After a lengthy break, F2 action is back on our screens as the 22-man field tackles the iconic 'Temple of Speed' in Italy.

Piastri reigned supreme in qualifying, with his 1m32.199s enough to take his second pole position of the season. 

The Australian led the way after the first runs but he found enough on his final run to reclaim top spot, but also the four additional championship points. 

Jehan Daruvala qualified an excellent second for Carlin, consistently quick in the opening part of the lap. 

Guanyu Zhou was third and he remains Piastri's nearest rival for the title this year. 

Zhou has been heavily linked with a promotion to F1 alongside Valtteri Bottas at Alfa Romeo for 2022, so he will be needing a strong weekend at Monza.

Liam Lawson was the lead Hitech Grand Prix driver in fourth, while Felipe Drugovich made it two UNI-Virtuosi cars in the top five.

Ralph Boschung was only sixth for Campos, having been second after the first qualifying runs.

Theo Pourchaire, Dan Ticktum, Juri Vips and David Beckmann rounded out the top 10.

It was Beckmann's first outing for Campos, having been replaced by Charouz due to financial reasons.

Robert Shwartzman struggled for pace throughout qualifying with the Ferrari junior set to start from 12th after Jake Hughes had his lap deleted, having qualified 11th initially.
