Having started the Italian Grand Prix from pole position in 2014, Lewis Hamilton failed start, fell back to 4th place, and the leaders came Nico Rosberg, who almost immediately began to break away from his pursuers, the closest of which were Kevin Magnussen and Felipe Massa. If the first time such a truncation cost him two seconds of lost benefits, the second time the error had deprived the German leading position. And after Hamilton came forward, the distance to the attacks, he himself did not let nobody up to the finish. Nico eventually crossed the line second, behind team-mate 7 points in the standings, but retained first place in the Championship standings by a margin of 22 points. And on the third step of the podium Felipe Massa, to which on the eve of team Williams has extended a contract for the 2015 season. In general, third in the race kicked off team-mate Brazilian Walter Bottas, but he started worse Hamilton fell back to tenth place. At one point, the Finn returned to the fourth position, but not too good pit stop threw him back again. Nevertheless, the speed of Williams at Monza proved is that Walter still saw the checkered flag in fourth place. Daniel Ricardo finished fifth again managed to spend a great race with a beautiful struggle and numerous overtaking. And the best qualifier Sebastian Vettel for a long time who went fifth, failed to resist the onslaught of the Australian and lost it on the road, being the sixth. No less beautiful and spectacular fight and gave Sergio Perez (7th), ahead of Jenson Button (8th place), which they changed positions several times. But if the fight with Briton was correct, then the attack Mexican Magnussen last pushed off the track, forcing him to turn sredat through a high curb. Judges have not disregarded the episode and Kevin punished five-second stop & go, and the second time in a row after the Belgian Grand Prix. Serve the penalty in the pit lane the driver did not go, so his result at the finish added time penalty that pushed it to the tenth position. As a result, one place played Kimi Raikkonen, who turned out in the minutes of the ninth. Unfortunately, for technical reasons it fizzled Fernando Alonso, who came seventh. For him, this gathering was the first since 2009, and interrupted a series of fifteen consecutive spectacle finishes.
