Hamilton celebrates in Monza, Vettel crashes

World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton destroys the dream of home win for Ferrari at the Italian Grand Prix. Even worse: World Cup rival Sebastian Vettel missed the podium after early crash with Hamilton.

Sebastian Vettel stomped after the debacle of Monza with drooping shoulders and a thick sunglasses in front of the eyes of the press. While his rival Lewis Hamilton celebrated his sweetest win of the season in Italy, the Heppenheimer had to declare the next bitter setback in the fight for the title. After a crash in the first round with Hamilton Vettel had no chance on home win in Monza.

While Vettel fell after the crash at the end of the field, in front of the eyes of Piero Ferrari, son of the legendary company founder, Hamilton could continue to chase ahead pole setter Kimi Raikkonen.

And over time he managed to overtake the second man in the Ferrari. In the 45th round it was time. At the end of the start and finish straight, Hamilton sat next to the Finn and used his incredible braking skills to take the lead.

After that, Hamilton cruised lightly and easily to victory. "That's disappointing, but I could not do anything," said Raikkonen, whose tires were fading in the end. His second place is "far from ideal".
