Gran Premio d'Italia
Autodromo Nazionale Monza, Monza, Italy
Race Distance: 53 laps, 306.720 km

As one of the three circuits on the schedule that were also on the schedule back in 1950's first F1 championship, Monza is one of the quintessential F1 tracks. Built in 1922 it featured an incredible oval and a high-speed road course. Today the oval is unused, and the road course has been drastically slowed with chicanes for safety, but remains the fastest track on the Formula 1 schedule. Long straights result in special low-drag bodywork for the race, giving the cars the top speed needed for low lap times, but also means low grip in the corners that test the drivers' skill.
After an enthralling and action-packed race, Charles Leclerc managed to hold off both Mercedes cars to win for the second consecutive weekend, and provide Ferrari with their first Monza win since 2010. In the process he has now passed Sebastian Vettel in the Driver's standings and is within 3 points of Max Verstappen. Valtteri Bottas picked up second and Lewis Hamilton had to settle for third and a Fastest Lap point, despite looking the most likely to deny Leclerc's win.

After a long run of poor results lightsOUT wins the round, while afsaenz9 (the week's biggest position gainer with 5 places) and Chris S share second on the podium. curley stays in front in the overall standings, and Reno Stack, on the basis of 3 more Fastest Lap points than DP#1, just manages to stay in second. The top seven, when factoring in Fastest Lap points are as follows: curley: 617, Reno Stack: 588, DP#1: 586, Arun: 580, Doug Santo: 573, Georgethefierce: 570, and lightsOUT: 566.
