The Italian Grand Prix will take place between the 6th and the 8th of September 2013 at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza circuit in Milan and is one of the longest running events in the motor racing calendar, dating all the way back to 1921.

Current

The race will be the twelfth Grand Prix of the Formula One season and German driver Sebastian Vettel will surely be the favourite to win after securing the F1 Drivers’ Championship Title in 2012, along with his team Infiniti Red Bull Racing, who won the Constructors’ Championship in 2012. The Grand Prix was won last year by young British driver Lewis Hamilton in a fantastic race who beat Sergio Perez by four seconds and also Fernando Alonso, who came in third place. The Italian Grand Prix is the home of racing teams Scuderia Ferrari, whose drivers have won the race an incredible nineteen times, and Scuderia Torro Rosso. However, there are no Italian drivers in this year’s Formula One, but Ferrari will definitely be looking to make it twenty wins with their two talented drivers in Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa.

Race Track

The Monza Circuit is 5,793km long and is a track with long straights and fast corners. Drivers will have to complete 53 laps covering 306,720km around the track which contains eleven corners, including the notorious Curva Grande, normally taken flat out by drivers. The Monza Circuit proudly claims itself as the fastest circuit on the calendar, with an average speed of around 250 km/h (155mph) and with top speeds which can reach up to 350 km/h (217mph). Rubens Barrichello recorded the fastest lap time in 2004, completing a lap in 1:21.046. An agreement has been signed by Bernie Ecclestone to keep the Italian Grand Prix in Monza until 2016.

History

The race track is renowned for its historic events. Back in 2008 at the Monza, Sebastian Vettel became the youngest F1 driver to win a Grand Prix, aged 21 years and 74 days, defeating Alonso’s record by 317 days. It is also where Michael Schumacher announced his retirement from F1 racing back in 2006, before coming back three years later. Who knows, this year’s race could provide even more events that can be added to the circuit’s lengthy history!
