Hamilton dominates at Monza

Author: Staff Reporter Updated: 13:30 07-09-2017

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton dominated in the Italian Grand Prix, claiming the championship lead for the first time this season.

He claimed the first set of back-to-back wins this year after a dominant victory in Belgium a week prior.

As Hamilton celebrated his forth Italian GP victory on the podium, he was booed by the fiery Monza crowd. As cited by Skysports, Hamilton mentioned that he respected the passion of the crowd saying, "I love it here in Italy and I love the passion of the fans.

"They're fantastic. I'm happy, we did a great job, the team did an exceptional job. We owe it all to them. Mercedes power is definitely better than Ferrari power.

"This energy is like nowhere else we really get to see, apart from maybe Silverstone. So I respect it, I appreciate it” he added.

Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel delivered a message in Italian to the passionate supporters who cheered loudly at the sight of him. Vettel was beaten by over half a minute to claim third place and is now three points behind Hamilton.

Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas secured a second position.
