Ricciardo won for McLaren!!! Verstappen and Hamilton crashed!
"It's very unfortunate what happened today but we are both professionals and so we will move on" ~ Max Verstappen
Daniel Ricciardo won the Italian GP and Lando Norris finished in 2nd, it was 1-2 for McLaren, which doesn't happen since Canada 2010, besides that, the Australian didn't win since Monaco 2018, what an amazing race, unpredictable result, just like last year when Gasly won the race.
We saw the collide between the two champions contenders for this year, Verstappen crashed into the car of Hamilton, ending up with his Red Bull at the top of the Mercedes car, luckily we have the halo, which protected Lewis from a possible major injury.
In 3rd finished Valtteri Bottas, starting from the 19th position, he did an excellent race, surprisingly he wasn't the one who won the Driver of the day, from the fans vote, Ricciardo also won this one.
In 4th was Charles Leclerc with Peréz behind in 5th, the Mexican driver would actually finish in 3rd, if wasn't for the 5 seconds time penalty received due the overtake he made previously, but through out of the track.
In 6th finished Carlos Sainz, in 7th Lance Stroll, in 8th Fernando Alonso, in 9th George Russell, the Williams driver finished again on the top 10, getting more points, great job.
To completing the top 10 was Esteban Ocon.
The extra point for fastest lap was given to Ricciardo, who got it in the last lap of the race (2021 DHL Fastest Lap Award), well done!
An outstanding race, we hope to have more games like this, please, invite you to watch the resume of this race on the link below.
