2021 Italian GP

After Super Max thumping loudly in the Zandvoort stands we arrive at Monza for the 2021 Italian GP! Monza featured the 2nd Sprint Race of the Season. While Mercedes were considered the favorites on this track, the race results proved otherwise. We got the surprise McLaren 1-2 with Ricciardo winning and Lando claiming P2. With both Max and Lewis out of the race there was no one to keep the Papaya boys in check. Bottas in the meanwhile was cutting through the field and went on to claim P3.
