Monza is one of those "must do" circuits as it has featured in the Formula One World Championship since the Championship began way back in 1950. The Italian GP is currently the fastest race on the calendar and now the only circuit which sees the cars in low downforce configuration, this circuit is the one which truly shows the speed of a F1 car. So if enjoying fast cars whiz by is what you want from a Grand Prix then you have come to the right place and we would be delighted to offer you one of our bespoke Monza Grand Prix Packages.
One of the most popular of the GP events in the calendar and is held at the beginning of September in the Royal Park, Monza. The Autodromo Nazionale Monza is just outside Milan and attracts huge crowds from all over Europe, but of course, it is famed for the fanatical fans called the Tifosi who descend on the park in vast numbers to cheer on their beloved Scuderia Ferrari!
This iconic looking track in the shape of shoe which coincides with the the country looking like a boot, covers some 5.793km (3.6 miles) of fast scintillating track full of thrills and spills. The Monza circuit experiences cars lapping at incredible speed currently reaching over 220mph on the start-finish straight. The best features of this exciting track are the Curva Grande, the Curva di Lesmo, the Variante Ascari and the Curva Parabolica. The high speed curve, Curva Grande, is located after the Variante del Rettifilo which is located at the end of the front straight or Rettifilo Tribune, and this is where the F1 cars go flat out to reach their top speeds.
In 2009 a Formula One car achieved a maximum speed of 340kph (210mph), which occurred at the end of the start/finish straight. They also experienced a maximum g-force of 3.80 through turn 7, the second Lesmo, which is fairly shifting it. Though still not as fast as Juan Pablo Montoya in the McLaren-Mercedes who reached a whopping 372kph (230mph) at Monza in 2005 and that record is still going today, WOW!
Rubens Barrichello recorded the fastest ever pole position lap at Monza in 2004 when he lapped in at 1 minute 20.089s, going an average 161 mph. But in the pre-qualifying session for the same race (which did not count for a grid position, but only Q-running order), Juan Pablo Montoya created another record from Italy, in that he lapped the track in 1 minute 19.525s averaging a speed of 262kph (162 mph), which remains the fastest lap ever recorded in a Formula One car.
Embroiled in a tightly fought battle with Lewis Hamilton; Sebastian Vettel has not slipped from the top spot in the championship thus far this season (there was a brief joint-first between himself and Hamilton following the second race). Until now.
Today, Hamilton finally took the lead in the Formula One World Championship – with 7 races remaining. And he did it in style.
It has been a record-breaking 8 days for Hamilton. Last week he equalled the pole record set at 68 by Michael Schumacher, today he broke it – helping to cement himself as the fastest driver of his era. His performance in qualifying at Monza this weekend, in wet and difficult conditions was astonishing. On Saturday, Hamilton was more than a second clear of everyone else.
