Championship leader Sebastian Vettel resumed normal service in qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix yesterday, dominating all three sessions to secure his fourth pole position of the season and the fortieth of his career. Monza holds fond memories for the German driver, being the site of his first win back in 2008 when he quite literally made a splash in F1 by winning for Toro Rosso in torrential rain. However, with teammate Mark Webber looking to claim his first win of the season from second on the grid, and the ever-present threat of Fernando Alonso down in fifth, the German driver cannot afford to be complacent.
