Max Verstappen wins Italian Grand Prix 2023

Max Verstappen has won the Italian Grand Prix and sets a new record for the most consecutive wins in Formula 1 history with 10. Sergio Perez made it a Red Bull 1-2 after he got ahead of Carlos Sainz following a fierce battle with the Ferrari driver in the closing stages.

With Leclerc fourth, George Russell was fifth despite being issued a five-second time penalty for gaining an advantage off the track. Lewis Hamilton recovered to sixth place on the road and also overcame a five-second punishment for making contact with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri. Alexander Albon was seventh, fending off Lando Norris who was stuck in the rear mirrors of the Williams driver for much of the Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso was ninth, while Valtteri Bottas took Alfa Romeo’s first points since Canada.
