Lewis Hamilton has admitted to driving "like an idiot" as Sebastian Vettel dominated qualifying for the Italian Grand Prix to claim the 40th pole position of his Formula One career.

After a run of four successive poles, Hamilton blew his qualifying in the second session at Monza and will start a miserable 12th in his Mercedes.

At the head of the field will be reigning three-times world champion Vettel, and in the ideal scenario as he has Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber alongside him on the front row for company.
