Carlos Sainz starts his first Italian GP as a Ferrari driver

Autodromo Nazionale di Monza (5,793 meters, 11 corners, in the calendar since 1950)

  • This weekend Carlos will become the third Spanish Formula 1 driver in history to experience an Italian GP at Monza as an official Ferrari driver.
  • It will be the first time he meets the Tifosi at this legendary track, even though the capacity of the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza will be limited 50% due to the pandemic.
  • Carlos will wear a special helmet to mark this occasion, integrating the Italian flag into an old-school design inspired by the helmets of the 2000s.
  • The Italian GP will be the second round to feature a Sprint Qualifying, meaning that Sunday’s Starting Grid will be defined by an 18-lap race that will take place on Saturday afternoon.
