Nico Rosberg beats Lewis Hamilton to secure back-to-back wins and close world title gap in Italian Grand Prix


Rosberg won the Italian Grand Prix virtually unchallenged Sunday after Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton wasted pole position with a poor start‭.‬

 

Hamilton got off the line at the same time as the other cars but immediately fell behind‭, ‬dropping to sixth before the first corner‭. ‬Rosberg‭, ‬who started second‭, ‬took the early lead and cruised to his seventh win of the season‭, ‬second straight this year and first of his career at the storied Monza circuit‭, ‬which has hosted more Formula One racing than any other track‭.‬

 

 

Rosberg also cut Hamilton’s championship lead to two points with seven races remaining‭.‬

 

Hamilton climbed his way back to finish second‭.‬

 

“Obviously the start wasn’t great but it’s still a great day for Mercedes Benz and I’m glad to be a part of it‭,‬”‭ ‬Hamilton said‭. ‬Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen crossed third and fourth‭, ‬respectively‭.‬
