F1 fans ‘gutted’ as Aussie driver Daniel Ricciardo was robbed of a points result in Italian Grand Prix due to yet another McLaren stuff-up

Dumped Aussie McLaren star Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 season has lurched from one disaster to the next after he suffered another engine failure in Italy with a points result in sight. He was within six laps of a morale-boosting points finish at the Monza track when his engine developed an oil leak and he slowed and lurched to the right side of the track. McLaren team principal Andreas Seidl said it was a disappointing finish to what was shaping as a strong weekend. ‘It is obviously very unfortunate for Daniel, for us, that after a strong weekend on his side of the garage, the strong race today, that ultimately we couldn’t score the points that he deserves this weekend.’.
