Max Verstappen has won the Italian GP for the first time in his career after finishing the race behind the safety car.
Daniel Ricciardo stopped in the second sector on Lap 51 with a reliability issue, summoning the safety car on track. Although there were hopes racing would resume before the chequered flag, time ran out before the McLaren was safely removed from the trackside.
Joining the Dutchman on the podium was Charles Leclerc in second for Ferrari and George Russell in third for Mercedes.
Speaking after the race, Verstappen said: “We had a great race.
“On every compound we were good. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a restart at the end but overall we had a really good day.
“It was really enjoyable to drive today. A great day for us.
“It took a bit of time to be on a great podium like this.”
A disappointed Leclerc added: “The end was frustrating, I wish we could have had a bit of a race,” says Charles Leclerc. “Unfortunately we were second because of what happened before.
“It’s a shame, but I gave it all today. I wish I could have won in front of the amazing Tifosi but I just couldn’t today.”
