Fernando Alonso made a great start to the Italian Grand Prix, after managing to jump from fourth to first down to the first corner. Vitantonio Liuzzi got sideways on the grass down to turn one, lost control and crashed in to the sides of Vitaly Petrov and Nico Rosberg, which ended up blocking out Rubens Barrichello.

Sebastian Vettel managed to pass Alonso on lap three and regain first place. Mark Webber lost his front wing on lap five after a tangle with Felipe Massa at the first corner, Webber couldn’t make it back to the pits and crashed out into one of the track barriers.

Jenson Button managed to overtake Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher to take third place on lap eighteen, Schumacher then pitted at the end of lap eighteen. Lap twenty saw Alonso and Vettel pit, with Vettel holding a lead of around 10 seconds.

Michael Schumacher was very aggressive with his defending against Hamilton and could have received a drive through penalty for making two moves to block Hamilton at Ascari, Hamilton finally managed to pass Schumacher on lap twenty eight, after Schumacher was told by his Team Principal, Ross Brawn to "Make sure you leave room at Ascari."

Sebastian Vettel pit on lap thirty six, and came back out with a lead of over 30 seconds. Jenson Button managed to overtake Alonso on lap thirty six, with the Ferrari looking like it could be struggling for rear wheel traction. Sauber drivers, Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez both retired from the race after suffering from similar gearbox problems.

Sebastian Vettel cruised to victory followed by Jenson Button in second, Fernando Alonso in third, Lewis Hamilton in fourth, Michael Schumacher in fifth, Felipe Massa in sixth, Jaime Alguersuari in seventh, Paul Di Resta in eighth, Bruno Senna in ninth and Sebastian Buemi in tenth.
