'I was just having fun' - rookie Stroll makes Monza front row

F1 officials at Monza decided to suspend qualifying due to heavy rain on the Italian track

Williams has regularly suffered with understeer at low speed, which in turn has hurt it in the rain and on twisty circuits such as Monaco and the Hungaroring.

FIA race director Charlie Whiting summed it up: "At the moment it is too bad, so we'll delay the start indefinitely".

Combined, the performance advantage and minimal degradation of the super-soft is likely to make that compound the one to be on for most of the race, but - being a low working range tyre - high temperatures will see it more susceptible to degradation than the soft.

"I always try to use my head in the best way possible for my own race - whether it is Lewis or anyone else".

"The weather seems to be swirling around a lot and we can't get a clear picture", he said. "It will be very interesting to study that in detail".

After the wet and wild conditions of Saturday's F1 running, Ted rounds up the need-to-know stories from a day in which two significant records were broken.

Audi Q7 petrol 40TFSI launched in India at Rs 67.76 lakhs
The motor comes paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels via Audi's famed Quattro AWD system. The all-wheel drive petrol SUV has an ARAI rated fuel efficiency figure of 11.68 km/l and comes with a 75 litre fuel tank.

"We increase but very little so not really a big compromise". It's very hard to get the right explanation. "When we chose to go - after that, the conditions got a little bit worse".

The Canadian finished an excellent fourth fastest in his first true fully-wet session in Formula 1, with the teenager showing some great speed and performance throughout in Italy, and with grid penalties to both Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo ahead of him, he moves up to second place alongside Lewis Hamilton.

Massa praised Stroll's lap, conceding he simply did not have the pace to beat his team-mate in those conditions.

The Brazilian was one of only seven drivers to venture out and clock a lap time.

Stroll becomes the youngest-ever front-row starter in Sunday's race, beating Verstappen by 23 days from last year's Belgian Grand Prix. How impressive was fellow front-row qualifier Lance Stroll? I couldn't put a lap time together in Q3 because of some traffic - that didn't help me to put the flawless lap - but even with a ideal lap I would only be 0.5s quicker than I was, but not as fast as Lance's lap time. Whether I'm starting 10th, fifth or wherever, you just focus on your job and see where you end up after the first corner.
