Racing – Italian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton Wins
Lewis Hamilton took an exciting triumph in the Italian Grand Prix following a first-lap conflict with title equal Sebastian Vettel.
The Mercedes driver battled furiously with Vettel’s partner Kimi Raikkonen all through the race and in the end passed him around the outside of the principal corner with nine laps to go.
Hamilton and Mercedes not just dashed Ferrari’s expectations of a home win after their first front-push bolt out at Monza for a long time yet additionally broadened the Briton’s title lead over Vettel, who completed fourth, to 30 points.
Wow… I’ll never forget this. We did this together. To the fans, you stood tall, loud and bright in amongst all of the negativity that surrounded us today. We rise together. To my team, I am forever grateful of your vision and passion. We never give up #StillWeRise @MercedesAMGF1 pic.twitter.com/SZ19bCC6Kh

That is in excess of a reasonable win, with seven races and an aggregate of 175 points staying in the season.
It could not have come at a superior time for Hamilton, who is confronting a battle against an evidently speedier auto, in any event in qualifying, and with Mercedes’ intruder track, Singapore, next on the calendar.
As an Italian, I wanna take clear distance from all this booing under the podium in Monza. Great job Lewis and same for Kimi, two heroes who took us through a great day of sport! #SkyMotori @MercedesAMGF1 @LewisHamilton

“There’s been a lot of negativity but there were a lot of British flags out there today. They know who they are. In future I only want to turn to a negative to a positive. Thanks to Valtteri too. We never give up.”
