Kimi Raikkonen made the quickest lap around Monza in his MP4-20 during qualifying, but won't be able to start on the pole after receiving a 10-place grid penalty for an engine change. Instead, his teammate Juan Pablo Montoya will start on the pole after qualifying second fastest.

In what is shaping up to be a tight race in both the driver standings and the team standings between Renault and McLaren, points leader Fernando Alonso from Renault gained a front-row starting position in the wake of Raikkonen's misfortune. His teammate Giancarlo Fisichella will start 8th after committing two errors on his lap.

Three other teams are in position to battle the dueling front row at Monza having qualified within one second of Montoya. BAR-Honda has both Jenson Button and Takuma Sato on the second row in third and fourth, respectively. Ferrari will start sixth and seventh with Michael Schumacher followed by Rubens Barrichello.

Splitting the Ferraris and BAR on the grid in fifth is Toyota's Jarno Trulli.
