Daniel Ricciardo has won the Italian Grand Prix, with Lando Norris making it a 1-2 for the team.


  • The McLaren driver overtook Max Verstappen for the lead at the start of the race, and managed to capitalize from race circumstances to take the victory.
  • His teammate, Lando Norris, finished behind him, making it a 1-2 finish result for the team.

What he had to say:

  • “It worked well for me yesterday and I knew, to be honest, even if we got that great start, it wasn’t a guarantee we would lead the entire race (…) I don’t think anybody expected that.”
  • “The August break was good to reset, I felt better the last three weekends, and to not only win but get a 1-2 is insane for McLaren.”
