Vettel locked his tires on the first turn as the Ferrari of Felipe Massa pressured him from behind, but after that the German consolidated his advantage to beat Alonso and Red Bull teammate Mark Webber, who finished third.
With seven races remaining, it looks increasingly likely that Vettel will clinch a fourth straight Formula One title — unless he has an alarming drop in form or Ferrari finds a way to get faster.Felipe Massa, Fernando Alonso, Formula 1, Formula One, Italian GP, Italian Grand Prix, Mark Webber, Monza, Sebastian Vettel
Lewis Hamilton called himself an idiot after his worst qualifying drive this season left him starting 12th for the Italian Grand Prix on Sunday.
“I just drove like an idiot,” he said. “That’s the worst I’ve driven for a long, long time. I’m sorry to the team.”Formula 1, Italian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton
Vettel already leads Alonso by 46 points and will be confident of moving further clear of his rivals, given that Alonso starts Sunday’s race from fifth on the grid and Lewis Hamilton — who is third overall in the title race — from a lowly 12th.Formula 1, Italian Grand Prix, Monza, Red Bull Racing, Sebastian Vettel
