ALONSO ’NHAMIN MONZA BONANZA By Adam CAINE at Monza FERNANDO ALONSO and Lewis Hamilton teamed up to give Ferrari a slap in their own backyard. Double world champion Alonso took pole at the Italian Grand Prix with Brit sensation Hamilton joining him on the front row for a McLaren one-two. It was a bitter blow for championship rivals Ferrari at their home race. Surprise Alonso clocked a fastest lap of one minute 21.997 seconds, just 0.037sec ahead of Hamilton. Ferrari's Felipe Massa was third with German Nick Heidfeld a surprise fourth in his BMW Sauber. Spaniard Alonso, whose last pole was in Monaco back in May, said: “I’ve had many seconds this year and finally a pole. The car is extremely quick here and hopefully we can do the real job and finish ahead of everybody.” Hamilton, 22 - who leads Alonso by five points with five races to go - said: “It was a good battle out there. “It’s the fifth time we have the front row locked out. Hopefully we can repeat that in the race.” Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen will start from fifth after escaping unhurt from a 150mph crash in practice. ITALY GP GRID 1. F Alonso 2. L Hamilton 3. F Massa 4.

UP FER IT: Fernando Alonso (centre) celebrates pole position with Lewis Hamilton (right) and Felipe Massa EXCLUSIVE Randy Moss TROUBLED New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss insists he will be on his best behaviour this season, which starts tonight. When with Minnesota Vikings and Oakland Raiders, Moss got in trouble for squirting a referee with water, walking off before the end of a loss while his teammates were still on the pitch, mooning opposing fans and GRIDIRON by NEIL REYNOLDS admitting he didn’t try his best in some games. His off-season move to the Patriots stunned the NFL. The Patriots are led by no-nonsense head coach Bill Belichick, and their team of model pros has won three Super Bowls in the past six years. Moss, seen as the most electrifying receiver in the game, has made a good impression on his new team-mates in pre-season. Ahead of tonight’s AFC East meeting with the New York Jets he said: ‘‘I’m enthusiastic about my new team. I want to bring back the old Randy Moss – making plays and reeling in catches.’’ The Patriots – losers at the Super Bowl semi-final stage last season – are the favourites this season after boosting their squad with Moss, fellow wide receivers Donte Stallworth and Wes Welker, and outstanding linebacker Adalius Thomas, who boasts a sprinter’s speed despite weighing in at more than 18 stones. Today, from 6pm on Sky Sports 2: NY Jets v New England Patriots; San Diego Chargers v Chicago Bears; Dallas Cowboys v NY Giants.
