Charles Leclerc secured pole position for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
Why it matters
Leclerc's pole position is significant as it is Ferrari's first at Monza since 2010 and comes after a difficult season for the team. The penalties for other drivers also shake up the grid, potentially giving Leclerc and Russell an advantage in the race.
What the papers say
The Independent and The Guardian both report on Leclerc's pole position and the penalties for other drivers. Reuters provides a detailed analysis of the race, including Verstappen's fifth win in a row and 11th of the season, but does not mention Leclerc's pole position.
