“Weather forecasts look good so far and it would be good to have a weekend without rain!” said Verstappen, who can handle wet conditions well. “With nine wins in a row, I hope I can continue the streak, but we’ll see.”
Monza is a fast circuit and you get really high top speeds, so it’s very different from Zandvoort, where we’ve just been
Last year Verstappen was the best for the first time in the Grand Prix of Italy, which has a circuit with long straights. “It will be very important this weekend to generate as much top speed as possible while taking good care of the tires,” said the reigning world champion.
“I look forward to returning to Italy and seeing all the passionate Italian fans. There is a lot of motorsport history in the country, so it’s always nice to race there. Monza is a fast circuit and you get very high top speeds, so it’s very different from Zandvoort, where we’ve just been. It will be interesting to see how we perform at Monza.”
