Motorsport: Daniel Ricciardo returns to Formula One winner's circle with dramatic Italian Grand Prix victory

Australian Daniel Ricciardo has won the Italian Grand Prix in a stunning McLaren one-two with Lando Norris at Monza, while Formula One title rivals Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton took each other out of the race.

The victory was McLaren's first since 2012 and Ricciardo's first since he was at Red Bull in 2018.

"About time," smiles the happy Australian. "To lead, literally, from start to finish, I don't think any of us expected that.

"To not only win, but to get a one-two, it's insane. For McLaren to be on the podium is huge."

Now an eight times Grand Prix winner, Ricciardo started on the front row, seized the lead from Verstappen at the start and completed his day with a bonus point for fastest lap right at the end.

Valtteri Bottas was third for Mercedes, after winning the sprint race and then starting at the back of the grid, due to engine penalties.

While McLaren celebrated, Verstappen and Hamilton had nothing to smile about.

The pair collided and crashed out after their pitstops, with Verstappen's Red Bull lifting off the kerb and ending up on top of Hamilton's Mercedes in the gravel, with halo head protection keeping the champion out of harm's way.

Both climbed out after the accident at the first chicane, with Verstappen's five-point lead in the championship unchanged.

"That's what happens when you don't give space," said Verstappen on the team radio.
