Who won the 2021 Italian GP?
The 2021 Italian GP was an eventful race, as Monza saw a McLaren one-two with Daniel Ricciardo claiming a sensational win ahead of Lando Norris, while Max Verstappen parked his Red Bull on the head of Lewis Hamilton in the Mercedes.
Ricciardo had passed pole sitter Verstappen at the start of the race, he went on to lead McLaren teammate Norris to the chequered flag for a famous win, after Verstappen and Hamilton came together.
In scenes reminiscent of an action movie, Hamilton, coming out of the pits on Lap 26, arrived side-by-side with title rival Max Verstappen at the Variante del Rettifilo and the pair made contact.
That then saw Verstappen’s Red Bull fly through the air and land on top of Hamilton’s Mercedes, putting both drivers out of the race.
Valterri Bottas came from 19th on the grid to take the final podium position after Red Bull’s Sergio Perez was handed a five-second penalty for gaining a place off track.
