Lewis Hamilton wins 2015 Italian GP at Monza

Snapshot: Teammate Nico Rosberg retired in the penultimate lap.

It was yet another effortless win for current world champion Lewis Hamilton who was the first to cross the finish line on the Monza track for the 2015 Italian Grand Prix. It’s his seventh triumph this season and managed to beat second place holder Sebastian Vettel by a massive 25 seconds. There was some tension right after the race stewards found out the tire pressure on Hamilton’s car did not meet the required specifications, but in the end he kept the victory and now has a 53-point championship lead.

Teammate Nico Rosberg had to retire in the penultimate lap of the race as his car went up in flames due to a technical glitch. It was a good day for Fernando Alonso as he secured a second place finish while his colleague Kimi Raikkonen had a very poor start from second place and immediately dropped to sixth, but during the race he had a great comeback and ultimately grabbed fifth place, behind the Williams cars driven by Felipe Massa (3) and Valtteri Bottas (4).

Force India should be very happy with its performance at Monza as Sergio Perez finished sixth, right in front of teammate Nico Hulkenberg. The 2015 Italian GP wasn’t a great venue yesterday for Red Bull as they only managed an eighth place with Daniel Ricciardo and tenth place with Daniil Kvyat while between the two RB cars was Marcus Ericsson (Sauber).

Fernando Alonso will surely want to forget his performance at Monza as he retired late during the race while Jenson Button finished 14th, so it was yet another race for McLaren Honda without earning any points.

The next race of the 2015 Formula 1 season will take place on September 20 in Singapore at the Marina Bay Street Circuit during the evening hours, so it should be an interesting race.
