The Italian Grand Prix is back
The Italian Grand Prix is back

The Formula One calendar has its eyes firmly set on Italy this weekend, as the drivers look to battle it out on the historic track at Monza.

Sebastian Vettel cut the gap on his closest rival Lewis Hamilton to 17 points after an impressive win at Spa last time out, exposing perhaps a few fallacies in the Mercedes setup. Despite the victory for Vettel however, Ferrari will be hoping that Kimi Raikkonen can have an impact too, after being forced to retire following rear wing damage in a first lap melee.

Not much needs to be said about Monza as a circuit - the track has seen a number of F1 stars come and go over the years and continues to be one of the most beloved on the entire calendar despite the growing number of accidents at the venue.

Hamilton will look to hit back this weekend and extend his lead at the top, while Vettel would be aiming for more of the same. Max Verstappen finished on the podium last time out, so don't be surprised if the Dutchman can pull a trick or two of his own in Italy.
