In this Pits to Podium segment of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil and Kunal celebrate Ricciardo's win (without a shoey, sadly!), analyse the Verstappen-Hamilton crash and the subsequent FIA's penalty for Verstappen. What side of the fence are you on? Is it a Hamilton's fault, Verstappen's fault or a racing incident?
For us, it's clear that the FIA needs to hit refresh and treat racing incidents as exactly that - racing incidents. First Silverstone, now Monza - will the title rivals come together again. And if they do, will the FIA be trigger happy with penalties as they've been yet?
@F1StatsGuru (Sundaram) delivers a mighty stats review - one that is bolstered by Mclaren's performance - one that saw them win and finish 1-2 in the 2021 Italian Grand Prix on merit. Also - overtaking in Monza was almost impossible unless you were Valtteri Bottas. Tune in!
