A one-two for McLaren at Monza was a dream result for the team in the trying circumstances that surrounded the weekend. And for once, we saw a race where differing strategies created a bit of intrigue.
With four races to go Ferrari's drivers dropped further out of the picture, but it's closer than it was at the front, with everything to play for between the McLaren drivers, assuming that the FIA does not interfere with their fight.
McLaren's advantage was already apparent in the previous week's testing. Nevertheless Ferrari folk remained bullish about their prospects going into the race weekend, and indeed the red cars topped the times in the Friday morning.
