Sutil misses pole by whisker

Monza:

Adrian Sutil nearly fetched Force India's second successive pole position before McLaren's Lewis Hamilton gatecrashed into his party in the adrenalin-pumped qualifying sessions for tomorrow's Italian Grand Prix today. Sutil, who had topped the timesheet in two of the three practice sessions, made a slight error in his final flyer through the first Lesmo to settle for the second place on tomorrow's starting grid while Hamilton grabbed the pole. Sutil's new Italian teammate Vitantonio Liuzzi dazzled in his Force India F1 debut and will start seventh on the grid tomorrow. For a moment, it seemed Force India would be celebrating their second pole position when Sutil lapped the circuit in 1m 24.261s before Hamilton came from behind to run away with the pole.
