Ricciardo Wins the Italian Grand Prix
Results are in!
12th September 2021
Another fascinating chapter in this epic season as both title rivals failed to finish after colliding into each other. On top of that we had McLaren battling for victory all race long with Ricciardo taking the win ahead of Norris, giving McLaren their first 1-2 in over a decade. Bottas came home 3rd after an impressive recovery from starting nearly at the back.
Bonus points wise, with Bottas starting the race from P18 (after GAS and TSU started from the pit lane) and finishing P3 he collected a massive 45 bonus points. Russell bagged 15 bonus points, coming home an impressive P9. Plenty of other drivers brought home some handy bonus points too, see the full list below.
For the rest of the Fantasy GP predictions, we had Verstappen on Pole (after Bottas’ penalties), Ricciardo took the Fastest Lap, we had 3 Safety Car periods and for the Bonus Question we asked which grid position would take victory, with Ricciardo winning the race and starting 2nd – the correct answer was B) – 2nd.
