F1: Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Qualify 1-2 for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza
- Ferrari Locks Out the Front Row: Kimmi on the Pole, Seb Along Side
The final race of the European portion of the 2018 F1 season comes this weekend with the Italian Grand Prix at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.
Recent history at Monza, perhaps the fastest track on the calendar, has favored MercedesAMG, who have produced the fastest car since Y 2014, and their entries have always been well-suited to the high speeds of Monza, as MercedesAMG has won every race at Monza since Y 2014.
The Y 2018 race could be much different given the super powertrain of Ferrari, especially at power tracks. Sebastian Vettel won at Spa-Francorchamps last week, a power circuit similar in nature to Monza.
As such, MercedesAMG could see its 1st Monza defeat since Y 2013. By coincidence, Vettel won that year, with Red Bull Racing, and he is likely the best positioned driver to unseat MercedesAMG.
The Italian Grand Prix will be live on Sky Sports F1.
Race day coverage will begin at 12.30p BST on Sunday, 2 September .
The Italian Grand Prix is held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza aka The Temple of Speed
The circuit is known for the fanatical support of the local fans, who get behind the Ferrari team.
And the track is renowned for its long straights and fast corners.
The race is 53 laps.
