we need to put in perspective that the only reason this was even a contest was that 11.5 second pit stop, max was that much faster otherwise and should have pulled away. but the high speeds and dirty air make passing hard, they did say he would have been a second a lap faster than he was if he had clean air but couldnt get by ric

That ain't a big enough differential to pass at Monza. Danny looked every bit the winner from the first turn. Fantastic result for all concerned. I'm a much bigger fan of the Zac Brown McLaren than I was of the Ron Dennis version.

Your wish has been granted.

Also worth noting piastri won f2 feature earlier
The problem for Piastri is that he's an Alpine academy driver. If he wins the F2 title in his rookie year, he's got nowhere to go. F2 regs don't allow the champion to race in the category again. All F1 seats are tied up for next year apart from one at Alpha but the smart money is on Zhou as he comes with a large wad of cash....

and possibly the largest untapped marked in the world for F1

It's just amazing that someone can win the championship in a prominent feeder category then effectively be sidelined. Hopefully he'll at least be absorbed into one of the bigger teams as a test driver at least (ala Ocon for Mercedes in 2019).
