Very different marks for the two title contenders headline our assessment of a Monza weekend in which some drivers who have often disappointed in 2018 raised their games.
This stands among Hamilton's finest victories, reliant on him making two key overtaking manoeuvres and piling the pressure on a Ferrari team that expected to win. Although Vettel spun after contact with Hamilton, the pass on the opening lap at the second chicane was legitimate. Hamilton's pace advantage over team-mate Valtteri Bottas confirms that this was a weekend on which he was at his irresistible best.
Bottas's deficit to Hamilton in qualifying was partly thanks to the lack of a tow, but throughout the weekend he didn't look to have the speed of his team-mate. He lost a place to Verstappen at the first corner tamely, then briefly fell behind Grosjean, and couldn't get past Verstappen in the first stint. But he subsequently did a good job to keep Raikkonen behind him and drew a penalty-inducing error out of Verstappen. Dogged rather than dynamic.
