The Formula One season is down to just six more rounds after the past weekend’s Italian Grand Prix and the contenders for the championship are starting to seem less hopeful than they did a short while ago. Why? Well once again in dominant fashion Sebastien Vettel and the Red Bull Racing squad took the victory in Monza which brings the young German that much closer to clinching his second straight championship. Jenson Button grabbed second place and Fernando Alonso took third on Ferrari’s home turf. It is very likely that Vettel will mathmatically eliminate all contenders from the title at the next race in Singapore. Guys like Fernando and Lewis Hamilton have pretty much given up on their championship hopes for this year and are now focusing on race wins to try and finish as high as possible in the final standings.
Looks like the rest of the season will be a fight for second place folks! For a full Italian Grand Prix post race report check out SPEED.
