Lewis and Adrian

He only just managed it but Lewis Hamilton will start the Italian Grand Prix on pole position.  He was pushed hard by an outstanding performance by Force India’s Adrien Sutil of all people.

Behind them are the two Finns, Kimi Rakkonein of Ferrari and Heikke Kovelienen, another McLaren.  The third row is the entire Brawn team, Jenson and Rubens.  There is no love lost between these two this season and they will both fight to the bitter end.

This race will also see the debut of Vitantonio Luizzi who replaces Giancarlo Fisichella at Force India.

So the results in full are as follows:
