Lewis Hamilton makes 13 points against Sebastian Vettel. The Englishman also pulls away in the grade table. Monza winner Hamilton deserves a score of 10 and Vettel lost points in the first round.

Many of these breakdowns are no longer allowed to happen to Sebastian Vettel. Lewis Hamilton is on the way from victory to victory, from point to point. Even on routes where the omens are against him. That could cost Vettel the title. Hamilton showed a great performance in Monza. More than place 3 in the training was not possible against the superior Ferrari. And in the race he fought down Kimi Räikkönen when Vettel was out of the game. Hence the grade 10.

His opponent turned in a duel with Hamilton in the Roggia chicane. It's hard for the team to understand that Ferrari Räikkönen is letting his own race go and he got in the way of Vettel, but Vettel has to accept it. So the runner-up in the Roggia chicane got on the worse track and turned after a contact with the Mercedes in the middle of the field.

Vettel's objection that Hamilton could have been hit by him is certainly justified. But the subjunctive doesn't help much. With his chase to catch up in a badly damaged car, the Ferrari driver made up for a lot. The second fastest lap shows what would have been possible without the crash. The bottom line is three notes.

Grade 10 for Räikkönen's best Race of the Season

This time we also give Kimi Räikkönen a 10. the Finn showed Ferrari with the gas foot what they would lose on him if they sent him to the desert for Charles Leclerc. The pole position was well deserved, even though he enjoyed the best slipstream from the four riders at the front. The tyre problems were due to the circumstances. Raikkonen had to keep up the pace after his early pit stop. And he ran into a Valtteri Bottas who was briefed to spend as much time as possible on him. The tires protested.

Räikkönen drove alone against two Mercedes. Scenario two against one usually turns out badly for the lone fighter. It was also a miracle that Räikkönen managed to stay at the top until lap 43 despite the tyre problems. Monza was the best race of the season for the Finn. And his likely successor at Ferrari? Charles Leclerc goes home with a grade of 7.
