Sebastian Vettel ended a 16-year winless run for Renault-engined cars at Monza thanks to his commanding performance in last weekend's Italian Grand Prix.
Not since Johnny Herbert's 1995 victory in a Renault-powered Benetton had the French manufacturer tasted success at Monza, while Jean Alesi in 1997 was the most recent driver to start a grand prix from pole position with such an engine at the track.

The German's win also went some way to erasing the Monza curse from Red Bull's history. Prior to last weekend the team had never had a pole, a win, a podium, or even a lap in front at the circuit. Vettel overturned all four statistics emphatically.
Vettel's pole was his 25th in Formula 1 from just 75 starts - making it one every three races. His victory was the 18th of his grand prix career, putting him equal 13th in the all-time list with Kimi Raikkonen. His 31st career podium equalled Jack Brabham in 28th spot.
