F1 Italian GP qualifying – Start time, how to watch & more
On his 29th birthday, Sainz was the fastest in the second practice session, narrowly beating Norris by 0.019s. The session was eventful, with two red flags caused by Stroll’s Aston Martin stopping due to a suspected fuel system issue and Perez crashing at the Parabolica. Despite the crash, Perez considered it his best Friday in a while, aiming to regain confidence and momentum in his Red Bull. In the qualifying session, Felipe Massa agreed to miss the Italian GP due to his ongoing legal process regarding his 2008 F1 world title claims. In the UK, Formula 1 is broadcast live on Sky Sports, except for the British GP, which is shown on Sky Sports and Channel 4. Highlights are available on Channel 4’s catch-up services. Live radio coverage for the 2023 F1 season is accessible on BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC 5 Live Sports Extra, and the BBC Sport website. Saturday’s qualifying is expected to have sunny and warm conditions with no chance of rain, starting at 28 degrees Celsius at Monza.
