Max Verstappen won his 31st F1 race at the 2022 Italian F1 GP today. The Red Bull driver started from P7 position and won on the Monza circuit for the first time. It was his record breaking 10th consecutive victory of the season and his 12th in total this year. The Red Bull Racing team scored their 106th race win.

Verstappen Extends Winning Streak with Victory at Italian Grand Prix

In a race filled with drama and intense battles, Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing clinched his tenth consecutive victory at the Italian Grand Prix held at the iconic Monza circuit. Verstappen's dominance in the 2023 Formula One season continues, marking a record-breaking streak of wins.

Under the warm and sunny Italian skies, the race day started with anticipation, as fans filled the stands at Monza for the 14th Grand Prix of the season. The formation lap got off to a tense start with Carlos Sainz leading the pack. However, disaster struck as Yuki Tsunoda's AlphaTauri suffered a smoking engine failure, leading to an aborted start. The race was shortened by a lap due to this incident.

The start of the race was clean and all cars made it through the first tight chicane. Lewis Hamilton who started  on the Hard tyres lost a place to Lando Norris. Norris' McLaren teammate Oscar Piastri overtook the Williams of Alex Albon. Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg even moved up three places.

Amidst the soaring temperatures and challenging track conditions, the drivers displayed remarkable skill in managing their tires. Verstappen, in particular, demonstrated his prowess by maintaining pressure on Sainz. The battles for position were intense throughout the race, with several drivers making strategic moves to gain advantages. It took Verstappen who started second, 15 laps to overtake Sainz for the lead and drive away.

Sergio Perez, Verstappen's teammate, showcased his determination by relentlessly pursuing Sainz for the second spot. Perez's persistence paid off as he managed to secure a hard-fought second place on the podium. Ferrari's Sainz valiantly defended his position against Perez and his own teammate, Charles Leclerc, ultimately finishing third and claiming his first podium of the season.

Leclerc's fourth-place finish was a testament to Ferrari's improved performance on their home turf. The Italian team's efforts were met with the enthusiasm of the passionate crowd at Monza. George Russell of Mercedes, despite receiving a time penalty, secured fifth place, while Lewis Hamilton recovered from a collision with Oscar Piastri to finish sixth.

Piastri, who had shown promise earlier in the race, unfortunately suffered a setback due to the collision and had to do a pit stop to get a new front wing. The Australian driver finished just outside the points in 11th place.

Verstappen's remarkable win extends his lead in the drivers' championship and solidifies Red Bull Racing's dominance in the constructors' championship. The team has now won 15 consecutive races, with the last non-Red Bull victory dating back to Brazil in the previous season.

The Italian Grand Prix treated fans to thrilling battles, unexpected twists, and a display of exceptional driving skills. As the Formula One season progresses, all eyes are on Verstappen and Red Bull Racing as they continue to rewrite the history books in their pursuit of championship glory.

The Formula One action will resume next weekend in Singapore, marking the beginning of the Asian leg of the season. With Verstappen's winning streak and Red Bull's dominance, the remaining races promise more excitement and surprises for fans around the world.

2 F1 Fan comments on “Race Results 2023 Italian F1 Grand Prix

  1. Jere Jyrälä

    The best 2023 race thus far.
    Lots of battles & drivers were even unusually aggressive, especially Sainz, who drove in the grey area (& under braking) a bit too much into Prima Variante.
    Good defensive drive by Albon, although Tsunoda's car recovery took unnecessarily long.
    A truck should've been in place beforehand.

    OK race but boy have the press over reacted about Ferrari's third on home turf, the absolute minimum IMHO. Solid race by Lawson, hopefully DR will be out for the next race too.
