Italian Grand Prix

Stewart's Championship Monza, Italy, September 9th The Italian Grand Prix produced the first Team Lotus one-two result for some six years, but the race around Monza's famous, if "chicane" bedevilled track, will be remembered as one of Stewart's classic races. An early pit stop with a flat tyre on his Tyrrell cost him just over a minute and dropped him to 19th place. The Scot refused to accept...
