Daniel Ricciardo climbed 12 places from his starting position to finish fourth in the Italian Grand Prix, which was the biggest gain of any driver in the race.
Often drivers who make up large numbers of places do most of it at the start, but this wasn’t the case for Ricciardo, who gained only one position on the first lap. He made steady gains from there on, however, ultimately catching and passing Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari for fourth place.
Max Verstappen was running ahead of Ricciardo in the other Red Bull before picking up damage while trying to pass Felipe Massa’s Williams. Had it not been for that, he might have had a chance of beating Sebastian Vettel for the final podium position.
