Max Verstappen takes first win over Monza

Max Verstappen won Formula 1 for the fifth time in a row on Sunday. The World Cup leader overpowered Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc in the Italian Grand Prix and once again strengthened his championship lead. At the next race in Singapore, he even gets a small chance at his second world title. Formula 1 debutant Nyck de Vries, who replaced Alexander Albon who suffered from appendicitis at Williams, finished in ninth place. He immediately received his first two World Cup points. The other Williams driver, Nicholas Latifi, has not scored any points this entire season. Verstappen crossed the line as the winner while the field was behind the safety car. It had entered the track because of Daniel Ricciardo’s McLaren stalled. It then took too long to get the Australian’s car away. Leclerc was second, followed by Mercedes driver George Russell. Carlos Sainz was fourth in the Ferrari. Fifth place was for Lewis Hamilton, followed by Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Pérez in sixth place. Verstappen can become champion at the next race in Singapore if he wins the race, Leclerc retires and Pérez does not finish higher than sixth.
