Ten of the best pictures which tell the story of the Italian Grand Prix weekend.
James Calado, Friday
James Calado made his first appearance in an official F1 session during practice.
Calado is backed by the Racing Steps Foundation, an initiative supported by 1964 world champion John Surtees to provide funding for British racing drivers and motorcycle racers who have difficulty attracting sponsorship. Their logo can be seen on his barge board.
Valtteri Bottas, Friday
Marshals keep an eye on the progress of Valtteri Bottas during practice.
Sergio Perez, Mark Temple, Sunday
McLaren marked their 50th anniversary with these natty flat caps at Monza. Here Sergio Perez swaps notes with race engineer Mark Temple.
Start, Italian Grand Prix
Sebastian Vettel won the all-important charge to the first corner ahead of the fast-starting Felipe Massa, but locked up his front-right tyre which gave him cause for concern during his first stint.
Behind them, Kimi Raikkonen runs into the back of Sergio Perez, damaging his front wing and his prospects for the race.
Mark Webber, Italian Grand Prix
Mark Webber’s front wing shows signs of damage following minor contact with Alonso, who put a superb pass on him at the Roggia chicane on lap three.
Fernando Alonso, Felipe Massa, Italian Grand Prix
In qualifying Massa’s job was to stay in front of Alonso, to give him a tow to improve his lap times. In the race it was Massa’s job to stay behind Alonso, to not take points off him, so he let his team mate past on lap eight.
Next year it will be someone else’s job.
Jules Bianchi, Max Chilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Italian Grand Prix
Following his lap one pit stop for a new front wing, last-placed Raikkonen gained four tenths of a second on leader Vettel over the next seven laps.
He lost just seven-tenths of a second passing the two Marussias, on the same lap Massa waved Alonso past, then began to close on Vettel again.
Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, Italian Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton was also mounting a comeback drive following a puncture early in the race. He caught Raikkonen’s Lotus and passed him five laps from home.
Nico Hulkenberg, Italian Grand Prix
A superb weekend for Nico Hulkenberg saw the Sauber driver qualify third, behind the Red Bulls, and finish fifth, behind the Red Bulls and Ferraris. Ten points for fifth place more than doubled his – and Sauber’s – points haul for 2013.
Podium, Italian Grand Prix
The Italian crowd celebrates beneath the best podium in Formula One.
