Leclerc past Hamilton, 2nd straight Win in Italian GP

Charles Leclerc past Bottas, Hamilton, back-to-back Win in Italian GP 2019.

Charles Leclerc won the Italian Grand Prix for Ferrari with excellent driving. He had to see off a concerted attack by Lewis Hamilton who was third and the British driver’s Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas, who took second. The two Renaults of Daniel Ricciardo and Nico H├╝lkenberg ended fourth and fifth.

It is the second successive victory for Leclerc's after following his maiden win in Belgium a week ago, and Ferrari's first at their home race since Fernando Alonso triumphed in 2010.

The 1978 world champion Mario Andretti, who drove for Ferrari at the start of his career and at the end of the 1982 season, said: "Fab win for Charles Leclerc, under pressure all the way. Future world champion for sure."

Italian GP reaction, quotes:

Leclerc said:    "I did a few mistakes but at the end I finished first. Very happy with this. I need to be careful with the mistakes but none of them made me lose position today."

Bottas said:    "I think we had some good strategy for me but I am gutted. I tried everything to get him but the re was no way past. There was front locking from the loss of downforce and they are so fast in a straight line."

Hamilton said:    "Charles did a great job. A lot of pressure from Valtteri and me. I did the best I could. Following so closely for such a long time. The tyres went off, they were so quick in a straight line."

 When & Where the next Formula 1 Race, F1 Singapore GP race date, start time? 

Singapore in two weeks' time. It's tight and twisty and has lots of corners, so Ferrari can expect to struggle after two consecutive wins. But can Red Bull take the challenge to Mercedes at Marina Bay? Max Verstappen will fancy his chances.

Next F1 race:      #SingaporeGP

When:       Sunday, 22 September

Kick-off time:    8:10 pm local.

Track:          Marina Bay Street Circuit
