Formula 1’s final race of the European season, the Italian Grand Prix from the historic and stunning Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, runs this morning on NBCSN and the NBC Sports app from 7 a.m. ET to kick off a busy day of motorsports, with IndyCar and NASCAR to follow.

F1 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX LIVE STREAM

Pre-race coverage runs for an hour from 7 a.m. ET through to 8 a.m. ET, with lights out at that point.

One of the more chaotic and random qualifying sessions in recent memory – and one which took more than three hours to complete with a rain delay – ended with Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton on the pole position, a record 69th for his career.

While Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were second and third on the road during qualifying in their two Red Bulls, grid penalties for them and several others have rapidly jumbled the grid and dropped them down the order (the qualifying times were below).

It instead sets up an abnormal and fascinating situation where Lance Stroll in his Williams now moves up to the front row, with Esteban Ocon in his Force India moving up to third.

Valtteri Bottas will start fourth in the second Mercedes with the pair of Ferraris, Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel, rolling off from fifth and sixth, respectively.

Heading into today’s race, Vettel leads Hamilton just by seven points, 220 to 213.

If Hamilton wins, he’ll be the first driver with back-to-back victories this season ahead of Round 13.

Marvin Musquin to miss entire 2020 Supercross season

On Friday, Marvin Musquin announced on Instagram he will miss the entire 2020 Supercross season with a knee injury.

The injury was sustained earlier this week in a practice crash at the KTM test track when he overjumped an obstacle and landed hard.

It’s “not the kind of news I’m excited to share with you guys,” Musquin wrote. “I was really happy to be back on the bike riding after being injured at the end of the Motocross season and starting to train for Supercross. Unfortunately, I had an incident at the KTM test track and ultimately over-jumped a jump that had a very big impact on my legs when I landed, injuring my left knee.”

I had it evaluated by several doctors and it was determined that my knee required surgery. It’s devastating news to me as I was really looking forward to racing Supercross, but I will take the time needed to recover properly with my main focus being to return when I am strong enough to win races.”

Last year, Musquin sustained another knee injury in November that threatened his 2019 Supercross season. He was able to ride in the Anaheim 1 event and finished in the top 10. Musquin improved throughout the season, winning two races and finishing third in the points after making a determined charge.

Musquin missed the 2011 and 2014 Supercross seasons with ACL injuries.

A big thanks to my team @ktmusa for supporting me in this tough time. I feel terribly sorry for them and all my sponsors for not being able to represent them on the track for the 2020 AMA SX season. But we will be back 👊🏼
