2015 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix Break
“La Pista Magica”, translated as the Magic Track and the local name for Monza. Few F1 tracks evoke the same feelings of emotion as the infamous Italian circuit, and come 6th September thousands of Formula 1 fans will again see why. The circuit has always been a fans’ favorite due to the high speed and action-packed nature of the race. It’s also home to one of the best atmospheres of the F1 schedule with many of the stands turned to a sea of red by the Tifosi, the legendary Ferrari fans, cheering their team on at their home track. With no Italian driver in this year’s championship, the home fans will be right behind the Ferrari drivers Vettel and Raikkonen. Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, have the best records of any current driver on Italian soil, having both won here twice. The pair, however, will have their work cut out to stop Lewis Hamilton, who won the event in 2014. This year’s race will be tightly poised as the world’s best drivers go head to head.
Monza was built in 1922, staging its first F1 race in 1950. Since its creation the track has undergone a number of safety changes, but still remains one of the fastest in the world – both the fastest Grand Prix and the fastest pole position lap in history were at Monza, giving it the nickname the “Cathedral of Speed”. It’s one of seven tracks still in use from the first ever World Championship calendar and has evolved much in this time, originally being split between a road circuit and a US style oval (it’s now exclusively road). The track in its current form boasts a number of difficult corners, with the most famous being Curva Parabolica. This is a long right hand turn at an increasing radius and the final corner between the start-finish line and the legendary straight. For a quick lap, drivers will need perfect execution with maximum exit speed – no easy task at Monza.
