The 2014 Italian Grand Prix (formally known as the Formula 1 Gran Premio d'Italia 2014)[1] was a Formula One motor race held on the 7 September 2014 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza in Monza, Italy.[2] The race was the thirteenth round of the 2014 season, and the eighty-fourth running of the Italian Grand Prix.

Report

Background

For the third consecutive year, Formula One tyre supplier Pirelli brought its two hardest tyre compounds to the Italian Grand Prix, with the orange-banded hard compound tyre being the harder "prime" tyre, and the white-banded medium compound tyre being the softer "option" tyre for the race weekend. This was the first race of Formula One on the newly redesigned Parabolica that included a new run off tarmac area.

Qualifying

Lewis Hamilton qualified on pole, with his teammate Nico Rosberg starting in 2nd. This was Hamilton's first pole position since the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix seven races previously, having suffered from a wide array of issues or mistakes in the last seven qualifying sessions. Hamilton said it was a "relief" to have had his first clean qualifying session for a while.[3]

Race

Hamilton lost 3 places and fell to 4th by the first corner after a poor start that was caused by a glitch in his start procedure.[4] This allowed Rosberg into 1st position, and Kevin Magnussen and Felipe Massa into 2nd and 3rd respectively. On lap 5 Magnussen was passed by both Massa and Hamilton in close succession. On lap 9 Rosberg missed the chicane and lost over a second, and on the following lap Hamilton passed Massa around the outside into the turn 1 chicane to move into 2nd place, just over 2 seconds behind Rosberg. Hamilton proceeded to chip away at Rosberg's lead over the following laps, closing in to just over a second behind Rosberg by lap 23. Rosberg and Hamilton pitted on lap 25 and 26 respectively, emerging in the same positions as before. As lap 29 began Hamilton was 0.7 seconds behind Rosberg, and heading into the first corner Rosberg missed the chicane again, allowing Hamilton up into 1st. This lap also saw Hamilton set the fastest lap of the race. On the same lap Alonso retired due to an engine problem.[5] This was Alonso's first mechanical failure since the 2010 Malaysian Grand Prix. Daniel Ricciardo once again outraced Sebastian Vettel after they were running different tyre strategies and Ricciardo overtook Vettel late in the race on lap 47, with the two drivers finishing 5th and 6th respectively. Hamilton went on to win the race.[6][7]
