Hamilton triumphs in Italian GP as Ferrari flounder

Italy Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton Italy Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton has a 17-point lead in the championship ahead of the race at Monza

Vettel, who finished fourth and now trails Hamilton by 30 points, laid the blame on Hamilton after the race but the Mercedes driver was confident he had done nothing wrong.

Pole-sitter Raikkonen looked set to win his first race in more than five years - and Ferrari's first in their homeland since 2010 - but Hamilton executed a brilliant pass on the Finn with just eight laps remaining.

It was a tough stage for Hamilton with the Monza crowd of over 100,000 fans all decked out in the red of Ferrari but the Mercedes driver showed champion's credentials. Unfortunately, I was the one that spun around, which is ironic'. We still got a lot of points so it could have been a lot worse today.

Lewis Hamilton believes the intensity of his Formula One fight with Sebastian Vettel is the greatest he has ever experienced. I had no other chance than to run into him and make contact.

"For sure I think we had the speed [to win] but then the tyre went and there was nothing left in the end on the left rear", Raikkonen said after the race.

"It's only half the job done, tomorrow is a very important part, so hopefully we can get another great result, said Raikkonen, who will start in pole position for just the second time in his F1 career".

Vettel had to pit for a new front wing and then fought through to fifth on the road, before gaining another place via a penalty for Max Verstappen.

Congress bids farewell to Senator John McCain
Trump, who tweeted from the White House, did not stay long enough to watch the McCain services from the president's mansion. Senate with McCain - where the two had frequent partisan differences - said, "I always thought of John as a brother".

"I tried to obviously get out from there but I couldn't".

"I think Lewis obviously saw a little bit around the outside".

"It just damaged the vehicle a little bit but I was able to continue and the rear was moving around a little bit more so it made it a little bit more hard, but not impossible".

The race stewards investigated and ruled the crash a normal "racing incident" that merited no further action.

"I'm not too anxious", he told reporters after finishing fourth in an Italian Grand Prix won by his Mercedes rival.

The victor was also helped considerably by team mate Valtteri Bottas who led after Hamilton pitted and managed to hold up Raikkonen long enough for the other Mercedes to close the gap. I am guessing he locked up, we touched, it was a brief moment, damaged the vehicle a little bit but I could continue. We have to deliver results like this more often. "So, I really enjoyed it thoroughly, to be honest".

"Hamilton gave him all the room. Then I got used to it and drove around it but when I got out of the auto I was surprised myself". The close competition is great for the sport, and it is pushing us to limits that we didn't even know we could go to.
