2015 Italian GP Post-Race Stats

Magnificent Monza? Not so much, a bit of a slow Italian GP. It started and finished well but once everyone had pitted there was very little action on track.

Lewis Hamilton topped every practice session, every qualifying session, won the race and led every single lap of the race, but then we didn’t find out if he actually won it for another two and a half hours. Sebastian Vettel finished the race in second place and Felipe Massa was third. Nico Rosberg was in third and had a good shot at second but his engine decided to become a fireplace just three laps from the end.

Hamilton won his 40th race and the 30th for Mercedes since 2010 but their 39th win overall. A ridiculous 168 places worth of grid penalties were awarded at the Italian GP and 405 in total this season, compared to the 198 given in 2014. Daniel Ricciardo gained the most places in the race, he qualified in 15th, started 19th after a 50 place grid penalty (makes sense right?) and then finished in eighth, gaining 11 places, one on the final lap.

Lotus suffered a double retirement on the first lap for the third time this season, not a good race for them. After the two Lotus cars retiring every other driver was classified as finishing, Alonso and Rosberg both suffered mechanical issues late on but completed over 90% of the race so were still classified as having finished.


Not many changes here as usual, Massa has moved up to fourth ahead of Raikkonen and the Force India duo of Perez and Hulkenberg have both moved up one position, pushing Verstappen down two.


Hamilton is getting a big lead now, up to 53 points, Vettel is now closer to Rosberg than Rosberg is to Hamilton. The two Williams drivers and Raikkonen are still incredibly close for fourth to sixth, as are Ricciardo and Kvyat for seventh and eighth.
