2022 Italian GP

Max and Red Bull continue their campaign of domination at Monza, the temple of speed at 2022 Italian GP. No matter what Ferrari did, the hard pill to swallow is that Max was just unstoppable at Monza. 

This race was also the debut of Nyck de Vries who gained half of all the points Williams has earned in a single race and completely humiliated Latifi in the process.

The 2022 British GP seems to have produced the best race of the season so far! This was one of the most exciting races we have had in modern history.
