Five talking points from the Italian Grand Prix

A five-place grid penalty was never likely to derail Max Verstappen at Monza, and so it proved as Red Bull’s ace came from seventh to score a dominant victory at the Italian Grand Prix. The reigning champion popped the dreams of the amassed Tifosi who were hoping Charles Leclerc could convert yet another pole position into a glorious home win for Ferrari, in the 100th anniversary year of the circuit in the Royal Park. Instead, Verstappen claimed a 30th career Formula 1 victory, his 11th of the season and fifth in succession. No one can touch him right now as he glides serenely towards a second world title.
