Monza from a hundred in the report card, Max is flying at the World Championship. Leclerc: trust us extra!
The sixteenth spherical of the calendar faithfully “photos” higher the energy of the present World Cup
MAX VERSTAPPEN: VOTE … 11
Eleven such victories in the season of now virtually twice the world champion. Eleven as a provocation, talking of indifference of the TremendousMax that is now flying in the World Championship. He mixes along with his buddies solely at the starting of the GP: he begins seventh, third at the finish of the first lap, second at the fifth lap. Then push and draw back from Leclerc to win. The relaxation is historical past: World Cup historical past on the approach to the end line is “Schumacherian” ahead. Over the remaining stretch, Monza “stamps” the edges of the Dutch hero, virtually a excellent alternative.
GEORGE RUSSELL: VOTE 8.5
Not actually preventing for Monza and never even for the second a part of the podium. The third one offers him the Safety Car. Having recognized the “shortcomings”, we come to the benefits of George, Lord of Consistency: Fifteen out of sixteen GPs in the prime 5 (seven instances on the podium), now close to Perez in third place in the World Championship of Drivers. He simply misses the first victory, which is sluggish to return however in this case justified … Hamilton writes to him he is driving the different Mercedes, chasing his first win of the season and he cannot boast of what he is completed this yr!
FIA, RACE DIRECTION, SAFETY CAR: NO VOTES
A Safe Car that prompts with a one-minute delay when wanted and stays with Russell as an alternative of going in search of a chief, again mower and wheels on the left facet of the observe and single-seaters to parade on the observe itself, as effectively confusion – the punishment of the evening it is a line that remained in shock at its final look for hours after it ended. Things too large to make gentle, grades, report playing cards and – worst of all – feedback. Which can be sooner at least.
CHARLES LECLERC: VOTE 7
Saturday’s pole was the tenth, the competitors lowered virtually a little. Charles on the observe drives as he is aware of how, as few others do. But… there’s a catch: the group asks him over the radio to “settle for” the determination ready for the change from purple to yellow, in a chemical sense (toh, the similar chromatic mixture for Ferrari’s journey to Monza 2022). He affirms: What if he stated: no, let’s straighten it out? Maybe Sainz as an alternative would have been extra assertive. Can the remaining consequence change? There is no particular data that reveals this and in any case Max had some saved there. While we’ve got it, at the nook of the plot: he was chilly (GP) and ordered Leclerccan we (kind of all) put it down exhausting?
LEWIS HAMILTON: VOTE 6.5
As the final champion, beginning from the end line leaves it to others (Sainz, in this case) to pave the means and loosen the skein in the center of the pack. Then he rolls up his sleeves (of the swimsuit) and closes fifth, instantly behind Sainz himself who had simply made the satan into 4 at the site visitors gentle (“Go, go, see you”). Except that the main gamers are actually othersbeginning with a associate) and the resumption of the center slowly turns into the most troublesome worth after the Grand Prix.
CARLOS SAINZ: VOTE 9.5
The first return is a scream: he shoots his head down and after ten laps out of eighteen on the grid he is already fifth. From “Despicable me” on SERGIO “CROCEROSSA” PEREZ (as an alternative we won’t shoot: VOTE 6 and due to the excessive velocity of the GP). The observe is good, higher than Leclerc’s (however greater than that). He had nothing to lose and ran away weak and unfastened on his head than Charles. However, we suspect that Carlos will at all times be extra relaxed than the Monegasque and this is one among his strengths. The podium was misplaced to Aston Martin (no, not Stroll or Vettel…) however the efficiency ought to nonetheless be appreciated.
LANDO NORRIS AND DANIEL RICCIRDO: VOTE 5
Mind you, the efficiency of the two papayas on the observe wasn’t too unhealthy, given the current occasions. However, a yr in the past Daniel & Lando in this place made an unimaginable rise and took off as a pair on the second row. We all know the way it turned out: the Australian launched the “casus belli” in the remaining confusion. A teammate from Bristol provided (we’ve got to repeat ourselves) to do with out the excessive requirements.
NYCK DEVRIES: VOTE 7
No one drove three completely different vehicles this yr: Williams, Mercedes, Aston Martin. At least two in one weekend. Nyck is prepared (God forbid!), the chaos-penalty of the group offers him the fourth orange row with Verstappen. Bring Williams to the pits with out scratches and in entrance of Latifi (Obviously it would not improve by a fraction of a level, it positive aspects two factors to start with, the solely remnant of the dream week: it is criticized for punching “in the face” GUANYU ZHOU throughout the remaining neutralization. Speaking of which: VOTE 6.5 for the Chinese rookie (who apparently) closes the prime ten by giving himself a dot of the rainbow e giving to Alfa Romeo that – after all – he has completed (and gained) one thing in the centennial of the National Autodrome. Grab it to your satisfaction!
SEBASTIAN VETTEL: VOTE 4.5
He didn’t end tenth in his final race at Monza, a distance that noticed him win his first World Championship in 2008 with Toro Rosso, twice with Red Bull however did not win six consecutive years. Ferrari. He roams the paddock with tempo and emotion between the overseas physique and the “runaway”. On the different hand, he stated. Do you understand? We envy him!
NATIONAL AUTODROMO OF MONZA: VOTE … 100
One would possibly say: a hundred Grand Prix however, you noticed the epilogue, no! A full week of “Monza Fever” closed with a remaining shout nailed down the throat that the Centenary of the Autodromo Nazionale is not value it. The one-of-a-kind occasion scene stays, a story that is incomparable, a magical place till considering like this aeven when it is not September, you’ll be able to hear the noise amongst the greenery. A person virtually wonderful: Autodrome was born first (capital A is not a mistake!) or Park? Has the observe been discovered amongst the vegetation or has the forest grown to make it?
