We have the customary track invasion here at Monza. The crowd floods onto the track to gather under the podium. It may have been a Red Bull win, but there are too big Ferrari flags on the pit straight and the chanting is very much for Alonso.

The drivers head out onto the podium to cheers from the crowd. We'll leave you now but make sure you keep checking the site for all the news and reaction after the race. That's the end of the European season. Singapore is up next and Vettel heads to the Far East with a 53-point lead.

Lap 53

Vettel wins in Monza. Alonso 5.4s back in second. Webber takes third, Massa fourth, Hulkenberg fifth, Rosberg sixth, Ricciardo seventh and Grosjean holds eighth from Hamilton. Button takes the final point in 10th ahead of Raikkonen who fails to score for the second race in a row.

A comfortable margin for Vettel in the end but Red Bull look genuinely relieved on the pit wall after a number of issues during the race. The tifosi have a Ferrari driver on the podium, but it's not been a great weekend for Alonso. The tensions at Ferrari will no doubt continue to rise ahead of Singapore.


Vettel starts the final lap. Told just to "bring it home. We've got enough issues".

Hamilton attacking Grosjean and Ricciardo on this final lap.

Hamilton lock up into the second chicane and skips the second apex. He has to give the position back.

Lap 52

Vettel's lead drops to 7.8s but Alonso will still be more worried about Webber behind. Massa's charge has waned and he is now 2.1s off Webber. Rosberg remains 0.6s off Hulkenberg in the battle for fifth.

Lap 51

Vettel told to protect the fronts under braking as well now. He has a gap of 8.3s to Alonso with three laps remaining.

Hamilton takes ninth from Button with ease down the straight. The McLarens' low top speed means they have no answer to the Mercedes.

Lap 50

Hamilton passes Perez into turn one and is pushing very hard. Button up next.

Lap 49

Hamilton attempts to pass Raikkonen but the Lotus blocks him into turn one and just holds onto the place. They are still gaining on the McLarens in front.

Massa is told to push and his engineer believes he can pass Webber. 1.6s is the gap to the Red Bull.

Hamilton passes Raikkonen after outfoxing him in the first chicane and getting a better exit to pass around the outside of the Curva Grande. Hamilton up to 11th and is now attacking Perez for a point.
