Kudos! The results are out! Pierre Gasly becomes the first French driver to win the Italian Grand Prix. After a lot of crashes and penalities, he made it in the end. He won for the Alpha Tauri team, which was the second win of the team on the Italian Soil.
Lewis Hamilton Missed It
Being one of the most successful drivers in the history of Sports, Hamilton couldn’t make up this time. His Italian Grand Prix suffered from the weird sequence of events. Hamilton looked on the course of the race after establishing a commanding second lead with 20 laps out of 53 on the board but got hit with a 10 second stop and go penalty after he stopped for tires because of the closure of pit lanes.
And eventually, he crossed the line as number seven. The mistake of Hamilton served as the best catalyst for the outshined race of the year. Gasly, on the other hand, started in the 10’th position but was at the third position when he restarted to follow Charles Leclerc’s high-speed crash at Parabolica.
When the race restarted on Lap 28, Hamilton stopped for his penalty and it was the twist where Gasly took hold of the nerve and left only after securing a spectacular win. He won by just 0.4 seconds. What an incredible win.
Gasly would be on seventh heaven
Gasly now becomes the first Frenchmen to win a Grand Prix since Oliver Panis won in 1996. As the world knows, Gasly was abruptly dumped by Red Bull a year ago, But his grand comeback gave answers to all. He celebrated his maiden win with McLaren’s Carlos Sainz and Racing Point driver Lance Stroll at an improbable podium at Monza.
