Notes

  • * Fernando Alonso originally qualified with a time of 1:21.829 in Q3, but had his three fastest Q3 times deleted, effectively demoting him from fifth to tenth, after Monza stewards controversially penalized him, judging he had impeding Ferrari's Felipe Massa during qualifying in spite of Massa being some distance behind Alonso.[2]
