In a dramatic Italian Grand Prix which saw Pierre Gasly secure his maiden Formula 1 victory, a true classic was produced with stunning performances and controversial moments.

Following a penalty for Lewis Hamilton due to a Mercedes pitstop call error under the safety car with the pitlane entry closed because of Kevin Magnussen’s stricken Haas, the race was truly shaken up by a red flag for Charles Leclerc’s heavy crash at Parabolica.

The sequence of events led to Gasly charging to victory for AlphaTauri – the team’s first win since Sebastian Vettel’s triumph at the same circuit 12 years ago – as he held off McLaren’s Carlos Sainz Jr in a tense finish.

While there were talking points aplenty, the race weekend also marked the last in F1 for the Williams family having announced they would step down from the team after the Italian GP.

Autosport’s Grand Prix Editor Alex Kalinauckas is joined by Autosport’s F1 reporter Luke Smith, GP Racing Magazine Executive Editor Stuart Codling and Motorsport.com’s F1 Editor Jonathan Noble to dissect the chaotic race at Monza.
