Charles LeClerc gave the tifosi a reason to cheer as he cliched victory at the Italian Grand Prix. The Monegasque driver held off attacks from both Mercedes drivers to cross the finish line first. Unfortunately, Ferrari’s attack was not quite two-pronged, as Sebastian Vettel spun off early. In the process of rejoining, he tagged an unsuspecting Lance Stroll into a spin of his own.
However, coming back to Charles LeClerc, he overcame repeated attacks from the Silver Arrows. For most of the race, it was Lewis Hamilton on his tail, but soon, the 5-time World Champion dropped off. Then, Valtteri Bottas took over and tried to attack, but LeClerc’s defence was rock solid.
YEEEESSSS! TWO IN A ROW 😍 GRANDE CHARLES!
