The English Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) took the leadership of the Formula 1 World Championship after winning the Italian Grand Prix, the thirteenth of the twenty that make up the championship, in which the German Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) could only be third in Monza.
Hamilton, who on Saturday had broken the all-time pole record in F.1 by reaching 69 and sidelining German Michael Schumacher by one, led a new double for Mercedes, winning ahead of his Finnish teammate Valtteri Bottas.
The Englishman achieved his sixth victory of the season and now leads the World Cup with 238 points, three more than the four-time German world champion.
