The last time a Ferrari driver won at home in Monza was 2010, but talented 21-year-old Charles Leclerc changed all that on Sunday with a strong drive.
Leclerc took the win from pole but had anything but an easy run to the flag. He was pushed by Hamilton for the first two-thirds as the British driver put everything into trying to pass him. Valtteri Bottas took up the challenge in the closing laps after a mistake from the world champion. But Ferrari had a distinct edge in pace.
