Here below the complete classification:
The latter number points out the total views of the reproposition of 2019 edition of Italian Grand Prix: the famous battle between Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton where the Cavallino reported an historical victory in front of the Tifosi enthusiasts.

Needless to say that Liberty Media is trying every single option to keep the fan base warm and ready for the beginning of the 2020 season, still far to be assured; what can we surely assess that the old good real, may seems going better than virtual.
