Italian Grand Prix 2017: What did we learn from today’s race?

Herein lies Monza’s phenomenon: Despite the circuit’s seemingly harmless layout, it’s elongated straits, high-speed corners and the legendary “Parabolica” task drivers with a tantalizing challenge that only the most skillful, like a Schumacher (most race wins- 5), can master.
