The rough Python equivalent would be

import subprocess
[ l.partition(' ')[0]      # or l[:7], if you want to copy it verbatim
  for l in subprocess.check_output(['lspci']).splitlines()
  if 'Q' in l and isp_str1 in l and isp_str2 in l

You can also just paste the whole pipeline with the shell=True
parameter. That's not recommended though, and it's hard to correctly
quote strings.
