A superb race from Lewis Hamilton saw him win the Italian Grand Prix where he rose to the challenge and Sebastian Vettel who needed to take his chance could only come home in fourth.

The Brit and his closest title rival Sebastian Vettel who's now 30 points behind, collided on the opening lap with the German Ferrari driver sent spinning down to 18th place before recovering to 4th.

Hamilton then followed the other Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen closely before passing him nine laps before the end of the race.

The thrilling victory was a fifth in a row for Mercedes at Monza. "Then I was the one who spun around, which was ironic". "We got a lot of points so it could be a lot worse today". I left him room.

"Well I think you had more angles than I had but I tried to pass Kimi and then he put on the brakes and then I didn't really have a gap and I didn't want to try something silly", Vettel said.

On the front , the device sports a 13-megapixel selfie camera with Exmor RS sensor, f/2.0 aperture and 22mm wide-angle lens. While the former two are pretty standard, the Burgundy and Green colors seem fancy enough to help the Xperia XZ3 stand out.


Hamilton said he had already been "a bit surprised" that Vettel went to the left at the first chicane, where "there was a small touch between us all" and was surprised by his approach to the Roggia too.

The pair clashed at the Italian Grand Prix, with Hamilton going on to win, while Vettel's misjudgment in hitting the Mercedes driver meant he could finish only fourth.

"I was surprised when I got out", said Vettel.

"I think it was 100% Sebastian's fault". I'm sure you can always look at the data and see there's a little bit more but of course I'm pushing the vehicle as hard as I can and I'm really happy with the performance, really, this weekend.

"We couldn't have imagined we would have that kind of lead", Hamilton said. Racing resumed on lap four as the stewards announced they were taking no action, declaring it a "racing incident".

"But in Budapest I think it was a bit different, that really compromised my race big time. It wasn't really a case of "let's just go around and save the tyres for the last moment", we had to go, and unfortunately it didn't pay off today". "To be consistent, not make mistakes, to continuously deliver, takes everything and more".

"I'm happy to fight three cars, I'm happy to fight 19 cars", said Vettel, when asked whether he was hampered by having to essentially compete against three cars, including that of his teammate, rather than two.

"To know that I am up there with Michael is always a real privilege".

"It was unfortunate for us to get spun around and have a lot of damage but it could have been him spun around and us carrying on. They gave us a lot of support and we didn't delver for whatever reason".
