F1 2022: Italian GP - Monza (Sep 11)

When was the track built?

Constructed in just 110 days in 1922, the Autodromo Nazionale Monza was the world’s third purpose-built race track, coming after Brooklands in the UK and Indianapolis in the US. Like those two tracks, the original circuit featured a daunting series of banked curves, as well as much of the ‘outfield’ section that’s still in use today.

When was its first Grand Prix?

Monza opened its doors on September 3 1922, just a week before it hosted that year’s Italian Grand Prix. It was then part of the original Formula 1 calendar in 1950, and has held the Italian Grand Prix every year bar one since.

What’s the circuit like?

Rapido! Formula 1’s fastest ever lap was set at Monza – Williams driver Juan Pablo Montoya’s 260.6km/h effort during practice for the 2004 Grand Prix – which should give you some idea of the nature of the track the locals call ‘La Pista Magica’. Cars are on full throttle for 80% of the lap, and hit their Vmax on the circuit’s 1.1km start/finish straight. From there, they roar off into the historic park section, where a series of big stops into tight chicanes give the brakes a good workout.

Why go?

The parkland setting of Monza, located just to the north east of Italy’s fashion capital Milan, makes for a relaxed, leafy setting for a Grand Prix, while the preserved Monza banking – spot it in the background as the cars exit the Parabolica, as well as on the flyover bridge they pass under en route to the Variante Ascari – leaves you in no doubt that you’re in the presence of a very special race track.

Where is the best place to watch?

Aim for the grandstand at the Variante del Rettifilo to witness the awesome spectacle of cars braking from around 350km/h to just 70km/h before negotiating the tight chicane. This is also one of the track’s best overtaking spots, as well as a magnet for first-lap tussles.

Last year RIC for sure still had his mojo here, winning the race (1-2 for McLaren)

My prediction is that Max is gonna dominate this track next sunday, and we might see some nice battles between Ferrari and Mercedes.

You think they'll be able to compete against RB after Spa? Another low aero power track.

I feel like this might be another 1-2 RB.

4 of the last 7 look to right in RB's wheelhouse(power tracks with longer straights). Italy, Austin, Mexico, Abu Dhabi.

I think Yas will be more Ferrari.

COTA and Mexico is a toss up but I think I'd also lean RB for those. Would love to see Checo win in Mexico and Monaco same year.

RB should be 1-2 here (unless mechanical failures or Checo or Latifi)

I don't see anyone challenging them other than Alpine and perhaps Williams? (they've both shown that their straight line speed is on par)

Can any of you American forum members explain why a indycar star would contemplate a move to AlphaTauri?

2 years at AT is a perfect learning time to move up to RB.

FIA says they're gonna stick to their rules. But F1 is the primary moneysource for the FIA (I believe almost 90%(!)).
And the recent expansion into the US with multiple races (Miami, Las Vegas) shows that the US is a very very important moneysource for the FIA.
Having a talented US driver to enter F1, is therefore something the FIA can't deny. Having Herta in F1 will greatly benefit F1 TV ratings in the US, so Herta is worth his weigth in gold (actually, that would be an incredible bargain , it's probably more like 100 times that)

I agree! Really like this dude.
F1 would surely benefit from a US GP winner (It's been a long time since the days of Mario). And of course an Asian star.
