Red Bull Racing haven’t scored a single podium at Monza in the hybrid-turbo era. But we expect that to change this Sunday. Yes, it is tough to imagine someone other than Max Verstappen winning the 2022 Italian Grand Prix…in front of the tifosi.
As for Ferrari, let’s hope the dash of yellow in their special livery brings better performance & results. Mercedes has scored more points (average) than Ferrari since the 2022 Australian GP (basically, since race #3).

In this 2022 Italian GP preview episode on the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil & Kunal tell you the key things to look for at Monza – Jacques Villeneuve’s test with Alpine, Ferrari’s 75th & Monza’s 100th year in the running, Alpine-Alonso & Williams-Albon’s top-speed (on a low downforce circuit).
And above all else, what gap will Max Verstappen have to the rest of the field in Qualifying & on Race Day? Remember, he demolished the other 19 drivers in low downforce-spec machinery at Spa; and Monza’s downforce requirements are the lowest for any circuit on the calendar. Tune in!
