The final part of Formula 1’s latest triple-header takes us to Monza for the Italian Grand Prix. 

Home of the Tifosi and Ferrari, the Italian GP is a fan favourite for its atmosphere and iconic circuit. 

Max Verstappen heads to Italy with a three-point lead over Lewis Hamilton after winning on home soil last time out at Zandvoort.

Red Bull hasn’t won at Monza since 2013 so it will be a good gauge of the F1 pecking order as it stands.

Monza will also play host to F1’s sprint race format after it made its debut at Silverstone.

When is the Italian Grand Prix?

The 2021 Italian Grand Prix takes place on Sunday, 12 August. Cars will take to the track on Friday for one single practice session and then qualifying in the evening. FP2 and the F1 sprint takes place on Saturday ahead of Sunday’s grand prix.

Where is the Italian Grand Prix taking place?

The 2021 Italian Grand Prix is held at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza.

The circuit is 5.7934km (3.599 miles) long and consists of 11 corners.
