Daniel Ricciardo wins Italian GP after Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen smash

Daniel Ricciardo emerged victorious at a dramatic Italian Grand Prix which saw Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen crash out.

Ricciardo started the race in second position but overtook Verstappen on the first turn and his victory at Monza was rarely in doubt.

Much of the post-race talk, though, will centre around a collision between title rivals Hamilton and Verstappen on the second turn of the 26th lap.

An unusually long pit-stop for Verstappen had pushed him down from second place to 10th place, and a short time later his Red Bull was colliding with Hamilton's Mercedes — an incident which ended with the Dutchman's car on top of the seven-time world champion's.

After the race, Ricciardo said: "The August break was good just to reset, I felt better the last three weekends. And to not only win but to get a one-two… For McLaren to be on the podium is huge, let alone a one-two. I'm for once, lost for words."

Valtteri Bottas placed third behind Lando Norris in second.
