The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix held at Autodrome Enzo e Dino Ferrari, Italy ended on expected note with Lewis Hamilton raising the championship cup.
The 93 career Formula One victory of Lewis Hamilton also spearheaded Mercedes to claim their record seventh consecutive constructors’ title. The podium finish had two familiar faces, both from the Mercedes team while the Renault’s driver Daniel Ricciardo grabbed the third place marking it as his second podium finish of the season.
The entire Italian Grand Prix was a bumpy road for the Redbull’s face Max Verstappen, who though had an amazing start giving the second winner Valtteri Bottas a tough time, took early retirement because of tyre issue. Moreover 24-year-old Pierre Gasly, who just a few days back renewed his contract with Alpha Tauri, also had to go off the track due to the coolant leak.
