Stats: flying Vettel matches Alonso
The world champion's third win in Italy elevates him to third-equal on the all-time F1 winners' list. And that's not the German's only Monza milestone, as MICHELE MERLINO reveals
Sebastian Vettel's Italian Grand Prix win was his 32nd career Formula 1 victory, which puts him level with Fernando Alonso in the fourth all-time spot. Only Michael Schumacher (91), Alain Prost (51) and Ayrton Senna (41) have more.
This was Vettel's third win at Monza, all three obtained in the same way - from pole and leading exactly 49 laps each time. The German can now count the same number of Italian GP wins as Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Ronnie Peterson, Alain Prost, Rubens Barrichello and Nelson Piquet (who also won the only Italian GP held at Imola, in 1980). Michael Schumacher holds the record with five wins at Monza.
