There was no handskake after qualifying and Rosberg not hanging around to congratulate his team-mate, who clambers out of his car and gives the team a thumbs up.

The crowd is streaming across the track and fair play to the tifosi, they are still dragging the big Ferrari flag to the grid with them. Hamilton arrives to be weighed to applause from the glamorous grid girls, followed by a grinning Massa. Rosberg and Massa then start talking Italian to each other, while Hamilton goes in search of a Pirelli cap for the podium.

Massa gets a rousing ovation as he walks across the gangway to the podium.

Rosberg and Hamilton doing a good job of ignoring each other. Hamilton talking to Massa about his first podium in a year. No boos this time and Rosberg is smiling, which is good to see. Hamilton takes his place at the top of the podium for the British national anthem.

Lap 53

Hamilton has started his final lap, three seconds clear of Rosberg.

Kvyat misses the second chicane as well and there's brake dust coming out of Perez's Force India so he may have a similar problem to the Toro Rosso.

But it's all about what's happening at the other side of the circuit as Hamilton rounds the Parabolica as he takes his second career Italian Grand Prix victory after a superb recovery driver and Mercedes achieves another one-two.

Massa pumps his first as he crosses the line to return to the podium.

"Nice work mate get in there. Beautifully recovered." Bonnington tells Hamilton, who pumps his first as he returns to parc ferme.

Lap 52

Perez now having to look in his mirrors to fend off Button through the Parabolica. Looks like his front brakes are pretty cooked at the moment.

Kvyat goes straight on at the first chicane but somehow doesn't collect the cars in front of him or the barriers! He gets it back on the track but that was a scary moment for the Toro Rosso driver with Raikkonen just in front of him.

Lap 51

Gutierrez is limping around the field with a puncture, he'll get it back to the pits.

Perez is now dinking around the track behind Magnussen. He's had a great race as well. I usually do the driver of the day after every race and there are several candidates - Ricciardo and Perez both superb this afternoon.

Lap 50

Looks like the Mercedes drivers will be finishing in their current order unless something major happens, as we see a replay of Hamilton locking up into the first corner.

Still a big queue of cars behind Vettel.

I have barely mentioned him since the start but Massa on the verge of his first podium since Spain last year. Great drive from here and important for him to beat Bottas given how the last few races have gone.

Lap 49

Give laps left and Hamilton 4.5s ahead of Rosberg.

Button has dropped seven tenths behind Perez but perhaps he's saving for one last hurrah in the final laps. Vettel is now coming under pressure from Magnussen, worth remembering Vettel was the first man to stop so his tyres must be absolutely shot out there.
