Results and summary of F1 Sunday at Monza: the race

Charles Leclerc led from pole position, following a duel with George Russell at the first corner, but an early stop during a virtual safety car period on lap 12 allowed Max Verstappen to take the lead after starting from seventh.

The Monegasque was back in the lead when the Dutchman pitted near the halfway point of the race, but the Ferrari team driver made a second stop to mount softs and try to attack towards the end of the race.

Leclerc did not have the pace to close on Verstappen, and a late safety car following a breakdown in Daniel Ricciardo’s McLaren caused the race to end under yellow flags, giving Verstappen his fifth successive victory.

What happened at the 2022 F1 Italian GP race at Monza?

Leclerc (who started on soft tyres) held onto the pole position advantage on the long straight before Turn 1, ahead of a Russell (also on soft) who tried to overtake him at the first chicane. Further back, his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton, who was starting 19th , made a mistake and dropped to last.

Ricciardo was fourth, ahead of Verstappen (who started seventh, also on soft) and Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri). Lando Norris made a very poor start in third position and dropped to sixth. Verstappen passed Ricciardo for third place at the start of the second lap, while Carlos Sainz (who started 18th) moved past Sergio Pérez for 15th .

Verstappen quickly caught up with Russell and overtook him at the Rettifilo chicane at the start of lap five to take second. Leclerc was 2.2s away at the time.

As Sainz made his way into the top 10, moving up to seventh on lap 10, his old starting position partner, Pérez, fell to the rear due to a breakdown that caused one of his brakes to catch fire. Shortly after, Sebastian Vettel had to retire due to an ERS problem on lap 12, causing a brief VSC.

Leclerc took advantage of that opportunity to pit, while Verstappen stayed out and took the lead ahead of Russell. The Monegasque rejoined in third position, just ahead of Ricciardo, who was overtaken by Sainz at Ascari.

Behind the leaders, Fernando Alonso’s Alpine took seventh position when he overtook Norris at Rettifilo, but the Briton handed it back on lap 18.

Just before the halfway point of the race, Verstappen pitted to ride the mediums with a 14-second lead, handing the lead back to Leclerc with a 10-second lead.

Sainz pitted for the softs on lap 31, rejoining behind Pérez, whom he took two laps to pass, at the Roggia chicane.

With Verstappen reducing his distance from Leclerc at a forced pace, the Monegasque pitted and put on soft on lap 34, rejoining in second but 19.5s off the lead.

On the softs, Norris quickly regained the positions of Gasly and Ricciardo who he had lost in the pits after a bad stop. Also on the softs, Hamilton moved up to sixth and Pérez made a late stop, dropping to seventh.

Ricciardo ran out of power with five laps to go, causing the safety car to go out. All the leaders pitted for softs, but all that was irrelevant as the race never restarted.

In this way, Verstappen achieved a new victory, ahead of Leclerc and Russell, who started from the front row, and Sainz and Hamilton, who started from the back of the grid. Pérez was sixth, ahead of Norris, Gasly, impressive rookie Nyck de Vries (Williams) and Guanyu Zhou (Alfa Romeo).

Alonso retired on lap 32, joining Vettel, and Stroll was also forced to retire his car with 12 laps to go, resulting in a double DNF for Aston Martin.
