Italian GP: Pierre Gasly wins for AlphaTauri after Lewis Hamilton penalty

Italian GP: Pierre Gasly wins for AlphaTauri after Lewis Hamilton penalty”

The impact caused extensive damage to Leclerc's vehicle and also damaged the tyre barriers, resulting in the race being stopped after 27 laps of running of the 53 scheduled.

Pierre Gasly caused a modern-day Formula 1 shock by winning his maiden race for AlphaTauri after a hugely-dramatic and incident-filled Italian GP in which Lewis Hamilton finished only seventh after a time penalty.

But he had been given a 10-seconds stop-go penalty for taking a pit-stop while the pit-lane was closed after Kevin Magnussen had pulled up and parked his Haas vehicle in the pit-lane.

He, along with all the leaders, pitted during the first safety-car period, triggered by a breakdown for Kevin Magnussen's Haas.

Gasly had made his stop a couple of laps before the first safety vehicle so did not stop again, and this promoted him to third behind Hamilton and Racing Point's Lance Stroll for a mixed-up field at the restart.

A Charles Leclerc crash on lap 24 of the Italian Grand Prix, with his Ferrari smashing into a tyre wall at pace, led to a red flag and the race being suspended for 27 minutes before being restarted.

Antonio Giovinazzi received the same sanction.

Hamilton, for reasons unclear at this stage, missed the pre-race anti-racism demonstration, and once the race started, what had been looking like a routine win for Hamilton turned on its head on Mercedes' fateful decision.

Valtteri Bottas started the season strong with a victory in Austria.

He rejoined 17th and last, 30 seconds adrift of Gasly.

Racing Point's Lance Stroll was third for his second career podium, with Lando Norris fourth in the second McLaren. However, since that race, the Finn hasn't been on the top step of the podium and has fallen back behind Max Verstappen in the championship.
