* 20-place grid penalty for causing an avoidable accident


Outside of Lando Norris' dominance at the top, racing at Mugello was nothing short of excellent.

From the first minutes of practice, it was clear that Lando Norris would win the Italian Grand Prix. He knew it, the media members know it, the fans knew it and his rivals on the track certainly knew it.

Still, they made him earn his win. Championship leader Artem Markelov took an early lead and managed to fight off Norris for a couple of laps before eventually just not being able to hang with Norris.

Even with the one-sided fight for the win, it was still a very exciting event for the fans. Overtaking and counter-overtaking was the order of the day, there was hardly a lap without a change in position.

This hot-headed racing left some drivers quite heated. Sebastian Vettel was very angry with Jules Bianchi, who took him out and received a grid penalty for his troubles; Roger Ibe and Sho Tsuboi collided as well.
