On Sunday it was time to worship at the Temple of Speed, and the devoted Ferrari fans arrived at Monza with the dream that Charles Leclerc could repeat his success of seven days earlier. He did exactly that, in another fine performance that will surely see him placed pretty high up in F1i's driver ratings for the 2019 Italian Grand Prix...

Carlos Sainz (Retired, lap 27): 8.5/10
Last week it was his McLaren team mate Lando Norris who suffered a heartbreaking retirement while running in the points, but this time it was Carlos Sainz who felt the pain of missing out. After finishing second in the changeable conditions of FP1 (he came close to topping the session until Charles Leclerc snatched it away at the very end) Sainz went on to make it through to the final round of qualifying and was the only driver to get a second run after the farcical finish to proceedings. In the race he lost a position at the congested start but soon found himself running a consistent sixth place and looked set to finish in that position right up until his ill-fated pit stop that saw him emerge from pit lane with a sub-optimal number of wheels attached to the MCL34. That left him no option other than to stop immediately and park the car, making him an unhappy spectator on the sidelines for the remainder of the race.
