F1 2023: Italian GP - Monza (Sept 3)

F1 2023: Italian GP - Monza (Sept 3)

Schedule:

Autodromo Nazionale Monza

Monza
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.

Now the pressure for Ferrari is really on.
The Tifosi and the Italian press can be pretty ruthless when it comes to not living up to expectations.
Ferrari's performace and strategy this year has not been very good. Also because next to Mercedes, Aston Martin and McLaren have booked great progress.
Monza is very much a high speed track, so it should be very much favouring RB. Maybe Mclaren too.
But mid season usually also is the time where drivers start getting grid penalties for swapping out parts more times than the allowed free number of times.

My prediction:
1. VER
2. NOR
3. PER
4. PIA
5. LEC

Ferrari already announced new colours of the suits.
Last year it was completely yellow, now it's a bit more retro with red, yellow and black.
Of course it'll only look good if they make it to the podium

yeah he's sure a points candidate. But will he reach the top 5? or the podium?

The forecast is rain for Sunday. We will see how AM's upgrades perform in this high speed circuit and you know ALO is always going to extract the maximum performance from the car.

hmmm, if it's raining, my prediction may be not that good.
Indeed, ALO and maybe HAM might enter the top 5. Both on experience and in the rain, the performance of the car is less important.

edit: bimmerpost is superslow again with lots of timeouts (it's hit or miss at certain times).... are they under ddos attack or something like that?

VER
PER
ALB

Stays dry so PER qualifies on front row. In a surprise move VER is only allowed to use inters as emergency BOP measures are approved before the race. He only wins by 15s.

I see it but don't believe it.
Have you ever watched 'Ramseys Hotel Hell' my friend, I'm sure you have and Charlie is a sort of Ramsey? trying to relaunch Ferrari, but we know he's up against a mountain! Ramseys words in on one of his hotel visits ''I try to get through to the owner who's totally oblivious''.

Without doubt the best motor racing F1 film I have watched (even with its faults) @9:38
James Garner playing Pete Aron did his own driving in the film.
