time .

McLaren is back

With all the struggle and few GP2 tantrums on the radio, McLaren now matched their best qualifying result since hybrid era and Sainz equalled his career-best qualifying that too on the power-sensitive circuit like Monza the temple of speed that Renault power unit has some serious horses in it.

Redbull honda where were they?

They got out-qualified by a McLaren and pink Mercedes it still goes onto show that honda still has to do a lot more to catch others in terms of the power unit but that same power unit in the back of Alpha Tauri gave gasly a shot at Q3

Or the new ban on party mode might have hurt honda power unit more than any other engine manufacturer , or I might be wrong because in Monza it's all about tow and might not really give us a clear picture of the situation and we definitely want Honda to match Mercedes power unit or at least get closer so that max can challenge them for the rest of the season.

What about Renault

Daniel Ricciardo qualified 7th, that might not sound great especially coming back out of strong Belgium GP, but with time difference being p3 to p10 is just 800th of a second he's done enough where the tow is the name of the game the and ocon got out-qualified by Daniel and pissed off "The iceman" Kimi Raikkonen

And yeah that 40 years old kimi qualified ahead of one Ferrari

and....his 26 years old teammate, well that last-minute drama from the end of Q1 might have helped him but he had done enough in the previous lap to stay ahead of the rest without even completing his last hot lap of Q1

A sad day at Williams

Not just on the track but off track as well, as this is the last Grand Prix weekend for Williams family as they step down from the team's ownership after selling it Dorilton and on track it's the familiar 19th and 20th for Williams but not so familiar for George Russel as he has managed quite a few times to get out of Q3 this season and who might know he might have got out of Q3 as well if it wasn't for ocon and Kimi 's little on track shennanigans ,But he still keeps his 100% teammate qualifying record .Man.... latiffi might be paying them too much.
