Solid P5 and P6 finishes for the team in Monza, on a day when we had the third-fastest car in the field behind Red Bull and Ferrari
George made a strong start to run P4 for the early part of the race, defending strongly from Perez until eventually ceding position to the faster Red Bull.
George pitted on lap 19, incurring a five-second penalty when re-joining the race, but a strong, well-managed stint meant it cost him no positions.
Lewis ran an offset strategy by starting on the Hard tyre, running longer than most runners before pitting to Medium tyres just after half distance.
Rejoining in P10, he was able to quickly pass Alonso, then close in on the battle between Albon and the two McLaren drivers.
Minor contact with Piastri on lap 41 meant he incurred a five-second penalty, but the tyre offset meant he was able to pass Norris and Albon on track for P6, then build the necessary gap to maintain his position in the final standings.
The team scored 18 points today and now holds a 45-point advantage over Ferrari, who climbed to P3 in the constructors’ championship today.
