The schedule for this weekend is different from the norm with Qualifying having happened late on the afternoon of Friday 10 September; a Qualifying Sprint Race on Saturday 11 September; and the Race at the usual mid-afternoon start time on Sunday 12 September.
This past weekend’s race in the Netherlands saw home favorite Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing-Honda claim a dominant victory to reclaim first place in the Drivers’ Championship standings, with the Dutchman now leading Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton by three points.
The ‘Silver Arrows’, However, still have the edge in the Constructors’ Championship, holding a 12-point advantage over the Red Bulls, and they will hope for a strong showing at Monza, where they have been the dominant force in recent years.
This weekend’s round sees Formula 1 return to one of its spiritual homes, Monza, where Ferrari will be the centre of attention. The Italian team come to their home race on something of a high after drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz finished a strong fifth and seventh respectively at the Dutch GP, seeing Ferrari move into third place on the Constructors’ standings ahead of McLaren.
Sainz, though, has struggled for pace and is hoping for an improvement at Monza
“This means we need to look into what went wrong because I have never felt so slow in a race, to be honest. I was struggling a lot and had no pace whatsoever. I was looking forward to battling for the top five, and [instead] I was defending for the top 10.”
