In the top-10 shootout, Hamilton set the benchmark on the first run at 1m19.068s, 0.053s faster than Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. Bottas improved to briefly grab provisional pole, but Hamilton hit back with 1m18.887s, which extended his advantage to 0.069s.

McLaren’s Carlos Sainz qualified third, eight tenths off pole, just 0.03s clear of Sergio Perez (Racing Point). Red Bull’s Max Verstappen could only manage fifth, ahead of Lando Norris (McLaren), Daniel Ricciardo (Renault), Lance Stroll (Racing Point), Red Bull’s Alex Albon (who lost his first lap due to track limits) and Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri).

In Qualifying 2, Bottas was quickest with a lap of 1m18.952s, a tenth and a half up on Hamilton and 0.75s clear of Sainz.

Knocked out at this point were Daniil Kvyat (AlphaTauri), Esteban Ocon (Renault), Charles Leclerc (Ferrari), Kimi Raikkonen (Alfa Romeo) and Kevin Magnussen (Haas, who ran through the gravel at Lesmo 2). Ricciardo went off at the Roggia chicane and was forced to bail out of his second lap, but just squeaked through with his first effort.

In Qualifying 1, Hamilton topped the session with a lap of 1m19.539s, ahead of Bottas and Perez.

As expected, the final seconds of Q1 were chaotic as cars vied to get a slipstream, and the final laps looked more like a race than qualifying.

Falling at the first hurdle were Romain Grosjean (whose Haas understeered way too wide at Parabolica), Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel (who got stuck behind a Williams and blamed the Alfas for causing such “a big mess”), Antonio Giovinazzi and the Williamses of George Russell and Nicholas Latifi.

The difference between Mercedes’ stumble and the fall of F1 giants

OPINION: Mercedes endured its worst season of the hybrid Formula 1 era, but was mercifully spared its first winless campaign in over a decade late on. It has owned up to the mistakes it made which led to its troubled W13. And while its task to return to title-challenging contention is not small, its 2022 season seems more like a blip than the beginning of a downward spiral.

How Red Bull's dynamic leader Mateschitz shaped its F1 philosophy

The death of Dietrich Mateschitz last month has not only deprived Red Bull of its visionary founder, it has shorn Formula 1 of one of its most influential benefactors. Mateschitz himself was famously media-shy, preferring to let the brand do the talking on his behalf. And, while it’s now normal to speak of Red Bull F1 titles and champions made, Mateschitz never assumed it would be easy or even possible – as ANTHONY ROWLINSON discovered during this previously unpublished interview from 2006…
