Circuit Details

Monza is fondly known as the Temple of Speed and is the fastest circuit on the Formula 1 calendar. The circuit is characterised by long straights and a handful of chicanes and high speed corners. Monza has been an integral part of Formula 1 since its inception in 1950, and its rich history makes it the personification of the sport according to many.

One of the most famous corners is the Curva Parabolica, the final corner. It is here that many a race have been won or lost, or has seen a lot of drama.

The circuit itself has also undergone a number of changes since 1950. In other words, evolving from an oval to the modern day layout and still retaining its title of being one of the fastest F1 circuits.

Where to watch

In India, the practice sessions, qualifying and the race will be broadcast on the Star Sports network. In Africa, Supersport is in charge of broadcast while in Asia and Australia, Fox Sports handles the broadcast. Canada has RDS while China telecasts the race on CCTV.

Spain and Andorra have Movistar, while the United Kingdom has Channel 4 and Sky Sports. USA also shows the race on ESPN.
