LEWIS HAMILTON, 1ST - FELIPI MASSA, 3RD - SEBASTIAN VETTEL, 2ND
The Monza track in Italy is a great, fast, oldtime track that I like very much. Formula One is penalty nuts. They levied 168 penalties against the drivers before the race even started. The race ended with a possibility of penalties against the two Mercedes cars. That was cleared up finally. It was interesting that both Mercedes cars had deflated left rear tires at the start. Formula One form of 'deflategate.'
Lewis Hamilton won by 25+ seconds. Instead of being able to back off at the end Mercedes urged him to push to the end in case they got a time penalty for the tires. Monza is Ferrari-land and Vettel made everyone happy by coming in second in his Ferrari. I was very happy to see Massa come in third. He is very popular there because of his many years with Ferrari. Ferrari dumped him which is why he is popular with me. I am happy to see him doing so well.
Nico Hulkenberg came in 7th and he has signed a two year deal with Force India. A deal that will allow him to also race in the Le Mans series.
