Italian Grand Prix: Radio silence adds to frustration for Hamilton

Hamilton's two points, allied to the eight claimed by team-mate Nico Rosberg, were also not enough to prevent Mercedes slipping back to third spot in the constructors' championship, as Ferrari's 2-4 finish overhauled the Brackley team in the race to finish second to Red Bull.

“In the end, that was a frustrating race because we had a very quick car today. We can never be certain what Vettel's ultimate pace could have been at the front of the field, but we saw Fernando and Mark fighting hard for second place and our drivers were matching their pace all the time...”
