Formula One is back on the Monza circuit


All Formula One enthusiasts know that the Monza track is very important for grand prix calendar. Thanks to its shape, the track is very exciting and everyone managed to get fond of it. Despite the fact that recently a lot of deadly accidents took place, without Monza, the Italian Grand Prix would not be the same. This last weekend, we all had the opportunity to see the competition and so, see Lewis Hamilton get to the finish line first. Jenson Button managed to arrive in second. The third place was occupied by Felipe Massa and Paul di Resta came in fourth. The next ones were Michael Schumacher, on fifth, Sebastian Vettel, Nico Rosberg, Kimi Raikkonen, Kamui Kobayashi and Fernando Alonso. This last one had some technical problems in the final qualification session.



The start looked quite good for Ferrari. Massa managed to overpass Button and so reached second place. Alonso, on the other hand managed to change from 10th to 6th. At the 19th lap Button got past the Ferrari. For several laps Alonso was behind Vettel, but on lap 29 the managed to overtake him. Of course, like almost all races have incidents, this one was no exception. Vettel pushed Alonso wide off the track and he received a drive-through penalty. Sergio Perez had a very incredible race. He managed to set a fastest lap and was past Raikkonen in 5th place. Perez managed to catch up to Alonso by lap 39 who was trying to catch Massa. By lap 40 he managed to do it and Perez as well, but only by lap 44. They spoiled his enthusiasm of arriving third and landed on fourth. By lap 48, due to engine problems, Vettel had to retire trackside. Webber also had problems and he was forced to give up on the penultimate lap. At the end, Hamilton, followed by Perez and Alonso took the podium. Alonso is still in the lead with 179 points followed by Hamilton with 142 points and Raikkonen who managed to obtain 141 points. On the 23rd of this month, we will have the opportunity to see another show of this kind in Singapore, so stay close.
