Vettel’s Ferrari fastest at Italian GP ahead of qualifying

Share

"His triumph is similar to a coronation, Ferrari again creates a victory in Monza, who had failed in the past nine years".

Binotto also said in Monza that there was no doubt about Vettel's place at Ferrari for 2020: "I have said it and I am confirming it again - for next year Sebastian and Charles are our drivers and there's no doubt at all about this". I think especially Singapore.

Ferrari, the greatest name in motorsport, should be a threat to any man hoping to take the Formula One title. "I believe that Austria helped me to change this approach today, it's also thanks to this that I managed to win".

"To be completely honest, obviously I knew he was on the right, he braked a little bit early which I think was probably on goal because he didn't' want to try around the outside".

Leclerc, who started from pole position, was roared on by the passionate Ferrari tifosi as he crossed the line 0.8 seconds ahead of Valtteri Bottas and 35.1 ahead of championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

And while Leclerc was celebrating his second victory in a row, lapping up the adoration from thousands of passionate Ferrari tifosi, Vettel cut a miserable figure after his disappointing season lurched to a fresh low at Monza.

His temperament has been increasingly questioned, however, over the past year with some pundits accusing him of cracking under pressure and making mistakes unworthy of a multiple champion. As he rejoined the track, he collided with Racing Point's Lance Stroll, who in turn spun and consequentially forced Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly off and into the gravel trap as he rejoined.

Canadian Lance Stroll, in the Racing Point, was unable to avoid a glancing contact and went spinning off, returning in an equally alarming fashion and nearly colliding with Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly. I tried to avoid him by going to the left but he just kept moving forward and eventually we made contact: I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. I think I was stuck on the grass and lost a bit of momentum there and that took a little bit longer. To add insult to injury, he was lapped by Leclerc with a third of the race remaining. Stroll also suffered a spin from the contact with Vettel, and he too almost hit Toro Rosso's Pierre Gasly when rejoining the track, which saw him receive the same penalty as Vettel.

Hamilton will nearly certainly defend his championship this season but he has belatedly been given something to think about heading into 2020.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff expressed fears, however, that any easing of the strict driving standards could be problematic. His decision to then rejoin the track sideways, when others were flying through the high-speed Ascari chicane, would have been shameful if you were playing F1 2019 online.

"Maybe I'll position the vehicle differently next time, maybe I'll do a better job".
