For nine laps, it looked as if the Ferrari Formula 1 team might have something almighty to celebrate in the Tuscan Grand Prix - the event it was marking as its 1000th world championship race.
Once the real race had finally got underway after the first lap pile-up and safety car restart nonsense, Lewis Hamilton led Valtteri Bottas, with Charles Leclerc following in third. Charles Leclerc, in a Ferrari SF1000, in third on lap nine. That hasn't happened at any other point in the 2020 season thanks to the car's limitations.
Leclerc had hauled it to stunning surprise podiums at the Red Bull Ring and Silverstone - but, on both occasions, he needed something unexpected to get him onto the rostrum. This time, he had capitalised on the start shenanigans after taking a shock fifth on the grid. He was helped by Esteban Ocon's late Q3 spin, sure, but that was still a great lap and achievement.
