What to Watch:
This is the Autodromo Nazionale Monza, affectionately known as Monza.
Or as others call it, the Temple of Speed.
Speed is the name of the game at Monza. The fastest lap recorded in F1 history came here, thanks to Juan Pablo Montoya’s 260.6 km/h pace during a practice session ahead of the 2004 Italian Grand Prix. Drivers will be full throttle for around 80% of the lap, and with a pair of DRS zones, the pace will be blistering.
That is just one of the storylines this week. Here are some others.
