There’s a reason the Italian Grand Prix is one of two races to be held in every Formula 1 season: Monza truly is the temple of speed. This historic Italian circuit is built for high-octane racing. Average lap speeds can reach a monumental 264km/h, with teams setting their cars up for high power and low downforce. It’s never short of drama, either. Pierre Gasly stormed to an iconic maiden win in 2020, beating McLaren’s Carlos Sainz to the chequered flag by a fraction of a second. It’s also the scene of Sebastian Vettel’s first win in F1 for the same team. And who could forget Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton hitting boiling point with a title-defining crash at turn 1 - helping McLaren deliver their first race win since 2012. But Monza truly springs to life when Ferrari meets the Tifosi's high expectations. Fans of the Italian team - known as the Tifosi - are some of the most passionate in the world, with iconic post-race scenes of track invasions every year. Fans will be treated to three support series in action, with the young stars of tomorrow battling in the FIA F2, plus the season finales for F3 and Porsche Supercup. The city of Milan itself is taken over by Grand Prix fever, with two of F1’s three non-British-based teams (Ferrari and AlphaTauri) based in Italy. Pizza, pasta and espresso make for perfect fuel for the race weekend.
