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.
