Charles Leclerc wins the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix – after his victory in Belgium last week – ahead of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton who take second and third places in this Grand Prix. Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hülkenberg realize a good performance, taking fourth and fifth places. Sebastian Vettel finished thirteenth in the Italian Grand Prix after a mistake in the race and a penalty.

Pierre Gasly finished with his Toro Rosso in eleventh place, after starting from the back of the grid: “From P17 onwards, we knew we had a tough race ahead of us. The day was quite hectic, we had a very good start and we finished the first laps in 13th position. Things were going pretty well until Stroll came off the track as I was passing, so I had to avoid him when I entered the gravel and lose two positions and a lot of time. It cost us at the end of the race, as we only finished three seconds behind P9. It wasn’t ideal, but I think we had a good performance all weekend and we had the pace to finish in the points from the bottom of the grid. I look forward to a flawless weekend in Singapore to make the most of it.

Romain Grosjean took 16th place in this Grand Prix, a difficult weekend for the Frenchman: “It was very complicated. I was hit from behind in the first corner. I tried to push to get back, then I spun Ascari. There was a problem with the car today. We have to analyze everything.”

Renault F1 Team has a superb weekend with a fourth place for Daniel Ricciardo and a fifth place for Nico Hülkenberg, the best result of Renault F1 Team since his return to Formula 1 as Cyril Abiteboul specified: “Today’s result is not only the best overall result of the team since his return to Formula 1, but a new demonstration after Montreal and Spa of the team’s obvious progress, especially on the side of powertrains that were so openly criticised in the past. This is proof that everything is going well with a competitive package. It is also an invitation to repeat this type of emotion in a season that has not been easy. Our drivers have shown what they can do with a competitive car. They were remarkable throughout the race, including in tricky situations. This result is good for the team, because we also know that circuits where we will be less competitive are still to come this year, but we are happy to take advantage of them for the time being.”

Charles Leclerc with his Ferrari won his second Formula 1 Grand Prix in front of the Tifosi: “There are no words to describe the emotions I felt during the race, after the race or on the podium. It was ten times stronger than anything I’ve known in my career. It was very special. When I get to a race weekend, I don’t usually think about winning, I just try to do the best job possible and tell myself that the results will come. But to be honest, given all the support from our Tifosi here in Monza this weekend, the only thing I could think of was winning and that’s what we did, so I’m very happy. It was an exciting race. The first stint was well controlled, but the second was a little less strong on my side, as I had to concentrate a lot on the car behind me because the gap was closing. It was very difficult and I had a lot of pressure on myself. I would like to thank the entire team for their hard work. Nothing would be possible without them. It was a shame for Seb, who really had the potential to be on the podium with me. For the next races, we have to stay focused, motivated and we hope that the results will follow.”
