And here’s Lewis Hamilton: “Congratulations to Max, he did a fantastic job today – just solid work from him. And also to Lando, what an awesome job and it’s so good to see McLaren back up there. On my side it was not the greatest days, it’s the first time I’ve made a mistake in a long time. But I’m grateful I was able to bring the car home today.
“A bit unfortunate but I’m really really grateful we were able to get going again, and to get some points for the team was really important today.”

Max Verstappen speaks: “It was very challenging out there, especially the beginning. I think we managed everything well, despite the small moment at my restart. It’s a long season, got to stay calm!”

Well that was one helluva race. Despite the lack of any sorts of contest for first place, we had rain, crashes, spins, red flags, and overtakes in abundance. Latifi crashed out in the first lap, Perez and Vettel both earned 10sec penalties, Hamilton looked to have ended his afternoon by skidding into the gravel, and Bottas and Russell escaped unharmed after a huge crash – and all before the at the midway point!

Max Verstappen wins the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix
The Red Bull driver, flawless today, sails over the finish line 22secs ahead of Hamilton, who did brilliantly to recover after a mid-race disaster. Norris, Leclerc, Sainz, Ricciardo, Stroll, Gasly, Raikkonen and Ocon make up the top 10.
