F1 Italian GP: Sainz remains in front in final practice

In Saturday’s FP3 at Monza, teams had to contend with a different tyre allocation, receiving two fewer sets of tyres and being required to use all three compounds. This led to a strategic split between the top teams, focusing on soft tyre pace for Q3, and midfield teams emphasizing harder tyre running for Q1 and Q2. Lando Norris initially led on soft tyres, but Max Verstappen set a blistering time of 1m21.687s on softs, with Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton close behind. Fernando Alonso impressed on hard tyres with a lap time of 1m22.690s. Hamilton briefly took the lead, but Verstappen responded with a time of 1m20.998s on softs. Carlos Sainz delighted the home fans by going fastest with a time of 1m20.912s. Verstappen finished second, followed by Hamilton.
