GP Week : Issue 227
in the second half. The only real interest came courtesy of the two Williams drivers, who battled for third place in the final laps. It left Massa to proclaim that he was too old for all that after the race, though television coverage successfully managed to avoid showing as much of the dice as possible. Daniel Ricciardo climbed from 19th into the top ten, taking Marcus Ericsson heading into the Parabolica on the final lap to steal eighth. Daniil Kvyat in the second Red Bull was tenth, and while the results are far from what the team expects they should be treated as a success given both drivers had engine changes – in Ricciardo's case two of them. Almost within sight of the flag, and with a battle with his teammate shaping up, Fernando Alonso was force out of the race, though given he would have been squabbling for 14th it hardly seemed a disaster. Joining Alonso and Rosberg on the sidelines were the two Lotus', both of which were eliminated at the first corner. Though they both struggled around for the opening lap they retired soon after – Pastor Maldonado with a broken floor and Romain Grosjean with damaged rear suspension. Both drivers had been innocent parties in the first corner scrum, the result coming as a rather too sudden bump back to earth following the high of Grosjean's third place in Belgium. With Monza the last of the true power circuits things will likely look slightly different in Singapore. Red Bull, with fresh engines, should be stronger for a start with Williams more than likely struggling in comparison. McLaren too should have a more competitive weekend, though that's not difficult. The Mercedes will be strong, as they are everywhere, but the hotter conditions should play to the strengths of the Ferrari. 22 GPWEEK.com // 22 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> ITALY PARTNERS:
