Italian Grand Prix: Lewis Hamilton seizes on Sebastian Vettel's error

Vettel continues to outpace Hamilton, but gap shrinks

Raikkonen led a Ferrari 1-2 with teammate Sebastian Vettel in qualifying but was left defending his lead from Mercedes driver Hamilton, after Vettel spun while battling the Briton on the opening lap.

Hamilton then overtook pole sitter Kimi Raikkonen twice on his way to win the race.

Hamilton sealed his 68 career victory with a clinical move around Kimi Raikkonen into Turn 1, having reeled him in with a succession of scintillating laps as Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas backed Raikkonen into the reigning champion's grasp.

Lewis Hamilton said winning the Italian Grand Prix and extending his championship lead to 30 points was beyond his hopes going into the race. Unfortunately, our race was compromised and it was a shame, but then I tried to do my best and had a decent recovery from the back. I left him room.

Multiple teams interested in Josh Donaldson
If he's claimed, there's no chance the Blue Jays will pull him back and keep him and according to Jon Morosi of , the St. Still, those are the only two times Donaldson has appeared in games since May, so he remains something of an unknown for 2018.

"I wouldn't say it was really a miracle today I think and before the race as you can see out there, there's a lot of Ferrari fans obviously and there's a lot of that negative sound that you hear, that just encourages me, it energises me and also particularly when go around there's quite a lot of British fans around".

Bottas finished third just ahead of Vettel and Verstappen, who would have been on the podium had he not received a five-second penalty for causing a collision with the Finnish driver. "I tried, but it was impossible".

"Lewis saw the gap round the outside but he didn't leave me any space".

"I think it was 100 per cent Sebastian's fault", Rosberg told Sky F1. Racing resumed on lap four as the stewards announced they were taking no action, declaring it a "racing incident". There are many points to win back now in the championship, but we still have time to improve and we have the margin to recover.

Cynthia Nixon and NY Governor Andrew Cuomo Get Intense During Debate
This could explain the freaky comment he made about America never being great, for which he was bombarded by left and right . Cuomo, who some think could run for president in 2020, said he would not seek out the Oval Office if he was re-elected.

In more orchestrated circumstances, Ferrari would have done everything to ensure Vettel started on pole with Raikkonen riding shotgun behind. "We did a few laps but after that it was like having a day in the office when you don't have too much work to do - I was even snoozing in the vehicle at one point! "

Once again, Vettel's temperament was called into question after a collision that some pundits felt might have been avoided; he viewed it differently, of course. "So I don't take anything from it and I know how it is to be in that emotion, and I'm sure he didn't mean too much by it".

"It is very, very easy to allow it to get to you, to allow it to have an impact on your life and have you think about it, all these different things".

"We have Vettel who is the Ronaldo of formula one and Kimi who is a great friend".
