Who won the Formula One Italian Grand Prix 2022?
Max Verstappen
Charles Leclerc
Daniel Ricciardo
Fernando Alonso

Correct Answer : Option (A) - Max Verstappen

Red Bull Max Verstappen won the 2022 Italian Grand Prix under the Safety Car, with pole-sitter Charles Leclerc finishing runner-up as Red Bull denied Ferrari a home victory at Monza.
He becomes just the ninth different driver in Formula One history to win five successive races in the sport alongside previous greats such as Nigel Mansell, Michael Schumacher and Alberto Ascari. 
The race controversially ended under safety car conditions following Daniel Ricciardo's late retirement as his McLaren experienced engine difficulties, but even still, it was clear that Ferrari and championship rival Charles Leclerc were again one step behind Verstappen throughout the race. 
A visibly annoyed Leclerc came home to finish P2 whilst Mercedes' George Russell claimed another podium finish in P3, his sixth of the year and fourth across the past five races. 
Ferrari's Carlos Sainz took P4 despite starting at the back of the grid due to an earlier penalty, while Lewis Hamilton also fought back from the back of the grid to finish P5. 
Sergio Perez, Lando Norris, Pierre Gasly, debutant Nyck de Vries and Zhou Guanyu rounded out the points-paying positions in the north of Italy.
