Pierre Gasly takes maiden F1 win ahead of Carlos Sainz and Lance Stroll as usual suspects suffer at Monza
2020 continues to be one of the strangest years in living memory, and from a sporting perspective, the podium at the Italian Grand Prix certainly fits that description.
After a run of 146 races – stretching back some seven and a half years to Kimi Räikkönen’s victory for Lotus at the Australian Grand Prix in March 2013 – a team other than Mercedes, Red Bull or Ferrari won a Formula 1 race.
Not only that, but there also wasn’t a single Mercedes, Red Bull or Ferrari on the podium. But there was the Italian national anthem.
