Monza quali

Lewis Hamilton may have made a stunning last minute grab at getting pole position for the Italian GP, but it looks like the two Brawns are best placed to win tomorrow’s race.

Both Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button – in fifth and sixth respectively – will be one stopping tomorrow, which should line them up nicely for a squabble to the chequered flag.

We won’t know for sure though until the fuel loads are published shortly, as there might be one of two surprises ahead of the Brawns.

Lewis certainly seems the most likely to be running a two-stop race, which means he’ll have to shoot off from the start and make the most of his KERS to crank out a huge lead.

Adrian Sutil got his Force India into second, and were it not for a small mistake in his lap, he’d probably have been ahead of Lewis, with FI’s second pole in two races.

Kimi Raikkonen’s sitting in third, showing some good pace for the Ferrari. If he’s fuelled heavy then he’ll have a great chance in the race tomorrow.

You’ve got to wonder if Giancarlo Fisichella, down in 14th in the sister Ferrari, is wondering if he made the right decision to leave Force India for the Scuderia.

What would you have done?
