Looking for a white guy in monza
In an impressive display of calm driving under huge pressure, Leclerc finished narrowly ahead of Mercedes' Valtteri Bottas who had been able to pass his team mate Lewis Hamilton for second place in the closing laps. However it was a nightmare race for Sebastian Vettel who spun at Ascari and was penalised for returning to the track in an unsafe manner which resulted in him clipping Racing Point's Lance Stroll. Max Verstappen also hit trouble early on, but the Red Bull still managed to recovered from a back of the grid start to finish in the top ten. Despite heavy rain overnight, Monza was back to its sunny best in time for the start of Sunday afternoon's race.
