06 September 2020The Italian GP in Monza sees Pierre Gasly's (Alpha Tauri) first F1 victory over Carlos Sainz's McLaren and Lance Stroll's Racing Point.

Out of the Ferraris.

For Mercedes fifth place for Bottas and seventh for Hamilton.

Race that starts in Handicap for Ferraris with Leclerc 13th and Vettel even 17th.

At the start Hamiton defends the pole, but Bottas is surprised by the McLarens with a Sainz that starts like a rocket and goes to second place and Lando Norris that puts on Verstappen's Red Bull and places himself behind the Spaniard.

Bottas seems to have some problems.

Vettel's Ferrari immediately gives signs of failure.

The German ends long at the first variant.

Seb reports brake problems and there is also a fire in the rear.

Perez (Racing Point) and Ricciardo (Renault) also overtake Bottas' Mercedes.

Vettel's last race in red at Monza sadly ends with the retirement after 6 laps.

Leclerc in the initial stages remains nailed to 13th place and tries the tire card, moving on to the hard ones.

 Then comes an unexpected turn: Magnussen has problems and finds himself in the middle of the track, the safety car enters and Hamilton enters the pit lane with Giovinazzi but ends up under investigation because entry would have been forbidden.

For him 10 seconds stop and go.

Immediately after the safety car came out on lap 23 everyone in the pits with Stroll (Racing Point) and Gasly (Alpha Tauri) who find themselves in the top position, then another twist: Leclerc is fourth thanks to everyone's stops, but he demands too much and on lap 25 he crashes into the parabolic guards and leaves the scene.

For Ferrari it looked like it was going to rain, but it hails!

Red both out.

 Red flag and another Grand Prix begins: after the new start, Gasly is the leader in front of Raikkonen's Alfa Romeo.

Hamilton serves the penalty and finds himself in last position.

The unexpected continues: on lap 31 the Red Bull of Verstappen breaks up and is forced to retire.

Raikkonen's Alfa does not have the necessary power to resist and the battle at the top becomes that between Sainz and Gasly.

If nothing else, we are witnessing an unprecedented duel, while Hamilton, anything but resigned, still manages to reach the points with seventh place.

Bottas with the other Mercedes closes fifth.

Last thrilling lap for the two leaders.

Sainz tries them all but Gasly makes it.

Small consolation, to see a stable from Faenza on the top step of the podium.
