Had the tifosi been in the house for the Italian Grand Prix, they would have been treated to their own national anthem - Il Canto degli Italiani - at the end of the race. Flares, flags and fans alike will have all sprawled across the track in celebration - but without a Ferrari driver to be seen.
Last year, the Italian national anthem rang out in deference to Ferrari's Charles Leclerc and his overwhelmingly popular victory. But this year, it serenaded Pierre Gasly's surprise run to the top step, while Ferrari suffered arguably one of its most miserable, apathetic and downright lacklustre performances of its Formula 1 tenure.
In isolation, Sebastian Vettel's early brake failure and Leclerc's heavy crash at the Parabolica were both bad enough. Ferrari's hopes were dashed by half-distance, and it was a legacy of Leclerc's crash that set Gasly on his course towards a famous and unexpected victory. But Ferrari's rotten performance extended beyond the race; every single session at Monza told a story of toil for the team that had bested its competition last year in swaggering style.
