All Set for the Grand Prix in Monza

A fire-red car with the Villa Reale of Monza in the background with the elite Italian airforce squadron, the “Frecce Tricolori”, flying overhead. The poster of Italy’s Formula 1 Grand Prix, running from September 4-6 at the Autodromo Nazionale in the city in Lombardy, has a futurist touch. This temple of speed has, since 1922, seen these single-seat racers fly by, pumping up the adrenalin of a jubilant public for one of the most highly-anticipated legs of the Formula 1 and, now, it is ready to host the 91st Edition of the competition hosted in Italy. However, this edition will differ from others. And while the event will be held without a public out of respect for health standards connected to the Covid pandemic, it can still be seen in all its glory on television. Typically an important part of this timeless race, fans won’t fill the grandstands waving the red flag of Ferrari or invade the track at the race’s conclusion to celebrate along with the driver’s under the special “flying” podium. Yet, despite the “safe distance”, the driver from Monaco Charles Leclerc, at the helm of his Ferrari, will still seek to ignite the enthusiasm of Italian fans by repeating last year’s victory by getting the better of the two Mercedes race cars driven by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas.
