Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc rounds the Ascari Chicane in FP1 at Monza.

The first F1 results of the Italian Grand Prix weekend are in, with FP1 having taken place at Monza on Friday afternoon.

In what has felt like a rarity this season, it was a dry session at the Temple of Speed, allowing the drivers to take in their planned running at Formula 1’s fastest circuit in their first hour of practice.

There was just the one replacement rookie on show in FP1, as is mandated in F1 rules for each team, with last year’s F2 champion Felipe Drugovich behind the wheel at Aston Martin, replacing Lance Stroll.

Liam Lawson continues his replacement duties at AlphaTauri for the injured Daniel Ricciardo, who is beginning his recovery following surgery on the broken metacarpal he suffered last Friday at Zandvoort.

The alternative tyre allocation used in Hungary in July is also in play at Monza for the drivers to navigate, with 11 sets of tyres per driver instead of 13 – forcing every team to be slightly more frugal this weekend.

In terms of lap times, Max Verstappen edged clear of Carlos Sainz for Ferrari by 0.046s in FP1, with their team-mates Sergio Perez and Charles Leclerc third and fourth respectively, and George Russell rounding out the top five.
