Verstappen makes it three wins in a row at the Italian track after an exciting race to the finish line. 

McLaren's Lando Norris was only 0.725s behind the Red Bull to take a much deserved second place aswell as Driver of the Day. 

His team-mate Oscar Piastri having settled in fourth position just missing out on a McLaren 2-3 podium which Charles Leclerc managed to steal which caused a great celebration for the Tifosi fans. 

Both Mercedes drivers of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell managed to finish within the points with Hamilton in sixth and Russell behind him in seventh after a late pit stop which gave him an extra point for fastest lap. 


Verstappen's team-mate Sergio Perez, reached P8 only gaining three places from his qualifying starting position of P11. 

Only one of the Aston Martins finished in the top 10 and that was Lance Stroll whilst his team-mate Fernando Alonso spent most of his race at the back of the grid ultimately retiring in the latter stages putting him in P19. 

Alex Albon was also forced to retire his Williams earlier in the race. 

The Haas duo of Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen finished in P11 and P12 with the RB of Daniel Ricciardo landing in behind them ahead of Alpine's Esteban Ocon in P14 and Kick Sauber's Zhou Guanyu in P15.

Pierre Gasly took P16 with Logan Sargeant's Williams in P17 and Valtteri Bottas in P18. 

All ten teams will now travel to the streets of Monaco to test their paces and see if anyone can beat Max Verstappen to first place.
