The Italian Grand Prix was not a humdinger, but it was a masterful display of racecraft by Lewis Hamilton, who was the dominant force once again. This time there was no challenge from Nico Rosberg, struggling with an engine that already had five race distances under its belt. The leading challenger was Sebastian Vettel, but the Ferrari seemed to lose the extra pace that had appeared in qualifying. Nico looked like catching Seb at the end of the race but his engine finally blew. The race was spoilt a little by a post-race kerfuffle over tyre pressures, but the FIA Stewards did the right thing – and kept things in perspective.

GP+ is the fastest magazine in the Formula 1 world. This edition was delayed by the FIA Stewards discussing whether or not to punish Lewis Hamilton but it was still published within six hours of the flag – not bad for a 98-page magazine with all the news from Monza, plus some fascinating feature material. The magazine come stop you in PDF format, which means that you can read it and keep it, even if you are not online. It works with computers, tablets and even smartphones, but it’s a racing magazine in the traditional style, telling you what happened and not simply feeding you bite-sized stories. It goes right to the heart of the sport, inside the F1 Paddock.
Our team is at every race and we get to the people that matter.
