Red Bull’s Verstappen leads seven-time world champion, Hamilton, by five points at the top of the drivers’ standings as they both finished in the gravel following their crash halfway through the race. It is the second time that a collision with Hamilton has seen the Dutchman knocked out of a race.

Hamilton was exiting the pits on Lap 26 of 53 when he arrived alongside Verstappen, the pair going side by side through the Variante del Rettifilo, but making contact, with Verstappen flying through the air and coming to rest on top of the Mercedes. Both drivers were unhurt, but out of the race

Ricciardo had pledged “total attack” after starting from second on the grid and the 32-year-old Australian made the most of the most dramatic moment of an eventful race when Hamilton re-entered the Monza track from the pit lane.

Verstappen tried to dart past Hamilton just after the Briton’s pit stop but ended up with his back wheel rolling over the top of his rival’s Mercedes, narrowly missing Hamilton’s head.

Both drivers then slid into the gravel and were forced to retire from the race, which Hamilton was hoping to make his 100th Grand Prix victory.
