    Gasly aproveita Safety Car e circunstâncias excepcionais para vencer GP da Itália

    Em Monza, o roteiro habitual seria uma vitória de Hamilton ou Bottas, mas não foi isso que aconteceu, já que o imponderável e circunstancias especial acabaram por embolar a corrida na metade. Isso deu a chance para Pierre Gasly da Alpha Tauri vencer o GP da Itália e colocar a França no lugar mais alto do pódio desde do GP da França de 1996, quando Olivier Panis venceu o GP de Mônaco com a Ligier-Mugen Honda.


    Hamilton largou bem e manteve a ponta, Bottas não largou bem e além de perder posição para Sainz jr. acabou perdendo só na primeira volta posições para Norris, Perez e Ricciardo, caindo ara a 6ªposição. Verstappen também não foi bem, caindo da 5ªpara a 7ªposição, sofrendo para manter a posição sobre Lance Stroll.
    A vida de Hamilton acabou sendo bem facilitada, na frente, o inglês vinha abrindo muito sobre Carlos Sainz jr., abrindo demais do piloto espanhol. Lá atrás, Vettel tem problemas de freios e passa reto na 7ªvolta. Um final de semana desastroso para o piloto alemão, que foi para os boxes para abandonar a corrida.


    Alexander Albon não estava tendo uma boa corrida, na largada ele vazou a chicane e voltas depois, fecha a porta de Magnussen. Com isso, ele foi punido em 5 segundos por não dar espaço a um adversário, ele vinha nas últimas posições, tentando se recuperar na corrida.
    Lá na frente, Perez começa a 9ªvolta na pressão em cima de Lando Norris, que vinha segurando não só o mexicano como também de Daniel Ricciardo, Valtteri Bottas e Max Verstappen. Para o finlandês, a corrida estava ruim, não conseguia usar o vácuo para passar Ricciardo. Na verdade, Bottas vinha poupando pneu para prolongar a vida deles para tentar ganhar posições na tática, mas tinha Verstappen no seu encalço.


    Na 12ªvolta, Hamilton abriu 9 segundos sobre Sainz e quase 13 segundos a frente de Norris. A se destacar duas coisas, Kvyat em 11ª acompanhando muito bem o ritmo de corrida de Gasly com os pneus duros e Raikkonen em uma ótima 12ªposição.


    Albon passou Leclerc que passou a sofrer pressão de Antonio Giovinazzi. Para não tomar a vergonha de ser superado pelo piloto da Alfa Romeo, o monegasco foi para os boxes na entrada da 18ªvolta. A partir dai começou a rodada de paradas nos boxes. Na volta 20ª Gasly vai para a sua parada nos boxes (A partir dai começa a se construir a vitória do piloto Francês). Ao mesmo tempo que Kevin Magnussen para na área de escape da parte externa da parabólica. Não era um lugar tão complicado para tirar o carro do local de perigo. Porém, o safety car entra na pista e a corrida tomaria outro rumo.


    Isso por que Lewis Hamilton foi para os boxes com eles fechados, isso acabaria por mudara história da corrida. Com os boxes abertos na volta 22, todo mundo vai para os boxes, Sainz jr. que era o líder foi o primeiro seguido de Norris, que acabou freando demais e segurando a turma toda para que ele pudesse para sem perder muito tempo nos boxes. A equipe Mercedes trabalhou muito bem com Bottas que ganhou a posição de Ricciardo e de Perez (Que contou com uma para ruim da sua equipe para o carro dele) melhorando um pouco a situação para o piloto Finlandês.


    Hamilton era o líder com Stroll, Gasly, Giovinazzi, Raikkonen, Leclerc e Latifi que ficaram na pista. Stroll não tinha feito a parada. Enquanto isso, Hamilton e Giovinazzi estavam sendo investigados por terem parado com os boxes fechados.
    Relargada na 24ªVolta, Leclerc foi agressivo e passou os dois pilotos da Alfa Romeo, porém, no final da volta. O piloto da Ferrari acabou errando e indo diretamente para o muro. A pancada foi muito forte, tanto é que foi acionada a bandeira vermelha, para consertarem o muro de proteção. Foi nesse momento que Giovinazzi e Hamilton acabaram punidos com um stop in go de 10 segundos nos boxes.


    Com Stroll em segundo e colocando pneus novos, ele passaria a ser o favorito a vitória, com Gasly na sua cola em segundo.
    Após uns 30 minutos foi determinada que a parada seria um novo procedimento de largada. Com Hamilton, Stroll, Gasly, Raikkonen, Giovinazzi, Sainz jr., Norris, Bottas, Latifi, Ricciardo, Verstappen e os demais. Na relargada, Gasly foi muito bem, superando Stroll e passando a ser o segundo colocado. Stroll acabou vazando a 2ªchicane e se perdeu, ficando atrás do Sainz jr. e com muita dificuldade conseguiu ficar a frente de Norris.


    Com a parada de Hamilton (pagando a punição) a liderança passou a ser de Pierre Gasly, que não tinha uma ameaça séria já que Kimi Raikkonen assumiu a segunda posição. Sainz jr. vinha na terceira posição, seguido de Stroll, Bottas, Ricciardo, Ocon e Kvyat. Giovinazzi foi cumprir sua punição. Verstappen com problemas abandonou na 31ªVolta. Não foi o dia nem de Hamilton, nem de Bottas e muito menos de Verstappen em Monza.
    Sainz jr. vendo que poderia levar a Mclaren a uma vitória que não vinha desde do GP do Brasil de 2012 foi para cima de Raikkonen, colocou por fora e fez a ultrapassagem assumindo a segunda posição. Na volta seguinte, foi a vez de Stroll superar o piloto da Alfa Romeo para levar a 3ªposição.


    Infelizmente para o homem de gelo, ele seria escalado pelo pelotão, sendo superado por Norris, Bottas e Ricciardo caindo para a 7ªposição. Enquanto isso, Hamilton teve muita dificuldade para superar Alexander Albon, isso por causa da configuração de asa, que fazia a Mercedes ser lenta de reta. Apenas na 41ªvolta, Lewis conseguiu superar Albon para ganhar a 14ªposição. A partir dai, a reação do líder do campeonato emplacou.
    Hamilton passou Rusell e Grosjean em 2 voltas, ganhando a 12ªposição. Com 10 voltas para terminar a corrida, dava perfeitamente para completar a prova dentro da zona de pontuação. Enquanto isso, Ocon na 43ªVolta, depois Kvyat na 44ªvolta superam Raikkonen, que vinha na 9ªposição, tentando ficar na zona de pontuação, mas iria ser difícil.


    A 8 Voltas do final, Sainz jr. conseguiu tirar um pouco da vantagem que Gasly tinha, mas o piloto da Alpha Tauri manteve uma distância segura. Já Valtteri Bottas tentou chegar Lando Norris, tentando ganhar mais uma posição, numa corrida que parecia estar bem pior do que estava.
    Hamilton já tinha superado Latifi e agora estava a uma posição da zona de pontuação. Na volta 46, Raikkonen que foi superado por Perez acabou superado por Hamilton e saiu da zona de pontuação. Hamilton tinha a melhor volta da corrida e ainda superou Perez, Kvyat e no final da corrida, superou Ocon, passando para a 7ªposição.


    Ao final da prova, Sainz jr. tenta chegar em cima de Gasly. Na última volta, o espanhol chegou no piloto da Alpha Tauri, mas não tinha mais tempo para impedir a primeira vitória do piloto francês na Formula 1. Foi a primeira vitória de um francês na categoria desde do GP de Mônaco de 1996, quando Olivier Panis de Ligier conquistou a vitória. Uma grande corrida do piloto que aproveitou a chance e as circunstâncias especiais para conquista à vitória, Um dia de festa para os integrantes da Alpha Tauri.


    Carlos Sainz jr. bateu na trave para a sua primeira vitória, mas obteve seu melhor final de semana da carreira, chegando na segunda posição e ajudando a consolidar a Mclaren na terceira posição no Mundial de Construtores. Lance Stroll acabou completando o pódio, mas a sua largada não muito boa e o erro na 2ªchicane acabou por tirar a chance de vencer a corrida.


    Lando Norris ficou na frente de Valtteri Bottas e conquistou o 4ºlugar, um pouco ofuscado pela grande atuação de Sainz jr. no final de semana. Já o piloto da Mercedes teve sua pior corrida da temporada, deu tudo errado na pista, mas as circunstâncias que aconteceram na prova acabaram por salvar uma 5ªposição. Seguido de Daniel Ricciardo, a Renault ficou um pouco abaixo do que poderia ter feito.


    Lewis Hamilton que em circunstâncias normais, venceria com sobras, mas com o que aconteceu hoje acabou sendo jogado para a última posição, acabou liquidando suas chances de vencer pela 90ªvez na Formula 1 em Monza. Porém, Lewis conseguiu reagir, fez a volta mais rápida da prova e ainda conseguiu ficar na 7ªposição. Uma grande corrida de recuperação para o líder do campeonato.


    Esteban Ocon ficou em 8ºlugar, ajudando um pouco mais a Renault na disputa do Mundial de Construtores. Daniil Kvyat que tinha uma bela tática de corrida, em muito bom ritmo de corrida com os compostos duros não teve a mesma sorte de Gasly, acabou prejudicado pelo Safety Car, mas conseguiu recuperar e acabou na 9ªposição.
    Se o russo terminou a corrida em saldo positivo, Sergio Perez teve uma corrida para esquecer, prejudicado pelo trabalho da Racing Point, ficou longe demais da briga pela vitória e não foi além da 10ªposição. Fechando a zona de pontuação.


    Nicholas Latifi por muito pouco não levou a Williams a zona de pontuação pela segunda vez seguida, ficou em 11ºlugar, a frente de Romain Grosjean da Haas. Por incrível que pareça, foi o melhor resultado de um motor Ferrari hoje. Lamentável o estágio que se encontra os propulsores italianos.


    Kimi Raikkonen chegou a ficar em 2ºlugar, mas com um carro ruim e um motor ruim, nada poderia ter feito para se segurar pelo menos na zona de pontuação e ficou apenas em 13º. George Russell terminou em 14º, apesar de ofuscado por Lafiti acabou ficando a frente de Alexander Albon, O resultado do tailandês foi trágico como a sua corrida. Muito fraco com o carro que tem. Antonio Giovinazzi ficou muito longe de qualquer briga, ficando na 16ªposição.


    Semana que vem, a Formula 1 vai pela primeira vez a Mugello para o GP da Toscana, provável que a corrida seja normal, mas depois de hoje, nunca se sabe o que pode acontecer. Depois da vitória de Pierre Gasly hoje, nada é certo na categoria até que se cruze a linha de chegada.

    Sip. Lo vi repetido en la TPA. Carlos espera el saludo de Lewis, pero Lewis se fue.
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    En la resalida tras la bandera roja, KR sólo disponía de neumático blando "nuevo". Durante la carrera extrañaba esa elección, pero no tenía otra opción.

    Impresiones de los equipos después de la carrera:

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Mercedes

    Congratulations to Scuderia Alpha Tauri and Pierre Gasly on an unexpected but well-deserved win.


    Valtteri dropped to sixth on the opening lap after a difficult start and multiple contacts; he finished P5 after struggling with the car handling through the race.


    Lewis led the early stages but dropped to last place after serving a 10-second stop/go penalty for entering the pit lane when it was closed, eventually fighting his way back to P7.


    Lewis set the fastest lap of the race, which is his 50th in F1.


    Lewis (164 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 47 points from Valtteri (117 points). The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team (281 points) leads Red Bull Racing (158 points) by 123 points in the Constructors' Championship.


    Valtteri Bottas
    :
    That was a difficult day out there. The start was pretty poor and on the first lap, I had a bit of contact and thought I had a puncture, but it turned out I didn't. I had massive understeer and the car was pulling to one side. It recovered but then I was suffering some overheating issues with the engine running in traffic, so there wasn't much I could do. Every time I got close to another car, I had to back off due to the overheating or look for clean air on the straights, which meant I couldn't get the tow. It felt a bit better after the red flag and towards the end of the race, but there's lots of things for us to review and understand. We'll debrief and then move onto Mugello. We should have a good car there but it's going to be tough to overtake, so Qualifying will be crucial.


    Lewis Hamilton
    :
    Huge congratulations to Pierre, it's a fantastic result for him and it's great to see such a young podium. Obviously, I've seen what Pierre's been through, being dropped from a top team and then beating that top team today. It's fantastic to see him recover and see him grow, so I'm very happy for him. My race wasn't meant to be. I didn't see the boards saying the pit lane was closed because I was following the safety car delta on my dash, so I take responsibility for that and it's something that we'll investigate and learn from. That stop/go pit stop was long, and I had 26 seconds to catch up to the next car. I was giving it absolutely everything. I honestly didn't expect to get seventh and fastest lap at that point in the race. I took a lot of life out of the tyres closing the gap and there was a lot of turbulence from the other cars, which made it hard to follow them. But once I caught up to everybody, it was a fun battle and I still got some good points. I'll definitely take the result and am grateful for it. We'll move onto the next one and I look forward to it.


    Toto Wolff:
    This is a loss for Mercedes and the big teams, but it's a victory for the sport. That was great entertainment today and it was fantastic to see the young guys fighting out front. Congratulations to Pierre and Alpha Tauri, they deserved the win. It was obviously a disappointing race for us. With Lewis and the penalty, it was a weird sequence of events. We should have spotted earlier that the pit lane was closed, by the time that we did, the car was entering the pit lane. It's a tough result to take but we must take it on the chin. The recovery drive that Lewis did was very good. It is difficult to overtake in Monza, particularly now with the new Technical Directive on engine modes, so with that in mind, to recover to P7 was very strong. On Valtteri's side, we need to see what happened with the car, as it wasn't turning well into the right-handers and that was making it hard for him to make progress. We were also marginal on cooling, which made things even tougher for him out there. We'll take all the learnings we can from this weekend and come back fighting in Mugello.


    Andrew Shovlin:
    Well done to Pierre on his first win and Alpha Tauri on an amazing result at their home race! The top three finishers and their teams all did a great job celebrating the podium and it's a good reminder to us to never take the wins for granted. We could have handled the race better, with Lewis we got caught with the pitlane closing as we were on the way in. That's something we need to be sharper with in future, as it clearly made his afternoon hugely challenging and he did well to get back to seventh after serving the penalty. Valtteri had a difficult afternoon, he'd lost places off the start and initially thought he had a puncture as the car wasn't turning well to the right. We could see the tyres were holding pressure, so stayed out but throughout the race he was struggling to get close enough to make a pass. Part of that was due to us running a bit hot in traffic, but also the tyres were getting hot with the car sliding and he couldn't make the progress through the field that we hoped for. Overall, this was a day for the others to enjoy and be proud of. We'll go off and look at how we can improve in future, but we're really looking forward to Mugello next week, it's an amazing track and we've got the fastest F1 cars of all time which will be really impressive round there.

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Ferrari

    Both Scuderia Ferrari drivers had to retire from the 71st Italian Grand Prix at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza.

    Sebastian Vettel
    had a brake problem while Charles Leclerc crashed at the Parabolica, but emerged unscathed.


    When the lights went out, Charles stayed 13th while Sebastian lost a place to George Russell in the Williams, but he got it back on the following lap. However, on lap 6 his SF1000 had a brake problem, which meant he had to retire on the next lap.


    On lap 18, Charles pitted to switch from Soft to Hard tyres, rejoining in 17th place. On the next lap, Kevin Magnussen had to park his Haas at the side of the track with a problem, just before the pit lane entrance. This brought out the Safety Car, so that all the other cars took the opportunity to pit. Charles thus found himself sixth. At the restart, Leclerc was on a charge and passed the Alfa Romeos of Kimi Raikkonen and Antonio Giovinazzi to move up to fourth.

    Unfortunately, on the next lap Leclerc lost control of his car, crashing heavily into the barriers at the Parabolica corner. It was a frightening accident, but fortunately, Charles was not hurt.


    The busy season continues and next weekend, still in Italy, the final race of this third triple header of the year, the Toscana-Ferrari 1000 Grand Prix, the Scuderia's 1000th race, takes place at Mugello.


    Charles Leclerc
    :
    "It was a very difficult race and I struggled quite a lot with the balance. I thought at first we were unlucky when the safety car came out, but due to the fact the pit-lane remained closed, we were actually pretty lucky.

    We were in a very good place at that point, but I was struggling a lot on the hard tyres. I tried to push but then I made a mistake, lost the rear and crashed at Parabolica.


    "The crash was quite a big one but I am ok. A bit of pain here and there, which is quite normal.


    "We have had two difficult weekends for the team, but it's like this at the moment and I hope we can bounce back, so I am looking forward to Mugello."


    Sebastian Vettel
    :
    "This is a very difficult moment for the whole team and as part of it, I am suffering along with everyone else. But this is our reality right now and we need to try and do the best we can, to have a worthwhile final part of the season with still plenty of races to go. We have a lot of work to do and we have to be focused on that.


    "As for my race it was very short as almost immediately I had an issue with brakes. I went on the brakes in the first chicane but the car didn't slow and I had to drive through the run-off area. Actually it was the best possible spot to have the issue.


    "We have to keep our heads up, even if it is difficult. Now we head to Mugello, a completely different track and maybe there we could be in a bit of a better place. Hopefully we can have a clean weekend."


    Mattia Binotto, Team Principal:
    "Retirement for both cars is the worst possible end to a very difficult weekend. After Belgium, we knew that here too we would struggle a lot and so it turned out. That was clear in yesterday's qualifying but failing to get either car to the chequered flag really hurts. It's even more disappointing that Sebastian's retirement was down to a lack of reliability on the car. Problems like that, in this case with the brake system, should not happen.


    "It's a very hard season but it's by facing up to difficulties like these that you get stronger. We must look ahead and there are useful lessons for all of us to take away from this to build for the future. Having said that, we must absolutely not give up and we will be giving our all next weekend at Mugello which is a special event for us, being our one thousandth Formula 1 Grand Prix."

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Red Bull

    Alex Albon: "That wasn't a fun race and P15 clearly isn't reflective of our true package. We had a lot of damage with the left side of the floor missing after contact in Turn 1 and then with the time penalty our race was basically over. We had no grip and lost a load of downforce so it was a long race where we were just limping to the end. It's been a tough weekend for us as a Team which we thought it could be and then with the circumstances today it's just made it a lot harder. It's obviously a much better day for AlphaTauri so we're happy for those guys but for us, we need to put our heads down and focus on Mugello in a week's time."



    Max Verstappen
    :
    "I think pretty much everything that could go wrong today did go wrong. I had a very bad start with a lot of wheel spin when I dropped the clutch and from there onwards I was stuck in a DRS train which makes it almost impossible to overtake around here. After the red flag I had a problem with the engine at the re-start which we tried to solve but it didn't go away and we had to retire the car which is of course very disappointing. Now we just have to forget this race and move on to next week at a new circuit we are all excited to visit. It may not have been our weekend but I am very happy for Pierre as AlphaTauri have been very fast all weekend and to win here in Italy is very emotional and a great result for them. They are a great group of people and I hope they are going to enjoy this one tonight because they all deserve it."


    Christian Horner, Team Principal:
    "Firstly, I want to congratulate everyone at AlphaTauri, especially Franz, Pierre and Honda who achieved something great today to take victory here at Monza. Our challenging weekend continued into the race with Max initially bogging down at the start and finding himself in a DRS train which is almost impossible to break around this track. Alex suffered damage from contact at Turn 1 which he also incurred an arguably harsh five second time penalty for, putting him to the back of the field before the safety car re-start. At the re-start Max suffered an engine issue which we were unable to overcome, forcing him to retire on lap 30. The damage to Alex's floor from the early race contact was significant and he was losing around a second a lap throughout the race, resulting in him finishing P15.

    Certainly not our finest weekend but we will re-convene and work hard to ensure that we are back where we belong next weekend in Mugello."

    Italian GP: Race team notes - McLaren

    Carlos Sainz: "Well, what a race! Extremely happy to land a P2 here in Monza! Days like today are what make our sport so intense and rewarding. I'm especially proud because I think today we got this podium on pure pace, which is a great achievement! I was fast from start to finish and could maintain a great pace throughout the whole race. Without the red flag, being the first car legally on a stop, I could've won the race after Lewis got a penalty during the first Safety Car.



    "It's obviously impossible to be too disappointed with P2, but I wanted that win! I did my best to move quickly through the field after the restart and catch Gasly towards the end. Probably missed out by one lap! Still, super happy! Thank you to the whole race team for a great effort all weekend and to everyone back at the factory. We deserve it! On to Mugello."


    Lando Norris
    :
    "A really good race for me and us as a team. I had a great start and got ahead of three people into P3. I was really happy and we were controlling the pace well compared to some faster cars, but once everything settled down it's also very difficult to overtake. The whole race was going really well until the red flag. Some people benefitted and got very lucky, so it's a shame.


    "We put in a lot of hard work to put ourselves in a good position, but the rule allowing teams to change the tyre before the restart worked against us and meant that we lost out. It's a frustrating rule, and one that I hope can be looked at and reviewed. We could've had a double podium on merit today, but we lost out to that and the pitlane re-opening. But, I don't think we could've done much more so I'm happy with what I did. I'm also so happy for the team, it's an amazing result for us all."


    Andreas Seidl, Team Principal:
    "P2 and P4 at the 'temple of speed'. It's a fantastic result coming at the end of a weekend where we've been competitive from the first laps onwards. Congratulations to every single member of the team, out here at the track and back home in the factory, to our colleagues from Renault and especially our drivers for a sensational effort today. Circumstances were difficult and the special situation of the Safety Car with closed pit entry and the red flag didn't play into our hands. Everyone kept their heads down and focused on executing the race perfectly, resulting in the best finish for the McLaren F1 team since 2014.


    "We're leaving Monza with a lot of positives and looking at the second half of the season with confidence. We'll enjoy ourselves this evening after a great race, and tomorrow we'll reset and begin preparation for next weekend. We need to deliver another strong performance in Mugello.

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Renault

    Renault DP World F1 Team collected 12 points from an unpredictable and incident-filled Italian Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo sixth and Esteban Ocon eighth in Monza.



    A safety car and red flag were amongst the major incidents in the frenetic 52-lap race, which completely transformed the flow, and the order, of the Grand Prix.


    Both drivers made bright starts with Daniel passing Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen on lap 1 to hold fifth, and

    Esteban up three places from twelfth to ninth.


    A bizarre situation, which led to the safety car being deployed but the pit lane closed, completely changed the leaderboard. Both drivers pitted on lap 22 for Mediums, but a red flag laps later meant other cars who had not pitted gained a number of places.


    At the restart, Daniel was ninth and Esteban twelfth, with both cars enjoying strong starts from the reformed grid; Esteban gaining two places to tenth. Drive through penalties for cars ahead meant both drivers gained places with Daniel up to sixth towards the closing stages. Esteban progressed to seventh before being passed by Lewis Hamilton on the last lap to finish eighth.


    Daniel Ricciardo
    :
    "That was a crazy race. It reminded me of Baku in 2017 with a similar, tense feeling and it being very unpredictable. Congratulations to Pierre [Gasly] for his first win. I know the feeling from winning for the first time and it's crazy. Sixth isn't bad for us today, I felt I couldn't have done anymore in the situation. We weren't the only ones, but the safety car and red flag did not go our way today. After a good start and good pace, the timing wasn't on our side, but that's something we can't change. I'm happy with how it went today, we had a great start, good pace and we move onto next weekend."


    Esteban Ocon
    :
    "I have mixed feelings today as we had a good race on track and took some solid points, but also it was one of those races when you see the podium and wonder what could have been. We didn't have luck on our side with the pit-stop before the red flag and that meant a free stop for the others. The race was strong, I passed three cars at the start and had good race pace to be competitive inside the points. It's strange as I passed Gasly at the start and he won the race! We probably didn't match our expectations on the pace we thought we would have in Spa, but it was still a good effort."


    Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal:
    "After the good showing in Spa, and the planned announcement of the rebranding to Alpine F1 Team starting next year, there certainly was added pressure and expectation on the team this weekend. We also knew coming here, there were two big unknowns: firstly, the effects of the track characteristics on our car, which were clearly not as favourable as in Spa, with more lap-time spent in high speed corners, and secondly, the new technical directive on engine modes. If its impact on qualifying is not very clear yet, today's race shows the field remains more bunched up and more competitive, which will make racing more exciting. After an excellent start from both cars with Daniel overtaking Valtteri Bottas and keeping him behind and Esteban overtaking a number of cars on the opening laps, the various race incidents compromised our track position and meant we eventually had to settle for sixth and eighth. This is frustrating for the entire team, but we should not hide behind things we cannot control. Clearly, this weekend, our car is not as strong as McLaren who were further ahead in similar circumstances. Nevertheless, it's good to see four Renault engines in the top eight positions at a very demanding track like Monza. Overall, we scored decent points and that allows us to take fifth in the championship, while remaining in sight of the teams ahead."

    Italian GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauri

    Pierre Gasly: "This is amazing! I'm lost for words! It's unbelievable! I've been through so many things in the past 18 months and it's better than anything I expected. I focused hard when I re-joined Scuderia AlphaTauri. Day by day, race by race, we improved ourselves and got stronger and stronger – this team gave me my first podium in F1 last year in Brazil and today, these guys gave me my first win in Formula 1, in Italy, in Monza, with an Italian team. I'm not someone who gives up on anything, I always fought for everything in my life until I made it to F1. Today it was a great day! When I was fighting the last few laps to keep P1, I knew how gutted I would have been if I had lost it, I wouldn't have been happy with P2. I gave it everything I had - it was difficult - I pushed hard at the start of the stint to not give anyone the slipstream behind, then the last five laps were so intense, I almost shunted 10 times... I was pushing so hard! My tyres were gone but I wanted that win so much, it still feels weird to say I'm an F1 race winner. A big thanks to all of these guys here at the track and at the factory, in Faenza and Bicester, it's a great day for them too. Most of them are Italian and the HQ is in Faenza, Italy, so to win the Italian Grand Prix is amazing. Thank you all."



    Daniil Kvyat
    :
    "It was a very eventful race. I'm very happy for Pierre, congratulations to him and to the team, it's a great day for us. Looking at my race, P9 was the maximum we could achieve today with the timing of the safety car and the tyre choice we went for at the start of the race. Everything that could have gone wrong with the strategy, unfortunately did, but at least it was the opposite for Pierre. It was amazing for him to take the opportunity and I'm happy for him. I'm disappointed not to have had the same opportunity but I'm satisfied with my race, I'm honest with myself and I think I drove a good race."


    Claudio Balestri (Chief Engineer - Vehicle Performance):
    "What a Race! Pierre won the Grand Prix and Daniil finished P9. It's an amazing result for us, such a fantastic team effort.


    "On one side, we were lucky as Pierre pitted before the Safety Car, when Magnussen parked his car before the pitlane and the pit lane entry was closed for all the other cars; on the other side, after the red flag occurred due to Leclerc's crash, we were able to make a good start and to keep all the other cars behind for 27 laps, showing great pace. Daniil's race was different. He was following Pierre in the first stint showing good pace despite being on hard tyres, but unfortunately, the Safety Car and the closed pit entry didn't help his strategy. After the red flag in the second part of the race, he was able to recover positions and get in the points finishing in P9. This is a great day for Scuderia AlphaTauri, and now we will go to Mugello, trying to develop the car further with the clear target to get more points in the bag."


    Franz Tost (Team Principal):
    "Twelve years after the great victory in Monza in 2008 with Sebastian Vettel, Scuderia AlphaTauri was able to repeat itself, again in Monza with Pierre Gasly. Strategy-wise, the team did a fantastic job in deciding to bring him in one lap before the safety car was deployed. Of course, we didn't know this at that time, but at the end this was exactly the right call because at the restart of the race he was in P3 and was able to overtake Stroll into Turn 1. Hamilton had a stop and go penalty which elevated Pierre to the lead, and once he was in this position he was able to defend it until the end of the race, keeping Sainz under control. I must say Pierre drove a fantastic race. Daniil also drove a very strong race, he finished in the points although, was a bit unlucky with the tyre change. Normally, we would have liked to have called him in later, but in the end, he still finished in the top 10. This was the best possible result and we're extremely happy. Last but not least, a big thanks to Honda for their very powerful engine and their fantastic cooperation. Now we are switching our attention to Mugello, where we're looking to have another strong race."


    Toyoharu Tanabe (Honda F1 Technical Director):
    "A fantastic win today for Pierre Gasly and Scuderia AlphaTauri and it's particularly special that we can celebrate this moment together after what was the 50th race in our partnership. It was an extra bonus to get the win at AlphaTauri's home race. Pierre's drive was fast and consistent and the team strategy worked perfectly, as did our PU. Combined with everyone's efforts this delivered a great result. Congratulations to Pierre especially for his first ever F1 win, but also to everyone in the team. Honda is proud of our partnership which has got stronger step by step over the two and a half years we have been together. We hope our fans around the world enjoyed this afternoon as much as we did it and we thank them for their constant support. This was also the first race with the new PU mode restrictions and we have learned a lot over the three days at the track. Now we have plenty of data to prepare for the race in Mugello next week. Even though we won, it has been a tough weekend, especially as we had a PU issue in the race on Max's car. We will look into the cause immediately and hope that we can have another strong race next week with all four cars."

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Racing Point

    Lance Stroll: "It's been a while since I've stood on the podium, but it was worth the wait to get my second one! It feels great to be back on the podium, I'm still pinching myself! It's a weird scenario in a red flag situation - we don't usually get an intermission during races! You just have to reset and prepare. Firstly, I want to congratulate Pierre, it was such a crazy race, but he fully deserved that win. He had a great launch at the restart and was so consistent after that. It's a bit of a bummer for me, because I think it was our race to win. I had no grip at the restart and had too much wheelspin, so I lost a few places and fell back to P6. I had a good battle with Carlos after getting some places back - I overtook him but he got me back and I was pushing for the win right to the end. We got a bit of luck with the timing of the red flag, but that's part of Formula 1 and I'll take it when it comes! Regardless, I'm delighted with third today. I'm so happy for the team - thanks to them for giving me such a strong car."



    Sergio Perez
    :
    "Well done to Lance and the team on the podium, it's a great result. From my side, it's been a disappointing day. Anything that could go wrong seemed to happen to us. I had a poor start at the beginning of the race and lost places to the McLarens and Bottas. But then things started to look up for us. Lando then slowed down excessively in the pitlane during the pit window - which I think was dangerous - and we had a slow pit stop and that was costly. Max also crashed into me at Turn 2 after my stop and he damaged my car, so after the restart I had to drive with the damage. The main positive is that I was able to recover to get back into P10 and earn a point - and the team had a great day with Lance's finish too."


    Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal:
    "Congratulations to Lance and the whole team for today's podium - the first of the Racing Point era. It was a day all about taking opportunities and I'm very proud of the whole team. Lance battled hard today - making some excellent overtaking moves - and he really deserves this result. On the other hand, the luck didn't go Sergio's way today and his chances of scoring good points ended when the safety car came out. All in all though, it's a day of celebration for everybody at Racing Point. It's great to taste the champagne again and today's silverware is a fitting reward for the efforts back at base and trackside this year."

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Alfa Romeo

    Excitement. Disappointment. Hope. Heartbreak. If this reads like a list of very contrasting emotions, it's because it is: the Italian Grand Prix was a rollercoaster, pitching great highs and deep troughs that left us clutching the armrests of our chairs and slumping in despair in alternating fashion.



    The race had started really well for the team, another good launch promoting Kimi and Antonio to the low teen positions, fighting ahead of the Ferraris and chasing the top ten closely. It had had a sudden twist just as the pit stop window was opening, a Safety Car caused by Magnussen's stricken car shuffling the pack and bringing our cars to new heights, P4 and P5. It was a feat helped by some sterling work by the pit crew, which produced the fastest pit stop of the race, a 2.43s flash on Antonio's car, and the fifth fastest overall, 2.83, on Kimi's. But what the Gods of F1 give, they can also take away. A red flag, caused by Leclerc's (thankfully consequence-free) crash, brought the pack back to the pits. It gifted a free pit stop to the whole field - one that, sadly, would change the complexion of the race.


    With no fresh medium rubber left, having started the race with both cars on the yellow-banded compound, the team opted to go soft - the only tyres that would allow us to fight at the standing start. It was a choice that kept Kimi, now up in P2, in that position in the opening stages of the final 20-lap sprint then unfolding. It was a choice, however, that left us exposed as the other teams, able to mount new, longer-lasting medium tyres, made their way through the field.

    Antonio had fallen victim of a penalty, relegating him to last; Kimi fought valiantly, but had no tyres left to stop sliding down to 13th at the chequered flag.


    It was a crazy Sunday, one that sadly ended with no reward for us. Emotions ran high all over the pitlane, ranging from one end of the spectrum to the other in a race that will be one day seen as a classic. It wasn't to be for us - but we'll be looking to the next chance to do well, next week in Mugello.


    Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal:
    "It was a very bizarre race, one that has given us the full spectrum of emotions. We made a good start and our race pace was good in the first stint. The Safety car shuffled the pack and we found ourselves towards the front of the field, but unfortunately we picked up a penalty for Antonio at his pit stop, which compromised his race. Under the red flag we had to choose between the only tyres we had left available, the used hard tyres we had on or new softs, as we had no more mediums left. We went for the softs: they helped us at the restart, with Kimi running up to P2, but unfortunately our rivals' tyre advantage in the long run meant we ended up losing ground as the race progressed. We were close to a good result but it is what it is: we made progress both in terms of qualifying and race pace and we need to keep pushing to improve."


    Kimi Raikkonen
    :
    "It was a very disappointing result in the end but there was nothing we could really do. We only had soft tyres left at the red flag, after using mediums at the start, which effectively put us in a very difficult position. The soft tyres were good to fight and defend in the first few laps after the restart, but when they faded away we were left exposed. Until the red flag we were in a good position: the car felt good and things had turned pretty positively for us, but after that we really couldn't fight."


    Antonio Giovinazzi
    :
    "We end up without points after such a crazy race, which is a shame as things looked good at the beginning. In hindsight, knowing how things unfolded, we know that a top ten finish would have been unlikely, but it's still disappointing to have a penalty put you far at the back of the field when running in the top positions. We will need to investigate how the situation that led to the stop and go unfolded: in the moments after a safety car is called, everything happens really quickly and you react to what's happening around you: I was just focused on getting back to the pits. Afterwards, I was too far back to do anything, but this is racing. I just need to put this behind me and focus on next week race, another home Grand Prix for me, to try to do a better job."

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Haas

    Haas F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean was classified 12th while Kevin Magnussen was forced into retirement at the Italian Grand Prix, held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza on Sunday.



    Grosjean took the start from 16th on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires and maintained his position on the opening lap of the race.


    A hefty accident for Ferrari's Charles Leclerc on lap 23 of 53 brought out the red flag though fortunately he walked away unscathed. Race Control then opted to take a standing restart for the first time in Formula One history, with everyone again lining up on the grid.


    Grosjean took the restart from 13th on the White hard tires and preserved that set of rubber through to the checkered flag, gaining a spot to take 12th.


    Magnussen started from 15th on the medium tires but sustained front wing damage on the opening lap and dropped to the rear of the field as he stopped for repairs.


    Magnussen re-emerged on hard tires, with a new front-wing, but after completing 17 laps was forced to halt his VF-20 due to a suspected power unit issue.


    At the front of the field a wild grand prix was settled in favor of Alpha Tauri's Pierre Gasly, who registered his maiden Formula One victory, in front of McLaren's Carlos Sainz and Racing Point's Lance Stroll.


    Haas
    F1 Team maintains P9 in the Constructors' Championship with one point.


    Romain Grosjean
    :
    "Well, sadly that's our pace - and we finished where we did. It was a tough race for us, I drove my heart out as always. I had a fun battle with George (Russell), we pushed the limits to the maximum. Everything was great, the tires, the brakes, the energy and so on. I think it's been a more important day for Pierre (Gasly) today, it was a fantastic win for France, and for him after a tough year last year. It's been 24 years since there was a French winner in Formula One - since Olivier Panis in Monaco in 1996. It's beautiful, I'm happy for that."


    Kevin Magnussen
    :
    "I got caught in the middle of a three-wide situation at turn one on the first lap, I was sandwiched and ended up having my front-wing damaged. I had to pit, came back out with a new front-wing, and I had really, really good pace. We didn't expect to have that level of pace. That makes it even harder to be out of the race so early. It's not great of course, especially as we saw how good the pace was - we were matching the McLarens. I would have liked to have seen what we could have done in the race. It was pretty eventful. It was exactly the kind of race I'd loved to have been a part of."


    Guenther Steiner: "In general, I'd say it was quite an exciting race today, and for us - well, we did the best that we could. Unfortunately, we had a power unit issue with Kevin (Magnussen) meaning he couldn't get to the end. He had damage on his front wing on the first lap, so anyway he was already behind. We fought for what we were able to fight for and we leave with what we deserve at the moment."

    Nicholas Latifi finished 11th and George Russell 14th in an action-packed Italian Grand Prix. George started the race 19th, with Nicholas lining up 20th, both on the medium compound tyre.



    Nicholas pitted on lap 16 for the hard Pirelli tyre, with George pitting for the hard compound on lap 22 once the pitlane had reopened following Magnussen's retirement at the pit entrance.


    Both drivers took the opportunity to change onto the medium compound during the red flag period after Leclerc's crashed caused substantial damage to the barriers.


    After 43 years and 739 Grands Prix, this weekend's Italian Grand Prix marked the final race for the Williams family in Formula One.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance:
    The race was fairly mixed-up following a series of incidents, which, along with some retirements, allowed us to race to a strong result. It is very frustrating to beat all our main rivals with Nicholas, and still finish just short of the points.


    Although the drivers both raced well, and the car worked well today, we just lacked the raw pace to trouble the top ten. Following the disappointment of yesterday, it was nice to race hard and the experience we gained today will help us to improve as a race team. Our attention now turns to Mugello and the Tuscan Grand Prix. The circuit will place demands on the car that are quite different to those of Monza and we look forward to taking on the challenge of a new venue for Formula One.


    Nicholas Latifi
    :
    It was a very tricky and eventful race. I lucked into the position having completed the pitstop prior to the red flag. It was nice that I got to experience a top 10 starting position with the restart following the red flag. We are still struggling on those opening laps, with cold tyres and dirty air. It seems that the other cars can do much more, whilst I am trying not to crash and maintain the position. I am disappointed that I slipped out of the points. Once things settled down, I think the pace was alright and I managed to catch Kimi which was nice to have some kind of a battle. I am happy with the overall result, but it would have been nice to reward Claire and the team with some points today.


    It's been a huge privilege to race for Claire and Frank. From the moment I joined the team I felt right at home, and it was very clear the atmosphere and culture they've instilled is valued. You can understand why so many of the employees' love working for them and the team. I'm going to miss them, Formula One is going to miss them, and I want to wish them all the best of luck for the future wherever life takes them.


    George Russell
    :
    It was an unfortunate race and we were unlucky not to pit before the red flag. The car was feeling really good, we were just slow on the straight. Every time I overtook a car, they just passed me on the straight. It is a shame, because I think we could have scored points today. The car was feeling fast but that is just racing. I am really happy to see the top four finishers today; it is absolutely awesome for them.


    It's also the end of an era and it's been a privilege to be a part of it. What Claire and Frank have done for the team, and for the people that work for the team, is extraordinary. They've always kept them in their hearts and that's still the case now.


    Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal: It has been my greatest privilege and my biggest honour to work with everybody in our incredible team. But more importantly from Frank, myself and everybody in the Williams family I would like to thank all of our team, past and present, for everything they have given to us over the years. They are the true warriors of this team and we wish them all the success in the world for the future. We would also like to thank all of our fans around the world who have supported us through thick and thin for so many years. You have humbled us. Our time in this sport has been a huge privilege, we leave with so many memories, we have been through highs and lows, triumph and adversity and will forever love Formula One.

    Italian GP: Race team notes - Pirelli

    AlphaTauri driver Pierre Gasly took his debut win at Monza using all three compounds brought by Pirelli. The red flag on lap 26 meant that all the drivers could change tyres in the pits, so effectively, the Italian Grand Prix boiled down to a 27-lap sprint race, which re-started at 16:20 local time.



    Racing Point
    's Lance Stroll, who finished third, effectively gained a 'free' pit stop, as he was the only driver not to stop before the red flag came out.


    Mercedes
    driver Lewis Hamilton led the race from pole, but was handed a 10 second stop-and-go penalty, which he served immediately after the race re-started. On Yellow medium tyres, he re-started first, emerged at the back after his penalty, and eventually ended up seventh with the White hard.


    A number of different tyre strategies were already seen before the red flag, but when the race was re-started, there was an equally wide selection of tyres used: with all three compounds chosen for the re-start. However, the top six at the finish all selected the medium tyre for the second half of the race.


    There were no further pit stops following the re-start, even for the drivers who had chosen the Red soft tyre (used by Renault's Esteban Ocon to finish eighth).


    Weather conditions remained dry and warm, with 30 degrees ambient and 41 degrees centigrade at the re-start.

    Mario Isola: "All our compounds performed well today. The race strategy was obviously dominated and reset by the red flag. This was preceded by a safety car, all of which added up to a highly unusual and entertaining grand prix. Effectively, we had a 27-lap sprint race to the finish, which meant that the drivers had to think about managing their tyres throughout the duration of the second half of the race. Congratulations to Pierre Gasly and AlphaTauri for a very memorable and perfectly-managed victory - as well as to Carlos Sainz with McLaren and Lance Stroll with Racing Point, who finished second and third at this incredible Italian Grand Prix: where the top three all used completely different strategies."

    Fantástica victoria de Gasly. Creo que, por merecimiento, lo justo hubiera sido que Carlos ganase ayer, no pudo ser pero hay que reconocerle el mérito: lo que estaba en su mano, lo hizo todo bien. Pero Gasly estuvo impecable, le benefició el SC y lo aprovechó, peeeeero.."hay que estar ahi", a Carlos podria haberle ido peor, no hay mas que ver al pobre Perez, que ayer merecia el podio. Pierre está que se sale desde que le pusieron en el segundo equipo, sin duda ayuda al no estar a la sombra de Max (que carrera mas gris ayer tanto de el como de su compañero).

    Como cambian las cosas cuando Mercedes no está, Hamilton por el chorri-error de ayer y Bottas porque, la verdad, no tiene lo que hay que tener. "Tengo un pinchazo o algo" decia despues de la primera vuelta...no, simplemente te han robado la cartera, ni mas ni menos.

    Ferrari...madre mia, que dificil tiene que ser...ser fan a dia de hoy. Leclerc parece que hubiera salvado los muebles ayer quizas con algun punto pero "la cagó", ni mas ni menos. Vettel rompiendo los "bloques" fué otra imagen patética del equipo, sonrojante.

    Veremos en Mugello, en principio no deberin hacer tanto el ridiculo alli.

    En la resalida tras la bandera roja, KR sólo disponía de neumático blando "nuevo". Durante la carrera extrañaba esa elección, pero no tenía otra opción.

    Es verdad, no recordaba que había salido con el único medio que tenía y que montó el duro justo antes de aparecer el coche de seguridad.
