After a disappointing race Nico Hulkenberg revealed his team had discovered damage on his car which “affected the performance badly”.

Here’s more Sunday scraps from the Italian Grand Prix via Twitter.

Stefano Domenicali was in the paddock for the first time since April, when he resigned as Ferrari team principal.

Feeder series

Alex Lynn and Jolyon Palmer made important steps towards winning the GP3 and GP2 titles respectively, while Sergio Canamasas was black-flagged in the GP2 race after some dangerous driving.

Race

Nico Rosberg’s lead was halved on lap nine, as he slalomed around the polystyrene blocks at the first chicane. A repeat, twenty laps later, would prove more costly, gifting the lead to Lewis Hamilton.

Just like on his way to a podium finish here two years ago, Sergio Perez showed impressive awareness of the position of his front wing. Here he retook eighth from former team mate Jenson Button.

After the chequered flag

Toto and Susie Wolff had reasons to celebrate after their teams occupied the top four positions for the second time this season.

Drivers’ reaction

Max Chilton crashed out of the race early on, recording only his second retirement in Formula One. But at least he did not take his team mate with him this time.

  1. Ricciardo grows on me from GP to GP. Both his great moves on-track and his character and charisma off-track really make it easy for me to start rooting for him. Those tweets from him are great.

    1. Indeed, and he’s a slow-burner too.

      I noticed a Bianchi, a Hülkenberg, a Bottas a lot earlier than him, he just flew in under the radar in the HRT and in the Toro Rosso. It was probably the first time I misjudged a driver very badly. Initially thought of him as a new Buemi, Fisichella, etc.

      1. He was close to that scenario. Luckily he grab the chance with his both hands. Good for him and for F1 of course.

      2. I seam to remember him being impressive in the first young drivers test he did in a Red Bull.

        1. @slo-mo

          I recall that his fastest lap was notably faster than Seb’s Pole Position in the same car.

          I know circumstances are different; different days, better set up, maybe… But that had to be a big flag to the RBR team that Daniel had something big to offer.

  2. Hulk had to have some kind of fault in his car because his performances in the past couple weekends have been atrocious, completely out of kilter with the rest of the season, not to mention his race last year.

  3. Charles Bradley’s head looks like a coconut, I can never unsee it.

    Also commiserations to Jamie, hope they get caught.
