Italian Grand Prix Race Results

Max Verstappen and Red Bull came out on top in a battle against the Ferraris to secure victory in Sunday’s Italian Grand Prix and make more F1 history – the Dutchman moving ahead of Sebastian Vettel with 10 wins on the bounce and the team stretching their winning run to 15 races.

Verstappen slotted behind the pole-sitting Carlos Sainz at the start but hounded his rival as the opening stint wore on, eventually forcing the Ferrari driver into a mistake at the first chicane on Lap 15 and then sweeping past around the outside of the Curva Grande.

From there, the reigning double world champion never looked back, pulling out a comfortable advantage up front for his latest F1 record as Sainz, team mate Sergio Perez and the other Ferrari of Charles Leclerc fought over the remaining podium positions.

After an action-packed finale and some fierce defending from Sainz, it was Perez who emerged with the runner-up spot behind Verstappen, giving Red Bull their sixth one-two finish of the season as they turned the tables on Ferrari at the famous marque’s home track (Formula1.)
